Thinning hair is one of the common problems people encounter when it comes to hair problems. Most living tissues are constantly changing and renewing, so they consist of cells that need to be fed continuously and many substances and vitamins to maintain their quality. The hair root is a living tissue and it is the organ that changes the fastest. That is why it has the most cell renewal. Naturally, it needs to be fed better than all tissues.
