A mother has sworn off hair dye after suffering a horrific allergic reaction, The Daily Mail reported October 23rd. The article, “Mother vows never to dye her hair again after suffering horrific allergic reaction which caused 'agonising' blisters,” noted that Lyn Gregory, 56, from Poole, in Dorset, claimed she suffered the reaction to Schwarzkopf Live Colour despite having completed a skin test 48 hours earlier. She commented, ‘It left me in agony. I had to cut my hair to stop it brushing on my neck and irritating it. I will never dye my hair again.’ (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2473045/Mother-vows-dye-hair-suffering-horrific-allergic-reaction.html#ixzz2jHpksa3L)

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored ways to have healthy hair, skin and nails. Yourwellness Magazine explained, ‘Nothing gives your age away quite like your skin, hair and nails. This is why new product development in the cosmetic industry is focused on incorporating vitamins and anti-ageing nutrients and antioxidants into skin-, hair- and nail-care products. However, if applying these vitamins to your body externally holds some benefit to your wellness, imagine how beneficial they could be to your wellbeing if you consume them through your diet!’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/09/which-nutrients-can-strengthen-your-skin-hair-and-nails/#sthash.G2pmwSI3.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine outlined important nutrients for hair, skin and nails:

1. Skin – Rooibos tea contains potent antioxidants which specifically target skin health. Brewer’s yeast is a natural source of vitamin B complex, zinc, chromium, amino acids and many other important nutrients which help to reduce acne. Omega 6 fatty acids can reduce eczema, while omega 3 fatty acids are helpful in psoriasis.

2. Hair – Try supplements or dietary sources of vitamin B Complex (in particular vitamin B5), biotin, omega 3 essential fatty acids, omega 6 essential fatty acids, zinc, selenium, L-methionine and vitamin E.
