The Science behind Hair Growth

Now here’s a detailed insight on the science behind hair growth, the stages of hair growth and how multiple treatments are required to see permanent hair reduction. Let’s start with how the hair grows on our bodies. Hair growth begins under the skin in what is called a hair root, located in the follicle. Cells are grouped together in the root consisting of protein (Keratin) which creates the formation of the hair. Blood from blood vessels in the scalp then feeds the root, creating more cells and this process makes the hair grow. As the hair is pushed up through the skin, the hair no longer has active cells, however is still kept growing through tiny blood vessels at the root of the follicle.
