Observing the origin of hair via epiillumination

Directly attaching the foldscope lens to a mobile phone is a great thing. Allows to observe surfaces. Using mobile phone flashlight, I illuminated my own skin while simultaneously trying to locate hair follicles. And here I have found one.

That hair surface doesn’t look as smooth as our expectations, right? Indeed microscopicallyit is visible that every such smooth-looking surface has some or the other faults and hence not uniform.

Also, a hair follicle present quite near to my birthmark.
