However, does the function of hair as a crown only apply to women? So, what about men? Men, especially those aged 35 and over, are also prone to experiencing severe hair loss to the point of becoming bald.

Hair Facts

In general, hair is one part of the human body and the area where hair grows the most is the head area. Human hair has some unique facts that many people may not know. For example, hair is composed of 50% carbon, 23% oxygen, 17% nitrogen, 6% hydrogen and 4% sulfur. In addition, 90% of hair's weight is affected by keratin, a type of protein with a helix structure linked to disulfide bonds . Human hair also grows at around 0.3 mm per day or up to 4 cm per year.

Maybe many people don't know that hair has a life cycle. The first phase is the anagen or growth phase. In this phase, the hair follicles will experience constant or steady growth. The next phase is the catagen phase or more commonly known as the transition phase. The last is the telogen phase or the resting stage, where in this phase, hair will fall out or be detached from the scalp.

Even so, you don't need to be afraid that your hair will thin drastically due to complete hair loss. This is because each hair follicle goes through its growth cycle at a different time so that the hair does not fall out at the same time.
