Keeping a job is an important part of life for almost everyone, especially in adulthood. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s okay to trade your health for your job, something that can be reflected in different parts of our bodies. Let’s have a look at the ways in which your job could be affecting your hair’s health, so you have an idea of why your hair’s health is in the condition it’s in.
You Have Poor Work-Life Balance
Having a job should not take away your ability to do other things such as home-related issues. If you have no time to deal with issues at home and live a regular family life, find out if it’s because of your job. If it is, there’s a good chance that any hair-related issues will also be a result of your job. Either look for a way to work effectively while also enjoying your life outside of work and you may improve the health of your hair.
You May Find Yourself Eating Less Healthy Food
While working, it may become difficult to eat a healthy meal all the time. As such, you may find yourself snacking more and consuming foods that don’t have any real benefits for your body. You may also only be able to access takeout, which may be made from genetically modified food ingredients. These have been found to have a number of side effects when consumed for a long time. Some of these side effects are poor skin and hair health, so if you’ve noticed these in yourself, you may need to evaluate your meal options. Oilseed rape, soybean, cotton, and maize are four major biotech crops that account for 99% of the world’s GM crop area. If you can cook your own meals and carry them to work, you may be better able to eat healthily as you will prepare the food from healthy ingredients.
You Have an Extreme Workload
Having an extreme workload is another thing that can affect your hair’s health in a negative way. This is because you will likely develop sleeping issues due to the work you have to do and may not be able to sleep as long as you need to. This may lead to stress as well, something that’s a sure cause of poor hair health. If you work in a busy industry, you may not have enough time to relax. For instance, speech-language pathologists are expected to be employed at a rate of 29% more from 2020 to 2030, which is a faster rate than all other occupations on average. All the same, it’s important to avoid spreading yourself too thin at your work as your health will suffer for sure.
You Don’t Relate Well With Your Workmates
Poor relations with your workmates, supervisors, and bosses can also stress you as much as a heavy workload will, if not more. Whether they’re toxic and exhibit poor behavior or you simply don’t find it possible to cooperate with them, you may find it difficult to work around them. You may find that your hair is less healthy than it was before after working at that place for a while.
You Work Under Strict Working Codes
Your workplace may also have strict standards, or you may be in an occupation that calls for a rigorous routine to be maintained. All of these can compound the stress you feel. If you’re a model, you may also need to find a permanent hair removal solution because of your line of work. In 2019, 6.97 million Americans used professional waxing services four or more times within six months. Find a healthy and stress-free method of hair removal if you work in such an industry so you don’t destroy the state of your hair follicles while removing the hair you want to keep off.
All of these factors may contribute to poor hair health, so have a look at them. If it’s impossible to fix them, it may be time to find another job.
