Scalp skin has a completely different structure to hair. When you see the scalp skin with a microscope it is amazing to see how different skin is to hair. Skin is the largest organ of the body and is part of our integumentary system that includes the scalp skin which houses the hair follicle.
The Hair Shaft is the result of keratinization which is a cellular hardening process. Once keratinization takes place the hair hard fibre made of dead cells. The scalp skin on the other hand is constantly dividing living cells migrating to the surface of the scalp. The scalp skin includes the epidermis and the dermis with many appendages; the arrector pili muscle, sebaceous gland, hair follicle, hair bulb and blood supply which all individually and together take part in body homeostasis and healthy hair growth.
Hair shampoos are cosmetic products made hair. They are not designed to clean skin. Would you wash your face with your hair shampoo? Well you are washing your scalp skin with a hair shampoo and it not going to help with any problem scalp or hair loss treatment.
