How does hair grow?
  • Hair grows from a root at the bottom of a follicle under the skin.
  • The blood in the scalp goes to the follicle and supplies oxygen and nutrients to the hair root.
  • As the hair grows, it will push through the skin and pass the oil gland.
What causes hair growth?
  • Although genetics and nutrition plays an important role for hair growth and cycle a lot depends on the chemicals hair is exposed to.

What are the stages of hair growth?

People are born with around 5 million hair follicles. Around 100,000 of these follicles are on the scalp.

  • Each follicle contains a hair root, which is made of cells of protein.
  • As blood circulates around the body, it delivers oxygen and nutrients to the protein cells, which need to multiply.
  • As the protein cells multiply, it builds hair, which pushes up through the skin.
  • By the time the hair is long enough to come through the skin, it is dead. New hair grows underneath it which pushes the dead hair out.
  • Not all hair follicles are in action at the same time.
What causes straight or curly hair?
  • People with oval shaped follicles have very curly hair, while those with round follicles have straight hair.

What causes unhealthy and dirty scalp?
  • Although pollution, stress and unhealthy eating habits lead to poor scalp health, the major contributor is buildup of chemicals/products around the hair follicles, caused by the over use of shampoos, sprays, conditioners and etc.

  • Daily washing of hair can strip the hair and scalp of natural oils leading to scalp itchiness/dryness, hair breakage and eventually hair loss.
  • Infrequent hair wash allows harmful buildup of chemicals, products and excessive oils around hair follicles which stops hair growth and new hair.
