Hair, What is it?
Hair is part of your integumentary system just like your skin and nails. It consists of layers of dead Keratinized protein cells that grows through the epidermis from follicles deep within the dermis.

Did you Know that...

The average scalp contains 120 000 hair follicles.
Hair will normally grow  at a rate of 0.4 mm/day.
Hair has a  pH range of  4.5 to 5.5 (contributing factors include natural oils from scalp, perspiration, and hair products)

Keeping Your Hair Clean and Healthy.
Water is essential for a healthy scalp and hair. When washing your hair, try using soft water instead of hard water and a shampoo that has a pH of 7.
A combination of both of these will reduce a breeding ground for bacteria.

Making your own shampoo is even better because you are sure of the product content. Avoid shampoos that contain sodium lauryl, sodium laureth, propylene glycol. Your hair may thin due to stress, genetics, diets, medications, mechanical manipulation, and menopause.
