7 Things Your Hair Reveals About Your Health

Although hair can tattle on your health conditions, Mirmirani says that patients more commonly complain about the damage done by coloring and using heat to style hair.

Too much heat, from daily flat iron use or blowouts, can certainly damage your hair, making it dry, brittle, and hard to maintain, says Tania Moran, a licensed hairstylist at Swank Hair Salon in New York City. Moran recommends using no more than one hot tool per day (infrequent double heat processes are okay, but not daily).

Whenever you’re applying heat to your hair, always use products with protective ingredients, she adds. “Serums and shine drops tend to have qualities that preserve the hair when using direct and indirect heat,” she explains.

Getting your hair professionally colored is unlikely to cause much damage, Moran says, but bleaching your hair and using boxed hair color at home can have adverse effects. You can mitigate any damage to your hair by using the right products. “Post-color treatment, use proper color-preserving and moisturizing shampoo,” Moran recommends.

Highly treated hair may mask certain problems and make it difficult to see or feel what your hair can tell you about your health.
