When the hair is in its normal unstretched state. It is referred to as A of alpha keratin.

As we stated earlier, keratin protein begins with an alpha helix building into protofibrils, microfibrils, macrofibrils, then cortex layers. The bonds in the hair are located within each and every alpha helix.
