Melanin helps protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, and it determines the color of an individual's skin, hair, and eyes.

      Cortex Ad

    Correct Answer
    C. Medulla Layer
    Explanation
    The three main layers of the hair shaft are the cuticle, cortex, and medulla layer. The cuticle is the outermost layer that protects the hair, while the cortex is the middle layer responsible for the hair's strength, elasticity, and color. The medulla layer, located at the center of the hair shaft, is a soft, spongy region that may or may not be present in all hair types. It is not as essential as the cuticle and cortex, but it can play a role in the overall structure and characteristics of the hair.
