COMPOSITION OF HAIR
Under a microscope a hair cuticle will look somewhat similar to the scales on a fish. These scales are normally six to ten layers deep on a typical hair follicle. Their job is to protect the cortex, which lies directly beneath this. The cortex traps and holds sebum, which is the oily substance, secreted by the sebaceous glands. Sebum in effect makes the hair waterproof and increases the slip resistance of the hair. The direction of the scales on the cortex also allows water to drain more easily from the scalp. Hair that is damaged from chemicals, wind, sun or harsh treatment is ofen more porous because of the loss of these scales. Once damaged, the hair’s water retention rate is increased. In addition, once these scales are lost the cortex can no longer protect itself with sebum therefore the brittleness factor is increased. This can lead to premature breakage and loss of hair.
The positive point to what we have been telling you about is that hair conditioners can eliminate most hair problems. Many conditioners employ sealants that can coat the hair shaft and thereby protect the cortex. Since the shaft is more penetrable when damaged, inversely, conditioning agents can be more readily absorbed. Many times chemically treated hair can actually look better than normal hair because of the superiority of these man-made ingredients. The caveat here is that undamaged hair as compared to damaged hair may experience a greater build-up from some of these excellent products. So beware. Regardless all conditioners and rinses do increase the slip factor which decreases breakage for all hair types.
HAIR CARE PRODUCT INGREDIENTS
What’s in hair care products sold in today’s marketplace makes for very stimulating conversation. The ingredients utilized range from the most basic elements to the more exotic botanicals. Theories on what is beneficial to the hair and the research behind it vary from manufacturer to manufacturer as much as the ingredients. Formulations are as bountiful as the products you view on the shelf. Remember though that price is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Many cheaper hair care products contain exactly the same ingredients as there more expensive rivals. The only true difference may be in the amount of cleansers used and the variations on the constituents employed. But the caveat here is that quite a few companies do manufacture products that are superior to others. It’s just how much you’re willing to pay for them and if you’re astute enough to know the difference. Problems you may have with your hair or scalp may also only be eliminated by the use of certain ingredients. As one example in the case of dandruff, seborrhea, and psoriasis.

So quite the opposite of consumer gurus that advocate using dish washing detergent to clean your hair we take just the opposite view. Many hair care products do exactly what they claim to do, just not the same for everybody. The ingredients can be very helpful as long as you obtain enough of them
All hair care products manufactured in the United States are required by federal law to list ingredients utilized in descending order of quantity on the packaging. It is of particular importance to know what some of these compounds are since many scalps may be sensitive to some chemical constituents. What’s good for one scalp may be completely antagonistic to another. The positive point though, in regard to allergic reactions, is that most sensitivities can be traced to the fragrance or coloring used in the product.
We will now list some of the more common ingredients found in hair care products so that that you can caution yourself if necessary. This knowledge base can also help you avoid paying too much for these toiletry items.
