We would like to tell our readers a little about how the structure of your hairs comes within, that comprise in three layers.
- Cuticle: It is hard outside layer that holds protective layer to small cuticles that meet each other.

- Medulla: It is soft central part of hair shaft.
Your hair deserve care like other body parts to be healthy. It needs to take fresh air, stay hydrated, get enough moisture, oil and important products that can pass through the cuticle to get straight to the cortex. If cuticles get too close it gets harder for the water or oil to get to cortex and penetrate the hair. This makes it hard for your hair to get enough moisture that it needs for survival. And if the cuticles are too widely spaced, your hair will have a harder time retaining moisture and staying hydrated.
