Winter can affect hair growth and lead to hair fall, instead of spending money after costly expensive, chemical leached hair products, and say hello to natural remedies. Our hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in the hair follicles. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin at the rate of about six inches a year. The hair that you can see is actually a string of dead keratin cells.
