From baldness to dandruff, oily hair to hair loss, scalp issues are more common than most people think. Many people have at least one scalp-related problem at some point in their lives, with medical professionals reporting that baldness is becoming more common with those in their 20s.
We spoke to Dr Eileen Lee, Operations Director of DrSpa and DrHair to find the ways to healthy looking hair. Dr Eileen Lee has over 23 years of beauty and wellness experience and is also a qualified Nutritionist and an appointed industry advisor for International Personnel Certification.
Dr Eileen Lee’s strong interest in aesthetic science was inspired by her passion to help everybody, young and old to look their best at all times. To this end, she has done extensive research to develop the Clinical Solution System treatment protocol system for her chain of medic-aesthetic centres.
BM: What are the real cause for hair loss?
DrEL: There are many contributing factors but mainly are due to over-active Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in our body.
BM: Does our diet affect hair loss? What should we eat to slow down hair loss?
DrEL: There is no exact solution to this question. But in the past few years, researcher found out that food that contain high vitamin A and dark green vegetable plays a bigger part in dietary wise that affects our hair loss problem. As for prevention, will suggest that we can take in vitamin B tablet instead from food. As there’s not much food that contains B1, 2, 6, and 12 at 1 go.
BM: What are the ingredients we should watch out for in shampoo?
DrEL: They are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Parabens, Diethanolamine, and Imidazolidinyl Urea.
There are no facts to say that they can cause hair loss directly, but it plays a bigger part as in terms of ingredients that contribute to hair loss.
