Weak, brittle hair is more vulnerable to breakage than strong hair. When your protein intake is too low (which is true for many people) or you have been deficient in Vitamin A, B, or C for collagen production for a long period of time, it shows up in the condition of your hair. In fact, your physical appearance tells a lot of what is going inside your body. If your hair is straw-like now, you have got to cut it and start fresh from the beginning. You don’t have to settle for dry, unattractive hair.
