I love winter, but my skin and hair disagrees. The cold weather in the combination of the dry heat we have in our houses and office, necessarily leads to dehydrate our hair and skin.
Trichologists say that a hormonal imbalance can lead to numerous of inner and outer issues, from adult acne to weight gain. If your hormones are out of control the effects will show throughout the whole body (and that includes your hair). Then stress, iron deficiency, thyroid imbalance, vitamin B12 deficiency, extreme weight loss, age, and not taking care of your hair and skin plays a huge role.
I have been dealing with excessive hair loss from August until October, and I knew where the problem was. I washed my hair everyday, styled them very often with blow dry, straightener and curler. The nutritional deficiency and the stress was a problem too. So no wonder why I lost so much hair and my skin wasn’t really glowing.
If you have the same problem, don’t freak out! Hair shedding is normal and a part of our every day life. But changing your hair care, and nutritional deficiency is a must.
There are tons of products that claim to help with everything, but how do you go about deciding which product is right for you? I even tried the Sugarbear hair vitamins hype. Forget them! These are just sugar gums and do absolutely NOTHING for hair.
Finally, I found what works for me, and I am happy to share my favorite natural and vegan supplements for hair and skin:
OSKIA – MSM BIO PLUS
The ‘Beauty Mineral’ – MSM, a naturally-occurring organic Sulphur compound, supports the eﬃciency of healthy skin cells, helping to improve skin structure, elasticity and condition for a healthy-looking complexion, as well as helping to maintain the strong condition of hair and nails. With MSM Bio-Plus all these benefits have now been increased by blending MSM with an extract from black pepper fruits.

These nutritional supplement capsules are great for hair, skin and nails, and support our well-being with natural ingredients from within.
