You could use more SPF protection
Have dry, brittle hair that breaks easily? Consider how much time you’re spending outside. Too much sun exposure can dry and damage hair, especially in people with blonde or gray locks. Plus, if you have thin hair, your scalp is prone to sunburn. When you’re outside, wear a hat with sun-protective fabric that has a UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) of 30. Here’s how to repair damaged hair with items that are already in your home.
You’re eating too much junk food
A diet packed with highly processed foods can lead to a mane that’s dull or thin. Without a balanced diet, the body transports whichever nutrients it can get to your heart and other crucial organs, leaving your hair behind. Focus on colorful whole foods (yes, fruits and veggies). If your hair is slow to grow, you could be low on protein, the main building block of hair. Squeeze in two to three servings of protein each day through foods like meat, chicken, eggs, fish, tofu, whole grains, and nuts. These are the signs your hair is desperate for certain nutrients.
