Men with curly hair should blame their hair shape on their nutrition
A new study at the University of Saragossa in Spain is set out to study if dietary habits can influence the shape of hair in males. New evidence has been revealed that men, and not women, can have the shape and texture of their hair change due to the follicles sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone, a hormone produces by males and which is in charge of developing the follicles as well as ceasing the production of hair in males according to genetic sensitivity.
Dietary cholesterol is used in the body to produce the sex hormones of which dihydrotestosterone is one of them, and then the dihydrotestosterone interacts with the nutrient supply to the follicle, determining the rate and shape of the hair. Men’s hair expert Rogelio, author of www.MensHairBlog.com and The Men’s Hair Book, explains that hair shape, from straight hair to curly hair, is largely dictated by genetic makeup and has a strong heritage composition, meaning that one will inherit the predominant hair type in the family and regardless of how many males are in the family. Rogelio has described in his book The Men’s Hair Book how hair shape in men is divided in 4 types: straight, wavy, coiled and kinky, and that curly hair is in fact a texture for both men and women.
