What is it about?
This paper reports a computational method for obtaining cuticle scale heights of hair fibres from atomic force microscopy images.
Why is it important?
The cosmetics industry is interested in the effects of haircare formulations, such as conditioning and bleaching agents, on hair cuticle surfaces. There is now increasing legislation on cosmetic manufacturers to be able to substantiate claims made concerning their products.
