Every scalp is different but general statistics do exist about our hair. We resumed them for you.
Knowing your hair and its growth cycle will allow you allow you to take better care of your hair. You should also know that how you should take care of it can change depending on its color.
THE HAIR’S STRUCTURE
It is composed by 95% of keratine, which is a fiber protein, and 5% of water. This structure allows the hair to absorb 30% of its own weight in water when healthy. It weighs between 5 and 200 g depending on its length and appearance and between 6,5 and 260 g when wet.
THE HAIR FOLLICLE
Our hair owes its growth to the hair follicles on our scalp. They number around 1000 per cm² for a newborn and 500 per cm² for an adult between 25 and 55 years old. Each of your hair follicles allow between 5 and 200 hair to grow in a lifetime.
The REDACTIV serums increase hair width and its density. They also fasten hair growth to a maximum of 47 more hair per cm².
Your hair grow permanently but the opposite is also true : they fall on a daily basis (due to the telogen phase). The balance between these two phenomenona is the reason your hair is what it is, and allows to find out easily when a loss of hair is too strong.
