Each hair grows from one follicle and, again depending on your genetic makeup, your scalp can have between 90,000 and 150,000 follicles.Follicles are a mammalian skin organ and along with stem cells, they help produce and grow hair. Your hair begins to grow from the root in the bottom of the follicle which is made up of cells of protein.Blood from the blood vessels in your scalps feeds the root which creates more cells and makes hair grow. In this article, you will find tips that will both directly boost cells of protein and blood flow which should result in faster hair growth.
