Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells

Check out this structural diagram. Looks like something alive and important to me. Looks like a muscle fiber diagram! Perhaps because hair contains nucleic acid and mitochondrial DNA. And DNA is some of the most advanced technology around.

Hair is no more dead than the soil. It’s composed of fibrous keratin, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulphur. These elements are valuable, and in the bulb are stem cells! Everything in the body serves a function.

As we grow more aware of ourselves, our biology, we evolve — that’s part of self knowledge.

Something that continues to grow is not “dead.” And in the quantum sense of the universe, energy is deathless. I always come back to that — what can I say.

Keratin is a desirable, often used ingredient for hair care. What’s interesting is that one could probably use keratin from one’s own hair as a healthful treatment.

It’s possible to make Keratin solution with relative ease in room temperature alkaline water of pH 8 and above.

It’s not a secret. It’s chemistry! Perhaps why buy keratin when you have loads of your own on hand. Plus, easy access stem cells.

Here’s another article on why hair isn’t waste:
