Origin of Hair
Throughout history, I have been of significant social importance. I have been a symbol of power and wisdom. Some cultures forbid cutting me while others shave all hair off their bodies including the head. Other cultures believe that a woman's immortal spirit is located in her hair and therefore should not be cut or exposed for the world to see. And who can forget Samson, whose hair made him strong. (Until Delilah decided to give him a haircut.) So you see, I am important. With that said, let me tell you about myself. In order to get a clear understanding of hair, you need to know how I develop and grow and the "stuff" of which I am made.
In this module, you will gain a basic understanding of the structure of the hair. You will learn how it develops, what it is made of, and the chemical composition of the hair. You will also be provided some experiments to perform and puzzles just for fun.
In this module you will cover the following topics:
