Many of us have wondered what is our hair made of; we wonder if it is human hair, or just man made. It seems that all of our hair doesn’t really come from one source, and a lot of people think that all we have to do to keep our hair looking nice and healthy is to wash it as often as possible. I’ve learned though, that sometimes our hair doesn’t need washing as often as we think, and sometimes it needs to be washed more often. So, what is our hair made of then?

Our hair isn’t really made of anything special, at least not in the traditional sense. Everything is made of something, but hair is nothing more than a protein. Hair consists mainly of keratin (which makes it strong and shiny), collagen (which keeps it flexible and sturdy) and small amounts of other chemicals. If you start to loss it then at least you can cover the loss with theĀ  Scalp Micropigmentation from His Hair Clinic

When you wash your hair, you are really just rinsing off the dirt and grime that has been trapped in your hair follicles for a while. As long as this is happening though, your hair will be okay. If your hair becomes greasy or oily though, it may have been badly treated in the past. It’s probably a good idea to take a little bit of time to read up on how to care for your hair. If your hair is unhealthy, you can’t help but notice it.
