When was the last time you really stopped to think about your hair? Not just to wash it or style it or toss it up because it’s in your face, but really think about it.
Human hair is pretty extraordinary.
Second only to bone marrow as the fastest-growing tissue, hair can be found on nearly every surface of the body, with the exception of our palms, the bottoms of our feet, and a few other places.
At any given time, most people have between 80,000 and 120,000 mature hairs on their heads. On a daily basis, the body is continually shedding and growing new hair. Hair can serve as a protective barrier for the skin from ultraviolet damage, as well as protection from the environment in areas including the eyes, ears, and nostrils. Hair also plays a role in regulating your body temperature.
And, like our skin, our hair changes with age.
As we get older, hair follicles produce less melanin, causing our hair to gradually lose its natural color and turn gray.
The rate at which our hair grows also begins to slow down, which may lead to thinning or balding.
Finally, hair can become brittle and damaged over time with repeated styling and product use.
Where does collagen fit into the picture?
Your hair is mostly made of keratin. Keratin is a key structural component of hair and the hair follicle.
Hydrolyzed collagen can provide us with some of the amino acids our body needs to support the healthy synthesis of the proteins in our hair.
However, because normal collagen production declines with age, getting additional collagen from dietary supplements may provide added support for our hair as we get older.*
