  • The objective of this work was to introduce the idea of analyzing data from repeated brushing and combing experiments on hair in accordance with standard fatigue testing approaches. In mechanical testing terms, the brushing and combing of hair represents a fatiguing process wherein individual strands experience repeated exposure to an external stimulus. Therefore, in accordance with fatiguing principles, one expects a gradual propagation of flaws within individual fibers until, ultimately… CONTINUE READING
