Paper Abstract

We take advantage of human hair specific geometry to visualize sparse submicron cuticle peelings with highly oblique tip-side illumination. We show that the statistics of these features can directly estimate hair quality in much lower magnifications (down to 20x) with less powerful objectives when the features themselves are below the system resolution. Our technique has strong potential for lower cost, portable, and autonomous hair diagnostic apparatuses.
