Description - Hair

 

⦁Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles    found in the dermis, or skin.

⦁Hair is focused on hair growth, hair types and hair  care, but hair is also an important biomaterial  primarily composed of protein, notably keratin.

⦁Each strand of hair is made up of the medulla, cortex,  and cuticle.

⦁The shape of the follicle determines the shape of the  cortex, and the shape of the fiber is related to how  straight or curly the hair is. People with straight hair    have round hair fibers. Oval and other shaped fibers  are generally more wavy or curly. 

⦁Hair growth begins inside the hair follicle. The only  "living" portion of the hair is found in the follicle.

⦁The root is lodged in a follicular involution of the  epidermis called the hair follicle.

⦁The base of a hair's root (the "bulb") contains the cells  that produce the hair shaft.

⦁All natural hair colors are the result of two types of  hair pigments. Both of these pigments are melanin  types, produced inside the hair follicle and packed  into granules found in the fibers. Eumelanin is the  dominant pigment in brown hair and black hair,  while pheomelanin is dominant in red hair. Blond hair  is the result of having little pigmentation in the hair  strand. Gray hair occurs when melanin production  decreases or stops, while poliosis is hair (and often the  skin to which the hair is attached), typically in spots,  that never possessed melanin at all in the first place,  or ceased for natural genetic reasons, generally, in the  first years of life.

⦁Hair grows everywhere on the external body except  for mucus membranes and glabrous skin, such as that  found on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet,  and lips.

 


I am definitely convinced of the hair color !!! The colors have a good covering and durability, are natural and brilliant.
