I have cut out all processed foods, sodas and refined drinks, refined flour and refined sugar, and all of the bad things that i can think of! But I have noticed that after a got my haircut, (which supposedly took out all my split ends), i have gotten frizzy, and thick, weird and "ugly" hair. Some of my ends turn wavy and the tips turn thin and some are split.

I researched on tips to keep hair healthy, and foods to eat. Come to find out that I have ALWAYS ate the right foods and I NEVER use perms, dye or straighteners. Lastly, I hardly EVER, like once every two months, use the heat to curl my hair.

So, can someone tell me what's wrong?? Is it my diet?
P.S: I have waste length long straight-wavy hair and have always had "nice" hair

Hi Bugzy2013 -

You may be interested in this article, Gorgeous Hair at Any Age , it discusses how our hair can change as we age. I know, I don't like to hear this either. I have gone from straight, silky hair to wavy, thicker hair. My grey's are a different texture than my natural hair color.

Top 10 Foods for Hair offers tips for a healthy hair diet.

Also, please post your hair concerns on our Skin & Beauty Community for more response.
