  • Presents the biophysics of human hair
  • Contains nanostudies of the properties of hair
  • Gives a macroscale tribological characterization of hair
  • Discusses hair damage
This book presents the biophysics of hair. It deals with the structure of hair, its mechanical properties, the nanomechanical characterization, tensile deformation, tribological characterization, the thickness distribution and binding interactions on hair surface. Another important topic of the book is the health of hair, human hair and skin, hair care, cleaning and conditioning treatments and damaging processes. It is the first book on the biophysical properties of hair.
