About the structure of hair
Hairs are thin fibres made mainly of a protein called collagen. The hair sticks out from hollow tubes, hair follickles, originating in the fat layer just under the skin and going through all structures of the skin out to the surface.
Lengthwise the hair is composed of three sections. The root is the deepest laying section. This section contains living epitelial cells that constantly divide so that new cells are pushed upwards. Also a small blood vessel go in and out under the middle of the root that futnishes the deep part of the hair with nutrient and oxygen. At the under-side the epitelial cell layer is folded up as a pocket and the blood vessels and also nerve fibres enter up into thet pocket.
This pocket with its content is called the dermal papilla. This is the main cell producing part of the hair. All cells that divide and produce the hair originate from cells originally produced in the dermal papilla.
As the new cells are pushed outwards they are gradually filled with keratin, dries out and die.
The next section is a thickened portion called the bulb laying within the skin. It is in this section that the cells are transformed from living cells to dry elements mostly containing keratine.
The longtest section is the visible hair that sticks out from the skin, composed entirely of dead cells made mostly of keratine.
In cross-section, the hair is composed of several layers with cells arranged in different fashion and with somewhat different chemical composition. The innermost layer is the medulla. This layer can be lacking and instead there can by a hollow space in th emiddle of the hair.
The next layer is the cortex. This layer is a compact and strong structure where also the color elements recide. Then there are several layers of various composition and geometrical structure. The outermost layer is the cuticle that serves to protect the hair.
The molecules of the protein keratin are lang fibres. These fibres are cross-linked with di-sulfide-bridges. This is sulphur atomes from two fibres making bonds with each other. This cross-linking makes the hair strong, and also define the appearence of the heir, for example if the hair is curly or not. Some people have somewhat flattened hair. Hair of this type also tend to be curly.
The hair follicle is a pucket made or epitelial cells that goes downeard from the skin epidermis, through the connective tissue layer of the skin- the dermis and ends just under the dermis in the fatty area - sub-dermis. The hair follicle is actually continuous with the epidermis and contain epitelial cells of the same type. The substance keratine is actually the same substance that covers the outer skin surface.
Around the hair follickles there are small glands that produce a blending of vaxes and oils, sebum, that is emptied into the hair follicles and that lubricates the hairs and the skin. These glands are small sacks with walls composed of epitelial cells. Inside the walls are glandular cells that constantly divide and are producing sebum. The new cells are gradually filled with sebum at at last they burst and empty the sebum into the hair follicle.
Each hair have a growth cycle. In the beginning only the dermal papilla and the pupper part of the hair follicle are present.
In the anagen phace, cells are produced from the dermal papilla. The full structure of the hair follicle is produced and the hair grows out.
In the catagen phase the middle and most of the lower part of the hair follicle is destroyed and the dermal papilla is left without connection to the heir.
In the telogen phase all activity in the hair and dermal papilla is resting, and eventually the hair falls out.
The color of the hair is produced by cells in the hair follicles, the melanocytes. There are mainly three types of color substances: The red substance pheomelanin, the black eumelanin and the brown eumelanin. The amount and mixture of these substances determine the hair color.
There are mainly two genes that dentermine hair colors. One of the genes has a variant that command production of the red color pheomelanine and one thet do not command such production. The last one is dominant so that both genes in each gene pair have to be of the ffirst type for a person to have much red substance in the heir.
The other gene determine if the person shall produce much dark pigment, eumelanine, or only little of it. The variant that command much dark pigment is dominant.

The mechanisms of common hair loss
The common form of hair loss, as seen by many men, and to some women to a less extend is caused by hereditary susceptibility towords an altered form of the male hormone, testosterone, called dihydrotestosterone, and perhaps also an excess production of rhese hormones that is also genetically inherited.
In persons with a genetical predisposition, the testosteron from the blood is converted to dihydrotestosterone in the hair follicles by an ezyme called 5-alpha reductase. This hormone variant will slow down the cell divisions and cell growth in the follicles, so that they shrink and produce steadily shorter, thinner and less pigmented hair. Some follicles may evan disappear.
Observations aslo suggest that persons producing much oily substance, sebum, from the sebaceous glands, often have bolding. These glands is situated high up in the hair follicles, and the oily substance smears the hairs. The sebum contains much testosterone, and much of this may be converted to dehydrotestosterone. There are also observations suggesting that excess sebum may convert to a vaxy substance that clogges up the follicles, making it difficult for the hair to grow. Excess production of sebum seems further to be associated with a habit of eating much fat from animal food.
Every person sheds some hair every day, as can be seen when one washes the hair and finds a few hairs left in the basin afterwards. This hair will in time be replaced from the hair root with new hair that normally is as strong as the hair shed. The hair root is not shed. The small white bobble on the end of the hair is not the hair root, but is made up of degenerated cells from within the hair root and is called the club. If it were possible for a hair to be pulled from the scalp bringing a hair root with it, then the scalp would actually bleed.
If dihydrotestosterone has been produced the new hair comming out will gradually be thinner and shorter. This means that the new hair growing through will be finer. When this new fine hair is later shed the Dihydrotestosterone again miniaturises the follicle and hair root even further and hence the next hair will be finer still. This process will continue until the hair is so fine that it may as well not be there at all and if this happens over an area, then the man will obviously thin over that area and hence baldness occurs.
You can usually tell when a person is thinning on the front hair line by feeling the thickness of the hair and comparing it with the hair at the back of the head. It takes a bit of skill but eventually you should be able to tell just by touch when the hair is starting to thin.
Patterns of hair loss
The pattern of hair loss differs between men and women.
1. MALE PATTERN BALDING (MPB)
Signs and Symptoms
· Receding hairline
· Moderate to extensive loss of hair, especially on the crown
MPB is the hair loss most frequently encountered. It usually starts with the hair at the temples, which gradually recedes to form an "M" shape. You also may find your hair is finer and does not grow as long as it once did. The hair on the crown of your head begins to thin out and eventually at the top points of the "M" meet the thinned spot on your crown. Over time, you are left with a horse-shoe pattern of hair around the sides of your head. Any remaining hair in the balding areas usually manifests some miniaturization - it is thinner and grows at a below-normal rate, changing from long, thick, coarse, pigmented hair into fine, unpigmented sprouts.
2. FEMALE PATTERN BALDING (FPB)
Signs and Symptoms
· General thinning of hair all over the head
· Moderate loss of hair on the crown or at hairline
Female pattern baldness usually begins about age 30, becomes noticeable around age 40, and may be even more noticeable after menopause. Female hair loss is usually an overall thinning -- two hairs where five used to be--rather than a bald area on top of the head, though women may have a receding hairline, too. It's thought that about 20 million American women have such hair loss.
