How Hair Grows

Do you know what hair is made of? Dead cells...lots and lots of them.

Hair is composed of a protein called keratin. When it comes to the way that the hair is arranged, one can see by looking closely that it is arranged in three layers, an outer cuticle, middle cortex and central medulla.

These three layers constitute the way that the hair is set up on your head, and these layers might contribute in some small ways to the amount of hair loss that you might be seeing.

Hair grows from a follicle. This is the small hole, or area in your head where the hair pushes out of.

A Few Facts
The cortex is where the strength of hair is. The cortex is made up mainly of strong protein bonds. There are also two other bonds which is hydrogen and salt. When hair is wet it is more flexible because the salt and hydrogen bonds that provide 2/3rds the strength of hair are broken by water.

These are replaced when dry. This is how blow dried styles hold their shape. The third (the disulphide bond) is broken by chemicals and the sun. Many times, when people have hair loss, it might be because these follicles are plugged and new hairs have no way of getting to the surface. This is often part of the factors that contribute to hair loss as a whole.

If you are experiencing hair loss, you might want to consider doing something about your hair follicles. This is something that might not actually cause hair loss, but if you have thinning hair, even getting a few of the follicles unplugged and allowing new hairs to grow is something that you can do.

Even if you are going to lose your hair completely by the time you are a certain age, you might be able to delay this for awhile by taking the time to do something about your follicles.

There are several places where you can find shampoos and other things that will help unclog your follicles. If you can find things and can begin a treatment, you are going to be able to see that your hair might come in much more quickly and that you might have much more of it than you had though previously.

However, these treatments must be continued, so be sure that you are following directions to insure that you are doing everything you can to have as much hair as possible.

Remember that once you have started to use special shampoos which should help clean out your follicles, you are going to have to continue to use these shampoos because if you don’t, you are going to find the hair isn’t going to grow in as well as you’d like it to.

Remember that this is something you should keep in mind before you begin a hair re growth treatment.

How Hair Grows
Do you know what hair is made of? Dead cells...lots and lots of them. Hair is composed of a protein called keratin.

these follicles are plugged and new hairs have no way of getting to the surface. This is often part of the factors that contribute to hair loss as a whole.

Remember that this is something you should keep in mind before you begin a hair re growth treatment.

Most of these treatments you will actually have to keep doing for quite some time so if it is something that is important to you, you should begin them with the intent of keeping up with them.

There are three classifications of hair: fine, medium, and coarse. This is referring to the diameter (thickness) of each individual hair. The finer the hair the less cortex there is, so it is not as strong as what thick would be. If thick hair has been chemically treated this could mean that the finer hair may of course be stronger as chemicals permanently damage the disulphide bonds in the cortex.

Nutrition and Hair Loss
There are several key elements when it comes to hair loss. The majority of hair loss is something that you can do nothing about – it is simply something that is going to happen to you whether you want it to or not. When these things happen, they happen, and male pattern baldness is something that you can’t stop. However in most cases, and in the cases of some kinds of hair loss, nutrition can play a big role and can either prevent certain types of hair loss, or help you deal with hair loss that you can’t control. Getting good nutrition is always important, but if you are prone to hair loss, it is something that you might want to consider very carefully because it could be the deciding factor in how quickly you lose your hair, or how much hair you end up losing. The human body cannot function well without a good supply of food. Food is used for energy for all of the body, and it is also used for hair

growth. Eating the right kinds of foods allows your body to make the energy needed to keep your hair healthy and also to keep your from losing your hair. Since the majority of hair loss is not actually your hair falling out, but is instead the failure of your body to create new hair that is supposed to replace hairs as they naturally die and fall out, you should know that eating the right foods is one way of making sure that your body is healthy enough to keep making new hairs to replace the ones that you lost. Be sure that you are getting the right nutrition, because this is vital to new hair growth. In order to make sure you are getting the proper nutrition, and therefore that you are able to maintain healthy hair growth and great hair follicles, make sure that you check with a doctor or with other specialists to see if you can do anything else. Be sure that you are eating food that is good for you, food that is healthy, and that you are doing your best to get a balanced meal in three times every day. These things put together will help you to be sure that you are fully able to re grow any hair that your body is naturally going to lose. Of all of the things that you can do to keep yourself healthy, eating a good meal is the best option.

Understanding the Hair Growth Cycle
If you’re balding or worried about becoming bald, one of the very best prevention and treatment steps you can take is to learn. Knowledge is the key to dealing with your baldness! When you understand your hair and your balding, you can make better choices about how to proceed and you can quickly spot if your baldness is natural or if you may need to see a doctor. Learn all you can about your hair, including about a healthy growth cycle, so that you understand what is happening to your own body. The hair growth cycle is different in humans than it is in any other animal in the world. If you have pets or even if you don’t, you probably know that during certain seasons, their hair gets very thick and long, while during other seasons they shed uncontrollably. Animals do this biologically, even if they are indoors all of the time with no exposure to the actual change of seasons. Humans, on the other hand, do not shed in predictable patterns. Our hair is still part of a cycle, like the hair of animals, but each hair on our head is at a different stage of this cycle. Therefore, our hair is overall constantly shedding and growing at once. It is normal to use anywhere from 25 to 100 hairs every day and, in general, our hair will grow about 6 inches every year, although this may happen in spurts at times. There are three stages to hair growth: catagen, telogen, and anagen. The catagen stage lasts for up to three weeks and leads the hair

