Get Educated: 5 Reasons You Need to Add Protein to Your Hair Regimen This Winter

Get Educated- 5 Reasons You Need To Add Protein To Your Natural Hair Regimen This Winter

Believe it or not, our hair is actually made of protein. Protein is essential for every organ in your body and just as essential for healthy hair. Each hair strand consists of keratin, small amounts of water and a binding agent, which holds the keratin and water together.

Our hairs are made of a follicle and shaft and the bulb at the base is the living part. The shaft that we see above the skin is dead and the hair shaft is what is made of keratin protein.

The average head has 100,000 to 150,000 hair follicles, and we can lose anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs a day. Your hair grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch every month so it seems that losing it would be some cause for concern. But what if you are losing massive amount of hair or even clumps of hair and have no idea what the culprit is? Hair loss is a scary thing and despite what many think, women make up 40% of hair loss sufferers.

There could be several reasons a person suffers from hair loss, from improper diet to over-processing, but despite what route is taken to create the problem, protein most definitely is a factor to reverse it and get your hair back to health and fullness.
