Abstract: Hair keratin fiber damage were simulated and the damaging effect relating to surface morphological structure, hair color change, chemical change as well as tensile strength were assessed. Three different damages to hair fiber were simulated including sunlight exposures, bleaching and waving or perming treatments had been simulated. Scanning electron microscopy's result revealed that the bleaching samples achieve the most surface damage with obvious lifting of the cuticle cells, receives the highest color changing effects, and adds to degradation of breaking load capacity of the fiber. As such, bleaching has the most damaging effects for hair among the three different types of treatment.
