Human hair is a complex structure consisting of several components, and each component consists of seberal different chemical types. It is an integrated system both in terms of its structure and in terms of its chemical and physical behavior. The hair shaft can be divided into three seperate and distinct layers: the cuticle, cortex, and medulla.

CUTICLE: The outermost layer of the hair shaft and acts as a protective covering.

CORTEX: The strongest and most vital part of healthy hair. It is 85% of the hair's total weight and consists of numerous twisting fibers of keratin protein, which run parallel to one another.

MEDULLA: The intermost portion of the hair shaft. It is composted of mostly soft keratin, having no specific size or shape.
