I believe it is the outter most protective layer of the hair shaft. Locks in moisture and is the structure of the hair. Not sure what else you really want to know about the cuticle scale.. like do you want to know the protein make up of the scale? more about the function and purpose?

you mean like protecting it? it is very important to protect the cuticle of the hair because a hair's cuticle like a skin's pore. as the cuticle wears down (loses scales) it become more vulnerable to damaged. now, if youre considering a human hair strand's scale in relation to other mammals's cuticle scale patterns then thats something i dont know too much but theres lotsa research about it. just google it
