Our bodies tell us if there’s something not right inside. For example, when our hormones are not balanced or lack of certain nutrients, our skin and hair will let us know instantly.
Weak, damaged hair and fall outs are a sign of nutrient deficiency. This concludes that our body is lacking in vitamins and minerals like magnesium, calcium, iron, among others.
