Hypothyroidism can wreak havoc on your hair, skin, and nails. It may cause things such as:
• Cold, pale and dry skin
• Carotenaemia—Causing a yellowish hue to the skin
• Brittle hair and sometime drastic hair loss
• Ridged and brittle nails that are hard to grow
• Dry skin is prone to develop dermatitis

Symptoms in your hair, skin, and nails are early signs of hypothyroidism. Thin, fragile hair and fingernails are one of the early signs of hypothyroidism. There are several things you can do to help undo the damage caused by hypothyroidism.
• Include protein in your diet—Protein helps your body produce strong hair and nails. Including it in your diet by eating meat, fish and eggs, will help make your hair thicker and fortify the roots. This will help prevent hair loss. Protein helps your body produce strong bones, hair and nails. Red meat will also give your body iron to help the appearance of your nails and keep them from breaking.
• Drink more water—Toxins in your body cause your nails to discolor. Water will help flush these toxins from your system.
• Consume vitamins and minerals—There are vitamins and minerals that are important to healthy hair and nails. You can take them in pill form or get them naturally through food. Here are a few of them and how they improve your hair and nails:
– B7 supports hair growth.
– Vitamin B manages the body’s stress and is known to enrich your hair’s natural coloring and reduce hair loss.
– B12 deficiency can cause nail dryness, darkness and extremely curved round nails.