through a period of transition. The hair stops growing and the outer root shrinks up to attack to the root in the follicle. This forms what is known as a club hair. Next is the telogen stage. Your hair is prone to fall out during this stage, because the hair is at rest. Lastly, the hair transitions into the anagen stage. This is the active stage of the hair, when it grows rapidly. The anagen stage can last anywhere from two to six years, so if your hair seems to grow very slowly, you probably have a shorter anagen period. Baldness usually comes with a hair falls out in the telogen stage and then cannot grow back. This can happen for many reasons. For example, if your follicle is clogged, the hair cannot push through and the root dies. If your hair falls out, in most cases it will grow back, but if it doesn’t grow back and the root dies, it never will.

Hair Loss in Women
For most women, hair loss is not an issue. The majority of hair loss takes place in men, and so women don’t have to worry about it. However, some women do experience hair loss, in some of the same ways as men, and also in very drastically different ways than most men. In most women, hair loss is seen a different way and happens in different ways as well, than hair loss in men. There is no set pattern for a women’s androgenic hair loss. This is hair loss that is like male

pattern baldness, and it happens, like pattern baldness, in the majority of women who lose their hair. However, unlike the male pattern baldness, which does actually occur in a pattern, the women’s baldness does not. They can suffer from hair loss on all parts of their hair, and also in all parts of their bodies, just like men can, but it doesn’t happen in a set pattern, which makes it difficult to diagnosis in women. However, in women, baldness can occur for many different reasons. Most of the time, with women, their hair loss is seen simply in patches. Women can experience patch baldness for the same reasons as men, which might include reasons such as stress, not eating correctly, or pulling or tugging on their hair. However, unlike men, women have many more different hormonal changes that might also lead to their hair loss. These can include the hormonal changes from pregnancy and certain eating disorders. In most of the cases of hair loss in women, like the hair loss in men that either happens for reasons or due to illness, most of the women’s hair loss that happens for the above reasons will actually grow back. There are women who experience genetic thinning and baldness however, and unlike in men, this happens in no set pattern. This makes it sometimes difficult to discern whether a woman is losing her hair due to the above reasons, or if it is genetic. If it is a genetic hair loss, like that in men, it is something that a woman can do nothing about, besides try to treat it using the same things that men do to treat their own hair loss. It is usually going to be

something that they can’t fix, and there is not cure for pattern baldness, whether it is in a man or a woman.

What do we do wrong?
We all know that colours damage the hair. Semi Permanent colours don't do as much damage as the permanent but depending on the hair type it too can have more of a negative effect than desired. Any chemical service in the hair will permanently alter and damage the chemical bonding strength in the hair. Having two chemical services (Perm and colour) will give even more damage to the internal structure. Permanent straightening of any sort is a chemical service as well and should be noted that it is the same as if you had a colour or perm done in the affects on the hair. The not so obvious causes of hair damage: Blow Drying Blow drying seems like a harmless thing to do. Just think about a few things first 1) How often do you blow dry your hair? 2) What heat do you have your hair dryer on? 3) How long do you keep the hair dryer in one spot on your hair?

If you blow dry your hair daily, on high heat, and/or don't keep it moving this can cause mechanical damage to the hair. Brushes Brushing your hair is harmless unless it is done the wrong way. Everything has a right and wrong way to do things. Any strain put on the hair has the chance of causing breakage. When the hair is wet it is at one of its weakest moments. Put the last two together and you have even more chance of damage. Straightening Irons Straightening irons are hot and having them in one spot on the hair to long will cause it to burn and break. Putting Hair Up Putting your hair up is hard. (I am a woman so I sympathise.) Putting it up too tight or under to much strain will break the hair. Be gentle with it. Imagine if you have a chemical service in your hair as well as the above processes being done... Even more chance of breakage.

When two out of the three bonds that give hair strength are broken by water it will be more susceptible to breakage when wet. If you put finer hair together with a hot round brush blow drying the chance of breakage is high. Conditioning treatments and leave in treatments are important in patching and protecting hair from damage. Hair problems can occur genetically, physically, by mechanical and chemical means. Having only one can be bad enough but if you combine any of them the risk of damage is higher.

Daily Hair Care Tips and Advice

Use a shampoo that is pH balanced and that is formulated for your hair type. Conditioner should be nourishing but not heavy. Rinse with cool water for extra shine.

Regular shampooing is plays a important role. When you massage your scalp as you shampoo, it stimulates the oil glands to work more efficiently and brings natural oils into the hair,

Avoid excessive blow drying and air dry hair whenever possible. This will help prevent split ends and drying.

Never brush wet hair, which can lead to breakage; instead, use a wide tooth comb after you shampoo and save the brush for later. The tried-and-true "100 stokes a night" really is a good way to bring out the shine in your hair.

Don't use hot water when shampooing or rinsing your hair.

Henna soaked in water of used tea bags, coffee powder, amla powder and onion peels can make for a excellent conditioner giving your hair the much needed boost.

What you eat is reflected in the state of your hair. A hair-healthy diet includes a wide variety of foods, including lots of fruits and vegetables, and plenty of water. A daily multivitamin will ensure that your hair is getting all the nutritional support it needs. Stay away from processed foods, alcohol and cigarettes.

• • •

Switch shampoo brands often to avoid build up. Massage the scalp regularly to encourage oil production. Once a month, try a hot oil treatment which will lubricate dry scalp condition as well as moisturise brittle hair.

After swimming, wash your hair as soon as possible to remove chlorine residue.

For static electricity in the Winter, try running a fabric softener sheet through your hair for better control.

Use only mousses and hair gels without alcohol to avoid a drying affect.

Apply curd on your hair leave it for about half an hour and then wash it with shampoo. Massage your hair with warm coconut oil and apply the juice of 2 lemons, steam your hair and leave the oil on for about 2 hours. Shampoo with a mild shampoo. Repeat 2-3 times a week. Use as much vinegar as you can. pour it directly on your scalp. Rub around. Leave for 5 min. Rinse. Repeat if needed. (this usually works for only mild dandruff.) Soak 2 tablespoons fenugreek seeds in water overnight. In the morning grind into a fine paste. Apply all over scalp and leave for ½ an hour. Wash with mild shampoo.

Dry Hair Shampoo
In a blender, combine 1 ounce olive oil, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. Use as regular shampoo.

Hair Setting Lotion
• Dissolve 1 teaspoon sugar in 1 cup warm water and apply to damp hair before styling.

Conditioners
Mayonnaise is a great conditioner for dry hair. Depending on the length of your hair, apply approx. 1/2 cup of mayonnaise to your dry hair. Work into hair really well and then cover your hair with a plastic bag, allowing to set for about 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and then shampoo as usual. • To help a flaky scalp, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in the microwave (make sure it’s not too hot!) and then gently apply to scalp with cotton balls. Let set for at least an hour and then shampoo as usual.

Homemade Recipes For Dry Hair
Many struggle with dry, hard to manage hair. This can be cause naturally by genetics or improper care such as using harsh chemicals (relaxers, color) or by hot styling products (blow dryer, heat iron). The good news is that some beauty recipes can help restore or re-hydrate your hair leaving it softer and shinier than ever. • Mix 1 tablespoon Honey and any type of vegetable oil. Distribute mixture evenly all over the hair. • Coat dry hair with mayonnaise, once finished cover with a plastic

shower cap and leave on for 10-20 minutes. • Apply olive oil all over your hair. Cover with a plastic bag and let it stay for 20 minutes. For extra conditioning take a warm shower while waiting. The heat will help the oil work to its maximum potential. • Beat one egg, add 3 tablespoons of water and apply to scalp and hair. This applies to all recipes: Once you are done waiting for the natural ingredients to work their magic wash, rinse, and style hair as usual.

Internal Health-How can it help?
How does hair grow? Because of the necessity of nutrients and hormones to provide the necessary function of producing adequate and healthy hair it is important to ensure the areas that provide those things are also functioning well. If there is an imbalance, for example thyroid function, low iron, low zinc, diabetes, low calcium, copper, hormonal etc, you will find it can affect the hair adversely. Diffuse hair loss is the most common. Proper intake of vitamins and minerals as well as making sure that the gut is able to absorb those things is very important. All vitamins and minerals have influence on hormone functions such as iron with the thyroid and chromium with effective insulin function. There are many other vitamins, minerals and hormones that affect the condition or strength of hair.

Vitamins for Hair Growth
Vitamins are an essential part of a hair growth and maintenance regime and should not be overlooked. Especially in people whose dietary intake of vitamins might be lacking, supplementation can offer even greater benefits than specialised shampoos and conditioners. Hair follicles are living cells, and as such rely on vitamins for their optimal function. Even though the hair strands are not alive, the cell that produces them is! Particular vitamins to be looked out for are niacin, biotin, iron and choline. All four of these are recognised as essential for optimal follicle health and functionality. A good balance of amino acids is also important as hair is made of protein, from which amino acids are derived. So if your diet is lacking in protein, an amino acid supplement is a good idea to give your hair follicles the nutrients it needs to produce the hair strands. There are numerous hair-growth promoting vitamin formulations available on the market. As always, do your research before you decide which one to go for.

Alternatively you can formulate your own using the different vitamin products available from most health-food stores.

If your diet is balanced, you may not need to take a vitamin supplement, however if you eat a specialised diet (such as vegetarian) you are likely to be deficient in one or more essential vitamins. So look for a comprehensively formulated supplement which can provide back the vitamins that are missing from your diet and maximise your hair growth potential. Vitamins can literally turn your health around, not just in terms of hair re-growth but with your entire body. You will notice health changes of the positive kind after you are taking regular vitamin supplements. This is a nice by-product of using vitamins for hair growth. I hope this report has been helpful to you in your Hair Care!
