In our body, there are structures like hair and nails that do not cause pain when cut. How is this possible? Our hair and nails grow as structures enriched with a protein called keratin. The growth areas of these structures are the root of the hair and the white part of the nails. A transformation process known as keratinization continuously renews the cells in these areas. When cut, the cut parts are already made of dead cells; hence they are not connected to nerve endings and no pain is felt.
