What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?
Hyaluronic Acid is a special mucopolysaccharide occurring naturally throughout the human body. One of the most heavily researched substances today, HA has the unique ability to bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be used in skin-care products as an excellent moisturizer. Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most hydrophilic (water-loving) molecules in nature and can be described as "nature’s moisturizer".
Hyaluronic Acid in Scalp Tissue and Hair Follicles
Although Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can be found naturally in most every cell in the body, it is found in the greatest concentrations in the skin tissue. Almost 50% of the bodies HA is found here. It is found in both the deep underlying dermal areas as well as the visible epidermal top layers.
Structurally the scalp is identical to the skin tissue located throughout the body except it also contains about 100,000 hair follicles that give rise to hair. Actually the hair and the hair follicle are a derivative of skin tissue. There are two distinctive skin layers, one, the epidermis (outer layer) which gives rise to the protective shield of the body and the other, the dermal layer (deep layer) which makes up the bulk of the skin and is where the hair follicle is located. This dermal layer is composed of connective tissue and the connective tissue, with its gelatinous fluid like characteristics provides support, nourishes and hydrates the deep layers of the scalp. The result is healthy lustrous hair and a moisturized scalp. Again, all of this is made possible because of the presence of HA in the scalp.
Wet hair thoroughly, lather and rinse. Repeat as necessary. For best results, follow with Episilk™ Conditioner for a complete hair care regimen.
