Holiday Food Could Ruin Your Hair!

It’s that wonderful time of the year again when we gather with our families to enjoy a delicious traditional dinner. Tasty dips, three different types of pie, sugar, peppermint, chocolate chips cookies, candy, hot cocoa, eggnog, wine, and all that yummy holiday food and drinks that we have been waiting for!

Everything sounds amazing but, when New Years comes and your hair starts feeling greasier, dryer, even flakier, or you find more hair on your pillow and on your bathroom floor, and you may find yourself asking why?!

Well, after enjoying all this tasty, fulfilling food and some extra pounds later, ask yourself: What did I do wrong that ruined my hair and skin?


Let’s recap what you may have been eating since Thanksgiving:

  • Deep fried food: Greasy food equals greasy skin, including on your scalp, which means your hair and skin will be more likely to become oily. When eating a lot of greasy foods, scalp care becomes even more important.
  • Alcohol: Slows down the level of zinc in your blood which could lead to hair loss. It dehydrates you which could lead to dry, brittle hair.
  • Diet soda: Artificial sweeteners like Aspartame has been linked to hair loss.
  • Sugar: Blood sugar will increase its levels of androgen hormone which shrink the hair follicle in both men and women, and could lead to hair thinning. Also, sugar dehydrates you and hinders the absorption of protein, which could be the reason for dry hair.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Even though holidays are a time to take a break from your daily routine, relax for a while, and not worry about a thing, just remember that the choices you make will show on your hair and skin, and will have an impact on your health.
