Dull or limp hair

Have you changed something in your diet lately? If you are experiencing dull or limp hair, it's likely a result of your body not getting enough nutrients. You hair needs sufficient protein, iron, omega-3 fatty acids and zinc in order to be healthy, so a crash diet can deprive it of this.

"Very low-calorie diets are often lacking in sufficient nutrients and can stunt hair growth or leave hair dull and limp. If the nutritional deficiency is big enough — like for someone with an eating disorder — hair can fall out," according to WebMD.

Dandruff

No this is not an ad for Head and Shoulders, but more of a sign that if you have persistent dandruff, you could have a skin condition you should have checked out.

If you experience yellow greasy flakes of dandruff it could be a sign of seborrheic dermatitis, an inflammatory skin condition that is also quite itchy.

You may also notice patches in your brows, beard and other areas of your body, which could be linked to more serious conditions like Parkinson's and HIV.

If you have concerns about your health you should talk to your doctor.
