We all want healthy, beautiful, thick shiny hair! But did you know that what you eat can play a big role to how your hair looks and feels? Simple dietary changes can prevent distressing hair loss and thinning.Artistic Director and Careologist Elaine says “Just like our skin our hair is an outward sign of how healthy we are on the inside and by adding some of the following foods can help with hair health and growth”. She says that hair loss can be down to hormonal changes, a medical condition, stress or nutritional deficiencies and by adding some of the right foods and eating a balanced diet can help with the issue. MangoJust two medium slices of mango per day can strengthen hair tissue and promotes its growth.Soy BeansFoods derived from Soy, such as edamame beans are said to inhibit the formation of the DHT hormone which is believed to contribute to hair loss. EggsFull of protein, eggs help to boost collagen production, reducing hair breakage, the addition of eggs in the diet up to 4 times per week and help considerably.KelpIron and amino acid L-lysine found in kelp directly affect hair growth. Both are richly found in Kelp and a deficiency in both can contribute to hair loss.Flaxseeds High in Omega-3, flaxseed helps to nourish hair preventing it from getting dry and brittle. Adding 1 teaspoon per day can significantly help.Pumpkin SeedsProtein rich seeds provide zinc, supporting cellular reproduction and enhances immunity, leading to hair growth.Berries Naturally high in collagen-boosting vitamin c, berries aid absorption of iron. Vitamin C boosts scalp circulation, while its anti-oxidant action protects follicles from free radical damage.AvocadoCreamy avocados supply vitamin E, which increases oxygen uptake and improves circulation to the scalp to promote healthy hair growth.Leafy GreensLeafy greens promote the production of keratin a protein that strengthens hair follicles.For more information on Patrick Gildea Hairdressing multi-award winning salon and Irish Hairdressing Federation Icon see www.patrickgildea.ie, follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/patrickgildeahairdressing or on Instagram www.instagram.com/patrick.gildea.hair/.

The migration of the great snipe Gallinago media was previously poorly known. Three tracks in 2010 suggested a remarkable migratory behaviour including long and fast overland non-stop flights (Klaassen et al. 2011). Here we present the migration pattern of Swedish male great snipes, based on 19 individuals tracked by light-level geolocators in four different years. About half of the birds made stopover(s) in northern Europe in early autumn. They left the breeding area 15 days earlier than those which flew directly to sub-Sahara, suggesting two distinct autumn migration strategies. The autumn trans-Sahara flights were on average 5500 km long, lasted 64 h, and were flown at ground speeds of 25 m s-1 (90 km h-1). The arrival in the Sahel zone of West Africa coincided with the wet season there, and the birds stayed for on average three weeks. The birds arrived at their wintering grounds around the lower stretches of the Congo River in late September and stayed for seven months. In spring the great snipes made trans-Sahara flights of similar length and speed as in autumn, but the remaining migration through eastern Europe was notably slow. All birds returned to the breeding grounds within one week around mid-May. The annual cycle was characterized by relaxed temporal synchronization between individuals during the autumn-winter period, with maximum variation at the arrival in the wintering area. Synchronization increased in spring, with minimum time variation at arrival in the breeding area. This suggests that arrival date in the breeding area is under strong stabilizing selection, while there is room for more flexibility in autumn and arrival to the wintering area. The details of the fast non-stop flights remain to be elucidated, but the identification of the main stopover and wintering areas is important for future conservation work on this red-listed bird species.
