Connection Between Vitamin D and Hair Loss

vitamindbodypicVitamin D is a vital nutrient for human health and plays roles in bone health and the prevention of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other conditions. When deficient, vitamin D can contribute to a number of health issues; among these is the potential for hair loss.

Here are some facts about vitamin D and hair loss…

A recent study held at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, found that vitamin D supplementation stimulated hair growth. The research was conducted with subjects that could not grow hair under normal circumstances.

  • There are also clinical studies that prove there is a connection between vitamin D and the quality of hair. Its deficiency can cause change in hair color, hair thinning and hair loss in both men and women.

  • In today’s society, most people spend their time indoors which allows for little sun exposure. Because vitamin D is synthesized in the skin through the exposure of UV rays, a surprisingly high percentage of the population have vitamin D deficiencies or low levels of vitamin D in their bodies.

  • Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium in the body, which is essential for healthy follicles and healthy hair. Therefor calcium deficiencies or having a low calcium level can also lead to shedding or thinning hair.

  • Vitamin D contains Omega 3 fatty acids which help keep the scalp free of infections. Omega 3 also helps maintain proper circulation of nutrients which is important for hair growth.

  • Giving your body the right amount of nutritional support helps encourage the development of stronger hair cells and the production of healthier hair growth.

Keep Your Hair Healthy This Summer – Even When You Travel

Most people know how important it is to protect your skin from the sun and the harsh UV rays during the hot summer months approaching…. but what about protecting your hair?

Intense UV light can cause just as much damage to your locks.  Overexposure can make hair more dry, rougher and more brittle or even straw like. Color can also fade much faster, or even change. Here’s some helpful tips…

*If you can, wear a hat! Especially if you plan to be in the sun for long periods of time. 

*If hats aren’t your thing… try an updo or wrapping it up. The ends of your hair are the oldest and weakest part of the strand and are more likely to be damaged. Partial coverage is better than none.

 *Stay away from peroxide and alcohol.

*Make sure your hair is getting the moisture it needs! Using a good leave-in conditioner with a UV protectant and detangler is a MUST!

I’ve recommended Welker rePHreshed hair care products before, and right now you can get free shipping with the purchase of a travel kit  (airline approved) that includes a great leave-in conditioner and sulfate-free shampoo…
