1. Clean up your diet: Remove sugars, pasteurized dairy, & processed foods from your diet.


2. Soak out the phytates: Soak grains, legumes, & nuts. To learn how to soak your grains and nuts, check my previous posts.


3. Consume more zinc: Eat zinc-rich foods such as pumpkin seeds, eggs, & sunflower seeds.


4. Get more silica: Make silica-rich foods such as cucumbers, celery, bell peppers, and sprouts part of your daily ingredients.


5. Consume collagen-rich foods:  Bone broth, organ meats, onions, cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. While hair does not contain collagen (like the skin), collagen peptides can provide your diet with more amino acids. Those amino acids can then be turned into keratin to form healthy hair at the follicle. Additionally, it can support scalp health and buffer against follicle irritation.


6. Get lots of good fats: Consume generous amounts of virgin coconut oil, eggs, extra-virgin olive oil, wild-caught salmon, and grass-fed butter/ghee.  These will provide essential fats that will improve the texture of the hair and scalp.


7. Take cold water showers: Hot water tends to dry out our skin, so it’s best to use cold water to tighten your cuticles and pores, which will prevent them from getting clogged. Coldwater can “seal” the pores in the skin and scalp, too, preventing dirt from getting in.


8. Eliminate harmful shampoo ingredients: These mutagenic ingredients cause severe damage to your hair and scalp: Sulfates, Parabens, Polyethylene Glycols, Triclosan, Formaldehyde, Synthetic Fragrances and Colors, Dimethicone, Retinyl Palmitate.


9. Check Out for These Deficiencies: Iron, zinc, B12, and vitamin D. Selenium deficiency is also a culprit cause. Although it is rare when it occurs, it may disrupt thyroid functioning, which can cause hypothyroidism and hair loss.


10. Acknowledge the damaging effect of stress on your hair: How you handle stress can impact hair loss.
