Reducing Human Hair

  • Clarence R. Robbins
Chapter

Abstract

The primary reactions involved in permanent-waving, straightening (relaxing), and depilation of human hair begin with reduction of the disulfide bond. In permanent-waving and hair straightening, reduced hair is stressed, that is, curled or combed straight, while molecular reorientation takes place primarily through a disulfide—mercaptan interchange process. Neutralization is then achieved either through mild oxidation or treatment with alkali (for some sulfite treatments).
