Human hair – either too much or too little – is an important social factor in our society. Millions of people suffer from early hair loss (alopecia) and more millions, often women, suffer from unwanted hair growth (hirsutism). Presently there is no real effective and safe treatments available that are suitable for both men and women.
Human hair is built by keratin. It’s basically the same protein which builds our nails and skin. The hair is situated under the surface skin – in the follicle. The follicle follows a pattern of growth, rest and regrowth.
