Is my hair anorexic? “When did my hair turn into the Chia Pet !?” Ok, sure. This may be a slightly exaggerated version of a common complaint I hear from my clients but, honestly, it’s a pretty good visual description. Yes? So many of my clients sit down in my chair and ask the same question, “Why doesn’t my hair look as good as it did before _______?” The scary part of this question is that the “before” can be anything! Before the summer began? Before I went on that diet? Before I had my kids? Before... before… before. Most people take healthy hair for granted until it turns into a Chia Pet. The health of our hair is no different than the health of our bodies or the health of our skin. Unhealthy hair can happen to anyone, even celebrities! Hair is damaged by the sun, our diets, chronic use of cheap chemicals, and even stress.
