Hair comes the leader: Indian mane best in world
The one part of the body that gives unending stress to human beings is hair, especially when start losing hair. A head full of hair is some sort of blessing to an individual. Most of the people worldwide fall under the general pattern of losing hair, which is less for women due to hormone constituents of female body. There are end numbers of ways advertised daily to curtail hair fall and strengthening of hair, but how effective those are only known after the use. People in different corner of the globe care their hair differently; which is right and which is wrong is difficult to predict. However, hair science experts give their opinion after analyzing hairs of people from various parts of world, which makes us aware of the norms we are following.
Dr. Yashwanth Kamath is a hair science expert and has gone through a study in this respect. The study included three major ethnicities – Africans, Indians, and Caucasians women of age 25 to 35 years. Indian women’s hair has been declared by Kamath as the best in regards to thickness, shine, smoothness, and tensile strength. To support his findings, he pointed to the grooming hair trend in different region. The Africans have the tendency to tightly braid the hair along with the use of neutralizers; the Caucasians are interested in coloring along with blow-drying and using styling products; whereas the Indians depend more on natural ways, said Dr. Kamath based in Bangalore, India.
The study showed the Indian hair is 1.5 times shiner than other hairs due to use of natural oil. As far as strength is concerned, hairs of Indian women are ahead of others because of oil use. When the scientist looked different hairs through the microscope, he found severe damaged cuticles in African hairs unlike the well-aligned cuticles of India hairs. The other stark differences that he found are the protein contents and the porosity of the hair. Here too the Indian hair left behind African hairs. Due to excessive use of alkaline products for straightening of hair by the Africans, the hairs lose protein and become porous, which is general damaging of hair. Indians, on the other hand, keep their hairs less damaged by staying away from artificial products.
Therefore, the overall result has gone in favor of Indian way of caring of hair for women, according to Dr. Yashwanth Kamat of Bangalore.
