Conference paper


The ‘shape’-elastic behaviour of the hair correlates with the dimensional properties, the intrinsic character of the substance and fibre-interactions. The bending of hair formed into an arch-shape yields information concerning the properties of set- and softened- hair, which can largely be derived from the nature of their interactions.
