    Abstract

    Human scalp hair samplees were oxidized to determine the sulfonic acid absorption peak. This peak was monitored at 1044 cm−1 by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) in hair samples from 135 whites and found to provide a degree of discrimination in treated and untreated hairs. The effects of moisture, laboratory storage, natural hair color, and variation over time were also studied.
