The white stuff at the root of your hair is called the scalp. The scalp is a delicate and vital organ. Without it, your body cannot function properly. For example, the white blood cells in the bloodstream communicate with each other and with other organs to carry out their essential functions. Without the white blood cells, the body cannot fight off infections and the infections cannot be treated effectively. The white blood cells also help to protect other parts of the body from infection. About a quarter of the white blood cells are located in the hair follicles of the scalp. These white blood cells help to keep the scalp healthy.
What is the White Stuff at the Root of Hair?
The white stuff at the root of the hair is the keratin. In earlier times, people believed that the white stuff at the root of hair was a fungus, which was removed by peeling it off. They also believed that if you had hair on your head, you would be able to grow as much hair like a goat. It is believed that if you have this white stuff removed from your hair and there is no more growth of hair from it, then you will be able to grow as much new hair as a goat grows.
What To Do About The White Stuff At The Root Of Hair?
- Cut your hair short and shave it off – this will help to prevent the growth of new hair.
- Use a good shampoo and conditioner – these products will help to cleanse the hair and remove any fungus or bacteria that is present.
- Wash your hair with mild soap – these products are mild enough not to strip the natural oils from the scalp and they are gentle enough to keep the skin safe.
- Use an anti-dandruff shampoo if necessary – these products contain ingredients that help to eliminate any dandruff or flaking of the scalp, which will make it easier for you to keep clean and healthy-looking hair. Using dandruff shampoos regularly can also prevent dandruff in the future, if you use them regularly on a regular basis then you will have no need for dandruff shampoos in the future as well as there is no need for you to use them again and again just because you have dandruff.
- Apply a good conditioner to the hair every time you wash it – this will help to keep the hair healthy and prevent any damage from occurring.
- Cut your hair short and shave it regularly – this will help to prevent any new unwanted growth of hair, once cut short and shaved it will not grow again, so you can keep your hair as long as you want.
- Keep your head warm – this is very important in preventing the growth of new hair, as in cold weather, the hair follicles are inactive or dormant and do not produce any new hairs. In cold weather, you can use a scarf or hat on your head to keep your head warm to ensure that the follicles are active and producing new hairs at all times (not just when it is cold outside).
The follicles are more active during spring and summer than they are during winter and autumn. During summer, the temperature of our skin rises and this is the reason why we see a lot of new hair growth in summer.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals on your hair – if you use harsh chemicals such as bleach, then the hair follicles are more likely to be damaged and so they will not be able to produce any new hairs. Using harsh chemicals on your hair can also cause damage to the scalp, which can cause itchiness and dandruff.
- Avoid using too much product on your hair – it is important that you do not use too many products on your hair, because this will build up a layer of oil on top of the scalp which can lead to itchy skin and dandruff. If you have excessive oil build-up on your scalp then you should try using a mild shampoo once or twice a week to remove the excess oil from the scalp.
- Avoid using a conditioner that contains silicone or other harmful chemicals – these products are known for being quite drying and damaging to the hair and scalp. It is best to use a conditioner that contains natural ingredients such as coconut and olive oil, which will help to nourish your hair and scalp.
How To Check If You Have A Deficient White Blood Cell
A blood test to determine your white blood cell count is not very accurate. A blood test is only as accurate as the person doing the test knows how to interpret the results. Another test that is inaccurate is the blood test. A third test that is often used as a proxy for white blood cell count is the urinalysis, which is often done together with a culture test to determine the type of infection present.
Due to all these inaccuracies, it is very difficult to know for sure if you have a white blood cell (WBC) deficiency. Fortunately, there is an inexpensive and easy to perform a test that can tell you for sure. If you get a white blood cell (WBC) count above normal, you can be almost 100% sure that you do not have a WBC deficiency. Here is what to do:
- Get a blood sample from a vein in your arm. Do not get a blood sample from your finger as this will give an inaccurate WBC count.
- Put the blood in a test tube and put it in the refrigerator for twenty minutes, or until it is at room temperature. This will make the blood more difficult for bacteria to grow on it. If you do not have access to a refrigerator, then you can use another method that is equally effective, such as placing the blood in your freezer for twenty minutes, or until it is at room temperature.
- When you are ready to perform the test, mix one-half teaspoon of potassium iodide (KI) with two ounces of distilled water and put this solution into the test tube containing your white blood cell (WBC). The KI will kill all bacteria on the surface of the white cells that are present on your skin, so there should be no bacteria present in the solution.
- Shake the tube until all of the KI is dissolved, and then wait two minutes before putting it in the refrigerator or freezer. The solution will now be stable for two hours, and it can be used again as many times as you need to perform tests on it.
- After two hours are up, add one-half teaspoon of potassium iodide to a test tube containing one pint of distilled water and put this solution into your refrigerator or freezer for twenty minutes, or until it is at room temperature. This will make the blood more difficult for bacteria to grow on it. If you do not have access to a refrigerator, then you can use another method that is equally effective, such as placing the blood in your freezer for twenty minutes, or until it is at room temperature.
A WBC is the first line of defense in the body’s immune system. It is a white blood cell that protects the body from infection. It is important to have a healthy WBC count to prevent illness and disease. A WBC count can be done at home in less than five minutes with the use of a test tube, and it can be done at any time without having to go to the doctor for an appointment. The test tube that you use should be kept clean and dry so it will yield accurate results.
