About your hair

Hair is made up of a very simple structure; it is made up of the tough protein keratin. Keratin forms the strength of your hair, nails, and the outer layer of our skin.

Keratin is a large molecule that is made up of smaller units, these are called amino acids and they join together to form a chain.

Your hair is made up of different layers and structures; although the structure is simple these different layers and structures result in different people have different types of hair.

Hair growth

Different types of hair will need to be treated differently and it is important to understand exactly what your hair needs to keep it in the best possible condition.

The hair growth cycle works in the same way for everyone, however, different factors can change the rate in which your hair grows and how healthy it is. Leading a healthy lifestyle and reducing stress can help with your hair growth cycle.

It is important to understand the hair growth cycle, as this will help you identify problems that you could encounter with your hair.

Hair loss

There is no single cause of hair loss and there are many different factors that are associated with excessive hair loss. These different factors can cause different types of hair loss.

Some types of hair loss, such as stress related hair loss are not permanent and your hair will begin to resume its normal growth cycle, with no treatment needed. Other types of hair loss, such as hormonal hair loss are permanent; however, there are treatments that can help with your hair loss.

It is very important to understand your hair and its growth cycle and structure as this could help you prevent hair loss in the future.
