The part of the hair that protrudes above the surface of the skin is known as the hair shaft. Unless the hair has been cut the tip is pointed. The actual hair shaft is comsoed of a dead, tough horney protein material that is called keratin.
Daily Hair Tip
Visit your hairstylist on a regular basis. Regular trims are essential for great-looking hair. Short hair should be trimmed approximately every 4-6 weeks, medium length hair 6-8 weeks and long hair needs to be trimmed every 8-10 weeks.
