Human cells have been described as power plants, chemical laboratories, furnaces and factories. they are marvellous structures, which carry out the functions for which they have been designed with great efficiency. The hair follicle is composed of two layers an outer layer of cells forming the outer root sheath and an inner horny layer of horny, fibrous oblong cells. The hair grows upwards from the bottom of the follicle by multiplication of the soft cells, which become elongated and pigmented to form elongated and pigmented to form the fibre like substance of the hair shaft .
