FT-IR Microspectroscopic Imaging of Cross-Sectioned Human Hair during a Bleaching Process
Abstract: We investigated bleached human hair by FT-IR microspectroscopy and chemical imaging. The cross sectioned hair is approximately 90 μm in diameter, showed cuticle and cortex in chemical imaging. Differential amide I/II absorbance ratio and broadening amide I band between in the cortex and cuticle were confirmed in FT-IR microspectroscopy and chemical imaging. The cystine monoxide band from the products of disulfide oxidation of the amino acid cystine is associated with hair damaging during bleaching process. With increase bleaching time, the band for cystine monoxide shows more intense and larger area in chemical image. The spatially chemical change was investigated in detail by FT-IR microspectroscopy and chemical imaging during the bleached process.
