The best remedy for breaking and shedding hair?Ca not believe you ask for help and so many people give idiotic answers! Hopefully mine will be a bit more helpful! If it's physically coming out at the roots then it could well be a deficiency. Need to check that your diet is balanced and that you are eating enough (hair loss is often seen in people who only eat a small range of food or live on fast food; it's also common in anorexics). But your best bet is to see your doctor if this is the case. It could be any one of a number of deficiencies and they will be able to refer you to pin point the ones lacking in your diet. It could also be related to stress or hormones so, again, your doctor is your best bet. If it's just that your hair is breaking off mid-shaft then no amount of supplements will help - hair is dead by the time you see it past the scalp and nutrients can not work their way down the hairs. In this case you need some serious deep-conditioning. If you can afford it Wella Professional Power mask is the best - I get it cheap on eBay. A salon will charge you upwards of 10 to apply a mask but you can buy a pot and do it at home regularly for a fraction of the price (it's the mask that my hairdresser uses and I've got wise as to how to get the same effect for less!). A cheaper option is Lush Retread or one of the Elvive Masks (the one in a yellow pot - I can not remember the name!). They are not quite as good, but certainly better than normal conditioner. And, sadly, if this does not work, then the only option is to have your hair cut. Although, after having it cut, use a mask once or twice a week and your hair will be less likely to break (as well as cutting down on blow drying and straightening, difficult, I know). Hope this helps.3. how to get shiny hair?Your hair is envy from us stick straight haired girls! If you know how to care for your hair type, you wo not have this problem.
