Hair loss and diet

Hair loss and diet

Seasonal changes, stress of daily life, unsuitable cosmetics, repeated blow-drying and coloring, hormonal disturbances. Our hair undergoes daily aggressions which weaken and refine them so that in the long term they end up falling. Obviously, it is not only about these factors, there are others such as the diet which nowadays is impoverished and no longer provides the quantity of nutrients necessary for the construction of the hair fiber.

Discover in this article how to avoid hair loss thanks to a diet and an adapted hair food supplement .

The composition of the hair

Hair is made up of 95% keratin. This keratin is a so-called "fibrous" protein , i.e. a protein that plays a structural role : it enters into the composition of body tissues and serves as a basis for the production of enzymes or hormone. Its main role is protection .

Keratin is composed of B vitamins, trace elements, minerals and sulfur amino acids. Vitamin B5 limits hair loss , accelerates growth and acts on cell protection , vitamin B9 acts on cell repair and vitamin B8 stimulates hair growth. Zinc protects against oxidative stress, iron carries oxygen to cells as does magnesium . It is essential to stimulate the blood microcirculation of the scalp in order to provide the hair bulb with all the nutrients necessary for healthy hair. Finally, methionine fights against the aging of the body, it strengthens the hair because it contains sulphur, an essential element for keratin. The action of cystine is coupled with that of zinc , it contributes to the synthesis of proteins and collagen. It helps absorb calcium, one of the factors needed to form collagen, and lysine stimulates hair growth .

In short, these are nutrients that you can find in food and that go into the composition of hair. When the intake is insufficient, you have vitamin deficiencies responsible for hair loss , your hair is weakened, you can observe a loss of shine and a loss of mass .

Hair loss

Hair loss is not always linked to food, in fact, nowadays we suffer from many daily attacks . Stress and hormonal imbalances have their share of guilt. Cortisol is the stress hormone , it is triggered when we are subjected to daily stress. Its role is to help us prepare to deal with the stress suffered. However, when the stress is too great and constant , it can become chronic and its rate remains too high . Its secretion causes the hair follicles and blood vessels to retract, the hair fiber is no longer irrigated correctly , the nutrients are therefore no longer provided in sufficient quantity and the hair becomes thin, fragile and eventually, it ends up falling out.


Then, we are not all equal, genetics has its little say. There are genetic pathologies such as alopecia for example. It is seen more in men than in women . It is in fact, an excess of male hormones : testosterone, which accelerates hair growth and modifies the hair cycle which is done in three phases . The first phase is the Anagen phase , a growth phase for a period that can span 2 to 5 years. Then, with age, this phase becomes shorter and shorter . The second phase is the so-called Catagen phase . It concerns only 3% of our hair and is likened to a “sleep” phase since the hair no longer grows . However, it remains attached to the hair follicle. The third and final phase is the Telogen phase . It is a resting phase , it concerns 12% of the hair. The hair does not grow , it remains attached to its follicle for a period of 6 to 7 months until it eventually falls out and gives way to the creation of a new hair.

In the case of alopecia, the bulb gets tired more quickly and ends up atrophying and creating areas of fine hair where there are fewer of them. Once the hair dies we can observe “empty” areas .

Finally, there are hormonal disorders that occur during menstrual cycles, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or at the time of menopause. Since hair growth is linked to the action of estrogen when these hormones fall, hair also falls . Take the example of pregnancy, throughout this stage of conception, our hormones work, their production is increased. Thanks to estrogen we have beautiful, silky, shiny hair and when we give birth we lose all these benefits. Progesterone and estrogen drop causing significant hair loss. Most women are affected by hair loss at the time of certain hormonal disturbances and it is completely normal. It is generally regulated automatically at the end of the menstrual cycle, for example. However, in the event of menopause, the production of estrogen stops suddenly, which can cause a significant thinning of the hair. For some, they push back for others it will be a disaster. This is why there are cosmetics adapted to this problem.


First, you can change your lifestyle for a balanced, healthy and varied diet . Bring seasonal fruits and vegetables, foods rich in vitamins and minerals for a colorful plate! Opt for complex carbohydrates rather than refined , they contain less simple sugars and more fiber. According to recent studies, refined sugars as well as processed products cause hormonal reactions responsible for hair disorders . We also recommend that you consume good fatty acids, rich in essential omega, that is to say which are not produced by the body but which must be provided by food. Oil seeds such as walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds, vegetable oils and fatty fish are rich in omega 3 and 6. They have many antioxidant and cholesterol-lowering properties, for example. You can bring vegetable or animal proteins for their quantity in amino acids.
