There's A Part Of Your Hair You Didn't Even Know About!

(A screengrab from Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion)

Okay, so everyone who'd tried every texturising spray and serum a store could hold and had given up, BIG news! Scientists have discovered that there's a whole new component to human hair that we basically had no idea about...until right now.

There were three hair regions to clinical knowledge, till in pops a brand new zone; between the cortex and the cuticle.

"Hair traditionally has been constituted of three regions. Medula (central part of the hair), cortex (biggest volume fraction of the hair) and the cuticle (external part of the hair) says Project Leader Vesna Stanic. "What we've discovered is a new, intermediate zone, in between the cuticle and the cortex," she adds.

The study started out to figure out all the kinds of materials used in hair treatments, when Vesna got to thinking about the diffraction patterns of hair ; and the rest, as they say, is history. 

The research was presented at the annual meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, held in Philadelphia.  

(We're pretty sure what everyone's thinking. 'Hello! Could you pleasefix my frizz/dryness/oiliness now? #NoMoreExcuses!')
