About this work


This image shows a healthy strand of hair from a Caucasian woman with brown hair. The outer layer of the hair is the cuticle and is made up of overlapping cells, which protect the cortex layer underneath. Most strands of hair have three layers, the medulla is the third and innermost layer (which is absent in blond hair).
