What is Our Scalp Made Up of?

April 9, 2021 4:47 am


Your skin has three major layers, the epidermis, the dermis, and the medulla. When you think about it the reason that the skin is so important is that it is the layer that allows us to absorb the nutrients from our food, keeps our cells protected, and helps maintain our internal balance.

The next layer is the dermis, this layer of skin is the actual foundation of all the hair follicles and hair strands that make up our bodies. It is one of the largest organs the body has and communicates so much to our brain for environment interpretation. This is how important the skin is to your body.

Our skin is made up of proteins (such as collagen), which are the building blocks of our skin. Our hair is made up of keratin, which is the main protein in our hair. When the scalp becomes damaged or becomes dry and irritated it can affect the growth and the condition of your hair. In some extreme cases it can lead to hair loss and you might then want to consider Scalp Micropigmentation from a company such as His Hair Clinic that can help with the aesthetic look of hair loss. Many people have found that this gives them their confidence back and they worry less about the appearance of their thinning hair or receding hair lines.
