Renata Ptak-Kolorz – TrIchology Consultant
Hair is made of a shaft and a root hidden in the skin. Hair roots produce over one kilometer of keratin a month. Keratin is formed in the matrix cells which are part of the root. These cells divide several times quicker than any other body cells. The structure and stiffness of hair is dictated by keratin fibres and its elasticity and softness depends on the water content in keratin fibres and matrix. The main element of the hair is cortex, which contains the pigment. The hair is produced in the hair bulb and its lower part – the matrix. Hair bulbs are made of connective tissue and it contains numerous blood vessels and nerves.
External factors such as blow-drying, hair-straightening, colouring, excessive styling, changes in temperature can damage keratin fibres and thus the structure of the hair.

During the Firecure treatment damaged hair is regenerated with the use of fire. The fire causes hair cuticles to open and close within a short period of time, which allows keratin to permeate deep into the hair. The procedure does not affect the length of the hair.
