We are born with around five million hair follicles covering most of our body. Yet it’s the roughly 100,000 hair follicles covering our scalps that society has focused on through millennia. The way we wear and style our hair is a personal and cultural statement. So how do we keep those locks luscious through our entire life?
While everyone is different, on average hair grows roughly one-half an inch a month. Hair begins growing from the hair root, which is made up of protein cells. Blood circulates and delivers oxygen and nutrients to the protein cells which allows them to multiply. As protein cells build hair, the hair is pushed out through the skin, passing the sebaceous gland in the process which lubricates the hair strand with the oil it needs to stay soft and shiny.
There are many factors that influence how quickly hair grows – primarily genetics, gender, age and nutrition. Nutrition can be especially important (and something we have a bit of control over!) because healthy hair needs protein and healthy fats to grow and stay shiny and voluminous. Be sure to look for foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin A and C, B-12, iron and zinc to help keep hair strong and in good condition.
