I am 29 years old and I have tried every product to keep my hair healthy so it can grow and have body, but nothing works and now my strands are breaking off. Do you think it’s a good idea for me to go Natural? What can I use to help them grow? —Anikea

Going Natural might be healthier for your mane’s overall condition as long as it is cared for properly. It sounds like you’re having a difficult time getting the healthy growth you desire and you’re basing it on your hair care regimen. It is important to consider product use and daily care, but perhaps you should also consider the internal things that can have a direct impact on your coif’s ability to grow.

Your tresses are nourished directly from your blood stream, so iron, thyroid and vitamin D levels could have a direct impact on your strands. When you have your next check-up with your doctor, ask for these levels to be tested to see if the weakness in your mane is the result of an internal imbalance.
