Human Hair is the subject of a remarkably wide range of scientific investigations. Its chemical and physical properties are of importance to the cosmetics industry, forensic scientists, and biomedical researchers. The third edition of this book confirms its position as the definitive monograph on the subject. Previous editions of this book were recognized as "concise and thorough" (Journal of the American Chemical Society), "an invaluable resource" (Canadian Forensic Science Society Journal), and "highly recommended" (Textile Research Journal). Chemical and Physical Behavior of Human Hair is a teaching guide and reference volume for cosmetic chemists and other scientists in the hair products industry, academic researchers studying hair and hair growth, textile scientists, and forensic specialists
