The pH Value of Hair Care

( — January 31, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — Long or short, curly or straight, red head or blonde, everyone has their preferences but it can be agreed that hair should always be healthy. While buying the most expensive shampoos and the trendiest herbal extract products is the most common way to address hair care issues, it’s not always the most effective in the long run. Caring for hair is a job best done from the inside out. 

“The alkalinity of human blood tends around 7.4 (average change 7.38 to 7.42) hence experts advise against consumption of foods that can increase too significantly the acidity level of the body, scalp and therefore of the blood,” explains Norgil Capillary Expertise in Canada. “A pH level below 6.5 therefore leads to dandruff and itchy scalp as well as a risk of hair loss.” 

When the overall body pH is too acidic, it compromises many areas, hair and scalp health are among the first regions to feel the squeeze. Follicles slow down strand production and natural oils that should coat the shaft of hairs aren’t secreted in the needed volumes when the body’s pH isn’t balanced. Lifestyle and diet planning are important to maintaining good health, particularly a balance of vitamins, proteins, carbs and minerals such as zinc and iron are required to keep hair and scalp thriving. 

“There are between 100,000 and 350,000 hair follicles on the human scalp,” informs BBC GoodFood. “Each follicle grows its hair for an average of 1000 days (three years) and then rests for a period of around 100 days (three months) before being shed and a new hair begins to grow. This pattern of active growth followed by the resting period varies significantly from person to person and is influenced by age, diet and our state of health.” 

How one chooses to eat will either help or hinder the internal pH levels of every organ, from skin to lungs to heart. Humans are truly a reflection of what they eat and the quality of one’s hair is a direct result of how well, or how not so well, the body is doing overall. Too much acid can lead to premature aging and hair loss if balance is not restored, so it’s best to know one’s body pH state to tackle whatever issues there may be head on and fast.
