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… Expand

The evolving mechanical response of curly hair fibres subject to fatigue testing.
TLDR
Interestingly, the alteration in load-bearing pattern in curly fibres did not necessarily translate to increased endurance, demonstrating that the relationship between fatigue and strength is a complex one in hair fibres. Expand

Herein is an attempt to bridge the gap between consumer and scientist by defining the more important consumer hair assembly properties (heads of hair, tresses, or wigs) describing how theseExpand
The Physical Properties of Hair Fibers
This chapter describes tensile, bending and torsional testing including different parameters of each of these deformations and how these are affected by different types of hair including differentExpand
Strengthening the Hair Fiber from Within: Repairing the Cortex of Damaged Hair
Consumers often indulge themselves with hair styling and color treatments, which results in many different types of damaging effects on the fine structure of hair. It is recognized that not only doesExpand
Effect of Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) Seed Oil (MFSO®) on the Measurable Improvement of Hair Breakage in Women with Damaged Hair: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Eight-month Trial.
TLDR
The MFSO hair oil product is a safe and effective option for the treatment of women suffering from hair breakage and damaged hair, and is rated as safe, effective, and aesthetically pleasing. Expand

To utilize a matrix of single‐fiber hair testing methodologies to mechanistically understand the impact of common oiling treatments—coconut oil and mineral oil—on hair strands. Further, the effect ofExpand
Development of predictive regression model for perceived hair breakage in Indian consumers
TLDR
To predict consumer‐perceived hair breakage based on parameters from three distinct categories, hair strand parameters‐like curvature, stiffness and tensile strength indices and biological factors like age, hair density are analyzed. Expand

TLDR
Strain rates in impact loading are more similar to combing rates than rates of extension in tensile loading, and the looped and crossed hair formations in snags fit impact-load breakage better than simple extension of straight/non-crossed hairs in Tensile testing. Expand
Hair breakage during combing. IV. Brushing and combing hair.
During combing of hair, longer fiber breaks (>2.5 cm) occur principally by impact loading of looped crossover hairs, while short segment breaks (<2.5 cm) occur primarily by end wrapping. BrushingExpand
Hair breakage during combing. III. The effects of bleaching and conditioning on short and long segment breakage by wet and dry combing of tresses.
TLDR
The very best practical way to evaluate hair strength is by counting the actual number of short and long segment breaks and by considering both wet and dry combing. Expand
