An enzyme is a protein that catalyzes or speeds up a chemical reaction. They govern various bodily functions and also control hair growth. Differences in the level of enzymes and hormones can cause imbalance in the biological process of hair growth. In men, the male hormone testosterone governs beard, body hair and hair in the armpits. In women, estrogen, the female hormone, prevents hair growth on the chin and encourages it to grow on the head. Occasionally, women develop signs of hair loss or baldness when estrogen levels drop. Rapid hair growth and stunted hair growth are both the results of hormonal imbalance.
