Texture analysis provides quantitative information about a material’s response when deformed by a controlled force. When texture analysis is applied to hair treated with various conditioners and styling fixatives, the results can help substantiate claims made about the effectiveness of these hair care products.

Pruritus or itching is an unpleasant sensation that provokes a desire to scratch. Many factors such as chemical, mechanical, thermal and electrical stimuli can elicit the itch sensation. Mediators of itch presumably directly act on nerve fibers or lead to a nerve stimulation cascade whose final common pathway is interpreted in the central nervous system as itching. Putative receptors for itching are C-fibers with exceptionally low conduction velocities and insensitivity to mechanical stimuli. Histamine, the proto-typical chemical mediator of itch, which is released during mast cell degranulation and mediates its effects in the skin via H1 receptor, is the best-known experimental pruritogen.
