AFM study of the unusual fatty acid on the human hair surface
What is it about?
The surface of human hairs are coated with a natural, but unusual fatty acid. This paper explores the nature of this layer using the atomic force microscope (AFM).
Why is it important?
A scientific understanding of the surfaces of human hair greatly facilitate the development of hair treatments.
