Longer Hair

Who doesn’t love to get a Longer Hair? But First, Let us identify the hair ( Structure of Hair )

Hair is made of a protein called keratin. It has a wide variety of Carbon, Nitrogen, Sulphur, Oxygen, and Hydrogen. Lighter hair has more Sulphur and Oxygen whereas darker hair has more Hydrogen and Carbon.

Hair can be divided into 2 main categories: They are,

  • Roots under the skin
  • Stems above the skin

Roots under the skin

Each hair grows in the follicle of the skin. The papilla at the bottom of the sheath provides blood and nerves whereas the hair growth takes place in the bulb which is over it. Tiny flesh known as epicranial is attached to this sheath. Fear or cold causes this flesh to shrink where the hair will stand straight. One or two oil flakes are attached to each of the follicle sheaths. These produce an oil named Sebum.

Stems above the Skin

There is no nerve involvement of the hair that is visible to the naked eye. Cutting, pruning, etc. will not damage the stems of the hair, but will not be renewed once the stems have decayed.

Hair can be further divided into three categories :

 Cuticle – Outer coveting layer

 Cortex – Middle layer

 Medulla – Inner layer

1.Cuticle

There are a number of transparent cuticle layers, such as roof tiles layered on a roof. There are about 9-10 layers in Asian hairs, and 5-7 cuticle layers in European hairs. The cuticle layer on the side of the hair growth to protect the cortex layer cannot be regenerated if it is injured.

2.Cortex

The cortex layer is the most essential part of about 75% to 90% of hair. Much like a lot of drinking tubes, these microbial tubes are joined together by a network of keratin fibers.

The shape, strength, thickness, strength, and color of a hair are derived from the cortex. The natural color of melanin is visible through the translucent cuticle. Melanin gives a black and brown color, while pheomelanin gives a red and yellow color. White hair, also known as kanitis, is a colorless hair. White hair is considered to be a blend of black and white hair, which is a colorless hair.

3.Medulla

This layer is of no use to us. The inner medulla is often found in thin hair.

Extra:

The most important part that should be protected in the hair tree is the cuticle layer.

When chemicals are used for the hair when it is permed, relaxed, rebonded, or colored, what happens to the hair is that the cuticle layer opens up and prepares the hair to suit the chemical used. ( using neutralizer helps to close the opened cuticles and keeps the hair protected with the new shape ) but the chemical causes damage to the hair cuticle.

A person who had used chemicals should use appropriate treatments repeatedly. By doing so, the hair can be protected.

But if left untreated, side effects such as hair breakage, loss of color, hair dryness and dandruff can be expected.

Keep the Hair Neat

To keep the hair neat, people do tremendous things. Out of these, the most commonly used method is by using hair gel. There are hair gel sachets in the market starting from a small amount. Hair cream was more popular years ago but now hair gel is used by many. When you are selecting a hair gel, make sure it suits your hair. How can you select the best hair gel which suits you?

Most of the hair gel is specifically designed for styling. These are very sticky where it helps to hold the hair in place. There are also gel varieties that let loose the hair. So you can think of the way you want to style your hair and select the hair gel.

What you should keep in mind is that when applying the gel, the hair should be a little wet. Dry your hair with a towel and let it be a little wet. Then you can easily apply the gel to your hair. Also, you should clean your hair at the end of the day by washing it. Going to sleep with the hair gel on will make the hair break, split, and to turn grey.

If your requirement is a style that is a relaxing and neat one, then you can try on hair mousse. This is more identical to a hair spray but very easy to apply.

Before the application shakes the bottle well. Mousse is quite expensive than hair gel. It is not necessary to wet the hair when applying hair mousse. It can be directly applied.

By using a mousse, you can get a neat and relaxed style that doesn’t stick together. Remember to clean the hair at the end of the day by using shampoo to get rid of the stickiness of the mousse.

Earlier we spoke about hair gel and hair mousse, where both use sticky substances. Therefore it’s essential to wash your hair properly after using them. Now we are going to look at something where it’s necessary to do so.

Hair wax is much expensive than hair gel and hair mousse but it is hair friendly. This wax should be applied in a small quantity. It is quite hard to style with wax but the wet look on the hair would last long. There won’t be any hair dryness just like that is caused by hair gel and mousse. It looks more as if you have applied a thick oil to your hair.

But make sure you don’t use wax excessively. It is not essential to wash the hair the next day. Many go home very late at night so they don’t prefer to take a bath very late at night. So wax is the best option for them. But once you have applied wax, it is necessary to clean the hair before the next application.

Whatever you apply on your hair, it shouldn’t touch the hair root as it may become an obstacle for the hair growth. Especially hair gel and mousse should be applied only on the upper part of the hair.

However, using none of these is a better idea. Using different types of products on the hair may cause obstructions for hair growth, which may be a reason why some people don’t use anything on their hair at all. But if you are always getting exposed to the sun, you better use some kind of hair oil, most suitably an oil containing Vitamin E. If you’re not using hair gel, mousse or wax, you can minimize the damages such as hair loss, loss of color and splitting caused by the sun by using an oil like this.
