From there it pushes out of a tiny opening in your skin called a follicle. The number of hair follicles in the scalp is fixed somewhere between 90,000 and 150,000, and each one is equipped with sebaceous gland sacs that pump lubricant to your hair. Capillaries contained in the papilla nourish your hair by linking your body's blood supply to each growing hair shaft. When they are stimulated by androgen (sex) hormones, especially the male hormone testosterone, follicle cells convert vital amino acids from your body into keratin (the tough waterproof protein that forms each hair strand as it emerges from the follicle). Fifty Years In Developing Beauty Products Figaro was incorporated in 1947, and was one of the first companies to recognise that dietary deficiencies may be responsible for poor hair and scalp conditions. Over the last 50 years Figaro have been dedicated to developing a special range of quality beauty products for your hair. Achieve Hair Care Naturally Healthy hair has vibrant shine, lots of body and responds better to styling. Whether your hair is long or short, straight and sleek or wavy, everybody wants healthy shiny hair that's easy to manage. That's why Figaro created a special Hair Care Program to suit all hair types. The program contains an oral therapeutic product to nourish your hair from the inside, plus three topical hair beauty products, to help you achieve healthy hair from the outside. SLS Free It is important that Caruso's Hair Food Shampoo and Caruso's Hair Food Conditioner are Sodium Laurel Sulphate FREE. There is a lot of evidence to suggest that SLS is very harmful to humans. For example SLS may cause skin irritation and inflammation, hardening of the skin, contact dermatitis, transdermal water loss and change in skin colour, just to name a few. Clinical studies advise that use of SLS should be avoided as it is a chemical irritant. Directions Massage a small amount of Caruso's Hair Food Conditioner thoroughly through your hair. Using your fingertips, gently massage conditioner into scalp (don't rub) for a deep treatment effect and then rinse. Conditioning Your Hair Quality conditioners are more important today to correct damage done to your hair by notorious hair destroyers such as - over-perming, excess use of curling irons, blow dryers, pollution in the air and water, and excessive heating caused by long exposure to the sun. A good conditioner will leave your hair looking fuller and more alive.
