Yesterday, on the Dr. Oz show, he mentioned that the body needs at least 7 and a half hours of sleep to do its repair work. That got me into thinking about my sleep habits. I'm not a good sleeper. If I get 5 hours of sleep, I feel that is great. Although, I would love to get more than that, sometimes life comes in the way, and it doesn't happen. I decided to do some research as to the correlation between Sleep and Hair Health. Would getting more sleep improve my overall hair health?
I discovered that when the "body loses out on sleep, hair loss can occur" :
Since lack of sleep that cause stress, and we all know how stress that affect our health, and since our hair is attached to our body, indirectly, it will surely affect our hair. So, my plan *fingers crossed* is to get at least 7 hours of sleep. Last night, I did 8 hours of sleep... OH BOY!... I woke up feeling tired and quite sloggish. I couldn't even complete my normal 1 hr run this morning. I guess 8 hours is too much for me. I believe the main thing I want to focus on is not really Hair Growth, but overall good hair health.
What do you think? Has sleep impacted your hair health?
