    Basically, the body “considers” our hair and nails to be non-essentials, so when we are ill nutritional resources tend not to get to hair and nails and they become more fragile. Hair and nails are the first things to lose nutritional resources and the last things to get them back as we get healthy again.

    I was advised by people to treat my hair very gently during the time I was ill hyperthyroid. I stopped perming. My long-time hairdresser refused to put any type of harsh chemical on my hair. I have also heard that coloring is hard on hair. I tried to do a very casual style that required little to no “fussing,” and certainly no “teasing.”
