Your Hair Story: Hair is composed primarily of "dead" Proteins; known as Keratin. Hair is divided into Two Parts: the Root and Shaft. The Root of the Hair is in the skin of scalp. The Hair Shaft has three Layers: the Cuticle, Medulla and Cortex. Cuticle is the outer layer; it protects the inner Layer.
A healthy Cuticle gives a shiny appearance to Hair. Medulla is the innermost layer, composed of large cells. Cortex is the layer between the Cuticle and Medulla; it "houses" the "colour giving" Melanin pigment and Keratin. Cortex also determines bulk and strength of Hair.
Hair is more than just a "Cute Wrap"; it performs a host of biological functions, apart from being a cover up for most part of the body:
- Hair protects your head
- It keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer
- It protects against sunburn
- Eyelashes & nasal hair prevent dust and foreign particles from entering your eyes and nose
- Hair has nerve endings ; which give you that "feel good" factor after a Head Massage
