Does our hair differ from person to person?

Yes, our hair is unique and it is simply impossible to find two hairs alike. How is this uniqueness explained? Hair lives thanks to the blood in our body which nourishes it. In this blood is our DNA housed in the hair bulb. This DNA bears our signature and infuses our hair with the imprint of past generations. In fact, our hair is “us”, a reflection of our entire being.

Some people leave them in a mess without paying much attention to them. Others give it a lot of importance. Many will look first at their hair and face in the morning. A completely normal reflex, since they say a lot about our personality, attract sympathy or not and even facilitate, or not, contact during the day. Hair therefore plays a major role in our daily lives, hence our habit of constantly touching it and re-styling it throughout the day.

Water, air, aluminum, alcohol, diet, intestinal transit, food intolerances, psychological shocks, anxiety, noise, pollution and rest greatly influence our body, but also the structure of our hair. Several disruptive elements can unbalance our cells and, subsequently, modify the hair root, the bulb. For example, cells from diseased organs release substances that are then deposited in the sweat or sebaceous glands. And, such substances are found in the bulb and between the keratin layers of the hair, resulting in deep marks. Changes in the structure of the hair then appear, both in the long term and in the short term. Thus, after an emotional shock or an illness, it is possible that the hair becomes frizzy while it was previously straight and vice versa. Or, we often observe significant hair discoloration in people who have suffered major shocks or bereavements. Living space, medications, alcohol, drugs, emotional shock, nervous fragility, anemia, hypertension, hypotension, insufficient chewing, sleep disturbance and dental problems can modify the hair structure. And, surprisingly, we spot these hairs marked by life's ups and downs when we study the hair bulb and shaft under a microscope.

Furthermore, beyond the structure and root of the hair, the way our hair naturally behaves and styles it sometimes reveals our personality. For example, wearing your hair back and uncovering your forehead can denote a desire to move forward and not fear facing life and the eyes of others. This type of hairstyle is generally seen on go-getter people.

People looking for symmetry, balance and order between right and left will opt for hair split in the middle. These people need solidity, accuracy and justice expressed.

When the hair is on the right, the parting is often found on the left of the head. Traditional Chinese medicine associates the right with yin, that is to say feminine or with the symbolism of mother, woman, daughter, business, church or religion. Trying to cover our “yin” a little or a lot can say a lot about the acceptance of the feminine in us or our desire to hide it.

When the hair is on the left, the separation is often found on the right of the head, which Chinese medicine associates with yang, the masculine, virility, or symbolically with the father, husband, son, hierarchy, authority. Once again, the way we wear this type of hair can signify the affirmation or not of the “yang” in us, a tension with authority or a lack of self-confidence.

The covered forehead is generally displayed in the form of a forelock or bangs, which can denote a kind of refuge or adornment for people who have difficulty facing life, revealing themselves or who are shy . This same shyness is observed in people whose hair covers their cheeks or in people whose cheeks change color.

Hair that reveals the ears or, on the contrary, hides them can demonstrate the person's degree of listening ability and their need for privacy. Covering one's ears generally denotes a need for isolation. Conversely, open ears mean openness to the world, the desire to show oneself as one is. Men often have their ears exposed, which may correspond to their desire to assert themselves.

Our hair therefore provides a wealth of information about us and what we experience. Science increasingly considers the study of hair as an interesting laboratory for understanding human biology and psychology. In fact, our hair simply reflects our being in a mirror.
