Bet You Don’t Know THIS About Your Hair

Little Known Facts

About Hair

We’re all about education & having fun at Lumen Salon… So, let’s get into some hair facts you may not know!

01. You’re Animalistic!
Let your inner beast out!
Our hair is made out of Keratin, which is the same protein found in our outer layer of skin & nails. It’s also a part of animal hooves, claws & feathers.
02. Wait, it’s dead
Sounds crazy, right?! The hair that is inside the skin of our scalp is the only hair that isn’t dead! This is why it’s so important to focus on what goes into your body that affects the hair you can see.Bring on the veggies!
03. Hello, Sherlock Holmes
Your hair is your personal detective! You know from watching many crime documentaries & shows, but experts can determine what environment you lived in…even down to what you drank and ate!
04. Strong as an Elephant
The average person has 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair on their head…This means their entire head can hold the weight of TWO fully-grown elephants! Yes, that’s a fact!
05. Bring on the Sun
As if we needed another excuse to escape to a tropical island! Heat stimulates circulation in the body, which in turn encourages hair growth! Luckily for you, our tropical salon oasis is sun drenched!
