Hair

Hair is an outgrowth found on mammals, including humans. It’s an important part of the human body and is deeply connected to a person psychologically too. Its functions range from:

● Protecting the skin from external factors like dust and UV rays.

● Production of sebum to moisturise itself.

● Impacts social interactions.

● Regulating the body’s temperature.

It’s a derivative of the uppermost layer of the skin (epidermis) and consists of three distinct parts, namely the bulb, follicle and shaft. Each hair strand is made up of proteins (keratin), calcium, zinc and iron, while it firmly anchors itself into the skin. At the base of each strand is the hair bulb which consists of living cells which keep multiplying for the growth of the hair shaft. Blood vessels deliver nutrients and hormones to cells enclosed in the hair bulb, which bring changes in the growth and structure of the shaft throughout a person’s life cycle. A hair follicle has an intermittent cycle of growth and rest period called the hair cycle. This cycle depends on various factors like age and nutritional habits. This cycle has three stages, explained as follows:

1. Anagen: This is the phase of growth. Most of our hair strands are in this phase of continuous growth and continue to be in it for several years.

2. Catagen: It’s the phase which changes the structure of the hair. Over a couple of weeks, hair growth slows and the follicles shrink.

3. Telogen: During this phase, the hair follicles enter a resting phase. The old strands get detached from the roots and fall. Then, after months, new strands emerge out which mark the beginning of a new growth phase.

Hypothesis

Hair serves an ornamental function in the body but, even that is something we cannot do without. Our hair becomes a part of our identity which we do not wish to part with. The obstructions that we face in keeping our hair intact are in the form of ailments like Tinea Capitis, Dandruff, Telogen effluvium and Premature greying of hair. An explanation of these is as follows:

Tinea Capitis: This is the medical term for ringworm, which is a fungal infection of the scalp. It results in round patches of rashes on the skin, with the hair strands from that area falling out. This disease is contagious and can be caught from infected people, pets or combs and pillows. Children are more vulnerable to this. Main symptoms are rashes on the scalp followed with constant itching. If left ignored, this complication can lead to kerion, which is a lump filled with pus. Kerion can cause scarring of the scalp and permanent hair loss.

Dandruff: Dandruff is also known as seborrhoea and is a common non-contagious ailment occurring on those areas of the scalp, which are rich in oil glands. The scalp becomes itchy and filled with white dry flakes, while redness can be noticed in some areas. Men are more prone to this and start facing this problem from puberty, while it peaks in their 40s. Dandruff gets worse due to stress, winter season and improper scalp-hygiene.

Telogen effluvium: It is a form of temporary hair loss that happens due to immense stress from a traumatic event, high fever or another illness. A person suffering from chronic Telogen effluvium would be experiencing continuous hair fall for a period of 6 months or more. The person shall not lose all of his/her hair but it would become noticeably thinner in quantity than before. The internal reason is the disruption in the hair growth cycle, as most of the hair on the scalp enters the telogen or resting phase and very minimal hair enters the anagen or growing phase. A poor diet and certain medication ads to the acceleration of this condition. Fortunately, this disorder is reversible.

Premature Greying: Hair does start greying with increasing age but some people start facing it in their early 20s too. A varying number of underlying reasons are behind this. The list of these deterrents starts with deficiency of vitamins like D, E, B-6 or biotin, genetics or ethnicity, melanin deficiency, stress, smoking and chemical hair dyes. Medical treatments like Chemotherapy are also known to cause hair fall, but that happens all over the body and is temporary. Lifestyle patterns like excessive smoking, unhealthy diet, obesity and intake of steroids actively contribute to more hair loss.
