Other than regular washing and treatment, if you think deeply, our hair is an interesting concept. You may know how to style it or wash it, but there’s a lot of other stuff going on up there that we rarely think about.

Here are some amazing hair facts may just blow your mind:

  • Black is the most general hair color in the world. Color red exists only about 1 percent of the world’s population and is the rarest. With only 2 percent of the population, Blonde hair comes in a close second.
  • Except for the palms of your hands, the soles of your feet, and on your lip, Hair can grow just about anywhere on the body.
  • When wet, our hair becomes so elastic that it can expand by up to 30% of its original length.
  • We, on a daily basis, shed between 40 and 150 strands of hair a day.
  • The average time a woman spends is 1 hour and 53 minutes a week to wash, dry and style her hair.
  • Cutting your hair does not affect its growth, but it does help to avoid split ends, which gives your hair the appearance of not growing.
  • Hair is mostly made up of keratin, which is also found on the outer layer of our nails and skin.
  • The outermost layer of hair is called the cuticle which is made up of overlapping scale-like segments, and it protects the inside layers of hair. The segments of the cuticle are usually open on dry or damaged hair.
  • It takes about 7 years to grow your hair to your waist, and 3 years to grow it to your shoulders.
  • Hair was used as jewelry, in the Victorian Era. People had pendants, brooches and watch made from the hair of lost loved ones as a stylish way of paying tribute.
  • A strand of hair of the same diameter is actually stronger than a copper wire.
  • The average person has 100,000 - 150,000 strands of hair on their heads.
  • There is entirely no difference between male and female hair in terms of growth structure and cycle.
  • Our hair is continuously growing and has a lifespan of around 5 years. 90% of our hair is growing at any given time.
  • By the time we are just five months old in the womb, all of the hair follicles in the human body are formed.
  • Hair is mostly made up of keratin, the same substance that makes up most of horses, mane, hooves, and tail.
  • All hair is dead, except the hair that’s still inside the epidermis of your scalp.
  • Hair is one of the most commonly used types of forensic evidence as it contains information about everything that has ever been in your bloodstream, including drugs.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.

There was a lot of care and attention displayed by their staff in handling my hair fall issue. Similarly, the receptionists are both friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh.
