Know what your hair says about health

Oct 15 2013, 8:55am CDT | by IANS

New York, Oct 15 (IANS) Dry or thin or any other hair problem -- all are connected to health. The tress issues might be signs of diseases you are unaware of.

New York, Oct 15 — Dry or thin or any other hair problem -- all are connected to health. The tress issues might be signs of diseases you are unaware of.

Huffingtonpost.com shares a list of health conditions linked to hair problems:

- If you once had thick and lustrous hair that turned fine and limp, check how you've been treating your hair. Swimming in chlorinated water and using hair colour are some of the causes of hair shine loss. But limp, dry hair may also be a sign of hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, in which your thyroid gland doesn't produce enough hormones, causing your metabolism to slow down.

- Dandruff is a common problem that can be easily treated with an anti-dandruff shampoo. But if your dandruff is starting to turn into thick scaly patches, it could be a sign that you have psoriasis. It is a long-term skin problem that causes skin cells to grow rapidly that leads to thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin.

- The average person loses about 100 strands a day and it is considered to be normal as the hair volume is unaffected. But if your hair starts to feel markedly thinner, it may be a sign of hypothyroidism or a sign of a hormonal imbalance relating to polycystic ovarian syndrome.

- Another sign of a more serious problem could be dry and brittle hair that breaks easily. Your hair is made up of a protein called keratin, and if you're not getting enough protein in your diet, it could weaken your hair. This could also be another sign of a thyroid issue, so be sure to check with your doctor if this is the case.
