Problem №1: splitting hair
If your regularly cut your hair (every 3-4 weeks), you are careful with the hairdryer, and yet your hair gets to look like straw, think about your diet – you have to eat more fruit and vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds, vegetable fats, and especially drink water. Forget about fried, spicy and fat food (including the one prepared in fast food restaurants).
Advice: Spread on your hair olive oil, castor or almond oil, then cover it with a towel. In 1 hour, wash it and spread a yolk and yoghurt on your hair. Finally, rinse your hair with a decoction of chamomile or lime blossom. You can repeat the procedure 1-2 times per week, until the situation gets normal.
Problem №2: tearing hair
This often is a signal for guts problem. Try to strengthen your hair with the help of freely available tools, but if there is no improvement, seek for the help of a specialist.

Problem №3: “unsmoothhair
This suggests insufficient smoothness of hair, as well as burning of pigments (natural or artificial). The main reason for the unhealthy look of the hair is low hemoglobin. Women generally suffer more often from iron deficiency or anemia, as they lose iron during their monthly cycle.
Advice: you need more Vitamin Н that is hard to find in nature and that is why one has to take products containing this Vitamin. Feed your body by eating more almonds, avocado, dairy, pumpkin seeds.

Problem №6: hair loss
No room for panic. Try to analyze its condition for the last 6 months. If you have just given birth or for any other reason, you aborted your pregnancy, don’t worry. Hair loss often is due to endocrine disorders. Such changes in the organism provoke misbalances in the male and female hormones, and this influences the hair.

Advice: Eat less salt and acidic foods, do not overwork, and avoid stress.
Problem №9: suddenly blond hair gets darker
You have to consult a specialist. The darkening of the hair may be a signal for problems with the liver or gallbladder – difficult drain bile from the liver into the intestine contributes to falling levels of coloring pigments contained in it. The blood spreads the pigments to the roots of the hair and it gets darker.
Advice: Give up fried food, carbonated drinks and ice cream.
It is proved that the hair is thickest around 30 years of age. From 30 to 50 years, its quantity sharply (with some people gradually) decreases and after that, it remains unchanged.
