This paper investigated the effect of three different treatments, namely: (i) sunlight (simulated by Xenon light) exposures, (ii) bleaching and (iii) perming on the damage of keratin fibre (with the use human hair). Four different testing methods were applied to quantify the hair damages. On evaluating the test results, it was concluded that the bleaching process imparted the most severe damaging action for hair. The results of the different test methods were evaluated and discussed.
