Too acidic a diet and hair loss

Nowadays, our diet tends to favour acidic substances to the detriment of basic (alkaline) substances. This imbalance can have a negative influence on the health of our hair, sometimes even leading to hair loss. If your hair mass tends to decrease, a diet geared towards acid-base balance will help to stimulate your hair's vital functions.
