Dermatologist Offers Top Tips for Maintaining a Lifetime of Healthy Hair

NEW YORK, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- For most people, and especially women, hair is their crowning glory that defines a significant part of their appearance and personal style. Yet, despite its delicate composition, hair is routinely subjected to significant damage from styling products, hair dyes, straightening or waving procedures and even sun exposure.

Hair that is not getting enough nutrition from the foods we eat doesn't grow well and it won't have that radiant, healthy glow."
