Shine Measurement Testing
The improved alignment of straightened hair facilitates the ability for light to reflect of the hair surface and thus leads to improved technical shine. Instrumental evaluation involves illuminating the hair and measuring the ratio of light that cleanly reflects (specular reflection) and that which is scattered (diffuse reflection). The resulting data can then be treated by a variety of shine equations that are present in the hair literature.
