On to some hair, like most of the stuff I've done so far, there are plenty of photos of this on the internet. Actually WAY more than I thought there would be. Here's a WebMD article about hair loss that explains how hair works, so I don't have to.
Here's where the hair comes out of the follicle, which is under the skin. And that's all I'm going to explain, because it is seriously way more complicated than I thought it would be. Read that article if you care. Either way, neat to look at.
Coming up, SEM images of hair. First, the intersection of the hair shaft with the follicle. Again, just read that article if you're wondering what's going on there. Then just some typical shots.
So, if I remember from the shampoo commercials I've seen, I have pretty healthy hair. Its not all rough, with the scales splayed out. Unfortunately for the blog, I guess I don't have split ends, so maybe I'll have
to revisit that another time.
