Hi Hairtell, I've got a question. Occassionally, when I pull a few hairs out with a tweezer, I noticed that the extracted hair sometimes had a whitish/transparent "covering" or "sheath" near the bottom. What is that?
That covering is called the root sheath. Good identifying terminology! For more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_sheath The healthy, moist root sheath indicates that they hair is an actively growing hair.
