Their research, published Thursday in PLOS Biology, suggests a gen...

1. You might assume that curly hair gets more tangled than straight hair, but the opposite is the truth!

2. Fingernails are really just flattened forms of claws

3. Hair Keratins evolved first in our reptile and bird ancestors. These hair-keratin genes were first used to form scales on the body and claws.

4. A fingernail grows 1/8 inch per month and can reach 4 inch growth in a yr
Your hair and nails do not actually continue to grow after you have died, it only appears that they do due to the shrinking of the skin around them.

5. Due to a seasonal variation in androgen (a male hormone) production levels, beards grow quicker in spring.

6. Poor circulations within the legs (possibly due to narrowing of the arteries) can eventually lead to a loss of leg hair.

7. Lost hair clogs up the pipes so quickly because they are resistant to cold, change of climate, water, acid and corrosive chemicals.

8. A study on 117 male members of the Mensa society (a group in which you need an IQ of over 140 to join) shows that the higher IQ tended to have thicker body hair, and also hair on their back as well as their chests.


Pretty easy bun


Pretty nifty




📌MYTH: I can train my hair to do something.

Fact: Your hair's growth patterns are determined by the hair follicle.

📌MYTH: Shaving will make my beard grow thicker or faster.

Fact: Hair is basically protein and keratin and has no blood supply or nervous system. Your body does not know that your beard is shaved (or two inches long for that matter) because it has no way of communicating this information to your body.

📌MYTH: Plucking gray hairs will make more grow back in in their place.

Fact: Hair has color because cells in our hair follicles called melanocytes create pigment (color) in the hair. When these cells stop producing the pigment, the hair loses its color.
Plucking out one gray hair will not affect the melanocytes in the other hair follicles, so other hairs will not turn gray as a result. Gray hair can occur as a result of age or a medical condition.

Here are a few more interesting facts: Your "gray" hair is actually transparent, but appears gray due to the dead cells that make up the strand. Also, smokers are four times more likely to have gray hair and premature hair loss -- another good reason to quit.

📌MYTH: Growing my hair longer will hide my baldness.

Fact: Actually, in almost every circumstance, growing hair longer makes the thinning and baldness appear much more noticeable. When the sides and back are worn fuller, it makes the top appear thinner. The rule of thumb: If you can see scalp on the top, cut the sides short enough so you can see an equal amount of scalp. This will give an overall uniform appearance and take the emphasis off of the thinning areas. Guys with comb-overs are only fooling themselves.

📌MYTH : Shampoo will make my hair grow faster.

Fact: Any shampoo which claims to make hair grow faster is making a false claim. Hair will grow at a fairly consistent rate -- about half an inch per month -- no matter what you do. There are certainly shampoos that will make the hair appear thicker by swelling the follicle and shampoos that will deeply condition the hair and help prevent breakage, but none that can actually increase the growth rate. Some say that doing things like taking vitamins and massaging the scalp can help your hair grow faster, but I've found no scientific proof to support such claims.

📌MYTH: Baldness comes from my mother's side of the family.

Fact: Complete myth. Hair loss can be inherited from either side of the family and it may (or may not) skip many generations. It is entirely genetic and can come from either side of the family.

📌MYTH: Wearing tight hats causes hair loss.

Fact: In order for that to happen, the hat would have to be so tight as to cut off circulation to the follicles. If that were the case, the hat would likely be much too tight for you to wear comfortably, so it's not likely. Wearing a tight hat can, however, cause hair breakage and damage.

📌MYTH: Dandruff is caused by dry scalp.

Fact: Dandruff is actually thought to be caused by a fungus called malassezia, which can sometimes grow out of control and begin feeding on the oil on your scalp. This can cause an increased number of dead cells which, when combined with dirt and oil from your scalp, form flaky white scales. Dry scalp has nothing to do with it.

Now that you know the facts behind the common men's hair myths, please let your barber trim those eyebrows!

Fingernails Grow After Death 06/13/2016

Fingernails Grow After Death

I ALWAYS like to learn everything I can and I love fun facts….especially fun facts about hair, so I present to you: 100 Random Facts About Hair!


1. The average person has between 100,000 and 150,000 strands of hair on their head.

2. A natural blonde usually has more hair strands then dark or red hair.

3. Towheads generally have 120,000 strands; brown/black-haired people 100,000 strands, and redheads average about 80,000 strands.

4. Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body. The only thing that grows faster is bone marrow.

5. A single hair strand has a thickness of .02 – .04 mm.

6. Everybody sheds between 40-150 strands of hair per day.

7. Crash dieting can cause temporary hair loss.

8. Hair is made up of mostly keratin, which our outer layer of skin and fingernails are made out of.

9. In animals, horns, hooves, claws, feathers, beaks, quills (porcupines), and baleen (whales) are all also made of keratin.

10. On an average adult scalp, 25 meters of hair fiber is produced every day.

11. At any random time, 90% of the hair on a head is in a growing phase, while the other 10% is in a resting phase.

12. 40% of women have female pattern hair loss by the time they go through menopause.

13. 50% of men have male pattern hair loss by the age of 50.

14. For it to be apparent that you are balding, you would have to lose 50% of your hair.

15. Most drugs cause hair loss.

16. Thyroid imbalance causes hair loss.

17. Iron deficiency causes hair loss.

18. Humans are born with all of their hair follicles and there is no possible way to increase the amount of hair follicles you have.

19. Hair turns grey as a result of the pigment cells in the hair follicle not working properly. The hair bulb slows melanin production as a result of age or stress.

20. Hair is produced in the hair shaft beneath the skin; therefore it takes 13 days to see grey/white hair after it is produced.

21. A single strand of hair can support up to 6.5 pounds of weight.

22. A whole head of hair could support up to 2 tons.

23. On average, hair grows .3 – .5 mm per day.

24. The length of the growing phase of hair shortens as you age.

25. When you are born, you have about 1000 hair follicles per square centimeter. This number drops as you age.

26. Each hair follicle grows a completely new hair about 20 times in a lifetime.

27. Hair structure is the same, no matter whose head it is on.

28. The outer layer of hair is called the cuticle, and its purpose is to protect the inside layers. In healthy hair, the cuticle lays flat. In damaged hair, they are more open.

29. The middle layer of hair is called the cortex, which is made of long proteins twisted together.

30. The innermost layer of hair is called the medulla.

31. Fine hair usually does not have a medulla. The purpose of the medulla has not yet been determined.

32. Keratin is composed mostly of an amino acid called cysteine, which is what gives the hair its shape.

About Ankylosing Spondylitis | HUMIRA (adalimumab) 03/28/2016

About Ankylosing Spondylitis | HUMIRA (adalimumab)


10 Amazing Facts About Your Skin
Here are 10 things about the skin you live in that may surprise you:
1. Skin is the largest organ in the body. “Skin occupies approximately 1.73 square meters [or more than 18.5 square feet] to cover our flesh and bones,” says David Bank, MD, director at the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Mt. Kisco, New York. Skin makes up about 16 percent of our body weight.

2. There are four main receptors in the skin that respond to pressure: Meissner’s corpuscles, Merkel’s discs, Ruffini endings, and Pacinian corpuscles. Each receptor responds to a different type of touch. “Meissner responds to light touch, Merkel to pressure and texture, Ruffini to stretching, and Pacinian to vibration and deep pressure,” Dr. Bank says. Additionally, there are countless free nerve endings in the skin that gauge pain and temperature.

3. Skin plays an important role in regulating body temperature. Your skin acts as your body’s thermostat. When temperatures rise, sweat glands activate to cool the body down. “Sweating is a bodily function that helps regulate your body temperature,” Bank says. “Normal sweating can be as much as a quart of fluid per day.” When temperatures are lower, blood vessels in the skin tighten and limit the amount of hot blood that can reach the skin, preventing heat loss. Pores also become smaller when exposed to colder temperatures in order to retain heat, Bank says.

4. Skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Skin color can range from very pale to very dark, depending on how much melanin the body makes. Everyone has the same amount of cells that produce melanin, which is made in the outer layer of the skin called the epidermis; but not everyone produces the same amount. The more melanin your body produces, the darker your skin.

5. Your skin regenerates itself. “Your skin sheds its dead skin cells on a daily basis, creating a new layer of skin every 28 days,” Bank says. “Even while you sleep, Mother Nature is doing her job by making sure your skin exfoliates itself, without your help.” That said, dead skin cells can remain on the skin, so it is important to remove them with an additional exfoliator.

6. Dust is partly made up of dead skin cells. Dust is an accumulation of many materials, including dirt, animal dander, sand, insect waste, and even dead skin cells. “In fact, each time you vacuum, you’re picking up dead skin cells off the floor, the chair, and the walls,” Bank says.

7. Millions of bacteria live on the skin. “The skin's surface is home to surprisingly diverse communities of bacteria, collectively known as the skin microbiota,” Banks says. “The harmless bacteria that thrive on the skin can help immune cells fight disease-causing microbes.”

8. Changes in the skin can reveal a lot about your health. Changes to the skin can be a sign that something is wrong. Rashes, hives, and itching may signal an allergic reaction, a bacterial skin infection, a viral infection, or an autoimmune disease. A mole may be a sign of skin cancer.

9. Pimples are not caused by dirt or diet. These are common misconceptions, Bank says, but there are some common culprits that can offset breakouts. “Acne can be caused or aggravated by menstruation and/or pregnancy due to changes in hormone levels, sweating, humidity, some medications, and certain cosmetics or hair preparations,” he says.

To help treat and prevent acne, Bank recommends washing your face twice a day and after working out with a mild cleanser. Use noncomedogenic moisturizers and makeup products and oil-free sunscreens that do not clog pores, and be sure to wash facecloths and makeup pads and brushes regularly. You should remove all makeup before going to bed, and wash and change sheets and pillowcases every few days.

10. The sun does not make acne better. “Contrary to popular belief, sunbathing makes zits worse, not better,” Bank says. “The initial, temporary drying effect and the blemish-concealing tan may fool you, but UV rays actually stimulate oil production.” What’s more, the sun’s rays also thicken the outer layer of your skin, which blocks your pores and leads to breakouts.

Always practice sun safety by limiting time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. Wear a hat and protective clothing, and choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
