Paper Abstract

A color-camera-based technique was used for evaluation of reflectance and transmittance of the human hair shafts. The inverse Monte Carlo method was used for estimation of hair optical properties - absorption and reduced scattering coefficients. Hair samples have been obtained from ten volunteers. We have investigated blond, brown, black, light- brown and gray hairs. Obtained differences in absorption and scattering properties correlate with structure- morphological features of hair types. Offered method allows one to provide express-analysis of optical properties of a hair shaft, to determined separately absorption and scattering coefficients and melanin content.
