Publication date: July 9, 2013
Assignee: Kao Corporation (Tokyo, JP)
According to this patent, a relational equation can be made between wave information on unpermed hair strands and evaluation values of the appearance of whole hair selected from among gloss of the whole hair, order of alignment of the hair strands, and frizziness of the hair strand from a plurality of subjects. Based on the relation equation, the appearance of whole hair of an arbitrary subject is evaluated from wave information on a hair strand of the arbitrary subject. This allows an objective evaluation of the gloss of whole hair, the order of alignment of hair strands, or the frizziness of the hair strand by a simple technique, and also allows an objective evaluation corresponding to cosmetic specialists' evaluations in terms of equivalent age.
