Practical Use: Hair

Hair is a string-like structure that is composed of dead cells. The cells are arranged in a series of overlapping layers, and each hair is surrounded by a thin layer of skin called the hair follicle. The follicle is responsible for growing the hair and providing it with nutrients. Hair can be found on almost all body parts, except the palms of the hand and the soles of the feet. While the function of hair varies depending on its location, it generally serves to protect the skin from damage and regulate body temperature. Our hair can begin to thin and break more easily as we age. While there are many products on the market that claim to help with hair loss, few have been proven to be effective. One potential treatment that is gaining attention is crystal therapy. Crystal therapy is based on the idea that different crystals can emit subtle vibrations that can promote healing in the body.
