Those of you that are familiar with me from the hairboards, know that I am on a personal mission to lose weight/get healthier. Since embarking on that journey (10lbs down…whooo hooo!), I've started paying attention to what I put in my mouth, and I'm starting to notice the benefits in more places that just the scale. I've been researching vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements to ensure that I’m getting the necessary amounts of these things while on a reduced calorie diet. But what I've noticed is that I’m seeing a difference in my hair/skin/and nails as well. My hair is shedding a LOT less, my dryness issues are getting better, and my hair and nails are getting thicker.
This series is dedicated to examining what we put in our mouths and how it affects our hair. I'll cover a bunch of topics/questions that I've been asked about on various hairboards as well as stuff I'm learning along the way.
So....stay tuned for the first Wellness Wednesday topic on natural hair and the gym.
