What is the scalp's structure? What is its function?

The scalp is the same as skin on other parts of our body, and has lipid glands and sweat glands.
Like other parts of skin, the scalp’s stratum corneum (skin’s outer layer) is only 0.02mm thick, but it plays an important role in protecting our body against external irritation. The lipid glands and sweat glands found in the scalp work to maintain skin moisture. Scalp has a keratinization cycle of about two weeks, where old cells peel off on scalp’s surface.
