The XXI century observe an increasing demand for beauty and transformation cosmetic products. Today Brazil is the third world consumer marked of this kind of products and the second one in the marked for hair products. Particularly, chemical and physical hair products transformation as smoothing, staining and discoloration are widely used concomitantly and frequently form. In this context the physical chemical process used in the last decades and their effects in the hair fiber in the molecular/nanometric scale are little know e their impact at long time are sensed in an increasing demand for repair hair products. A range of characterization techniques can investigate this knowledge in molecular/atomic range. However, the ethnicity diversity of Brazilian people, age and transformation hair history is large and was has actually is countless products that do not repairs (or partially repairs) the damage observed by a specific costumer. In other way, the hairdressing fells insecure to realize hair transformations more invasive because they do not know the previous treatment performed. The goal of this project is available a test that rate the cortex and surface of hair fiber of the customer by the scanning electronic microscopy and mechanic traction and indicates a personal hair treatment for the analyzed hair. In the first part of the project, it will be validate an external and internal integrity hair scale bound with the issued reported. Is important to emphasize that this test is the first of national and international marked. We expect that with the availability of the test the client will be more safely and adequately orientated to treat it's hair. In the beginning, this test will be available to only a fell number of marked hair halls. After a time we pretend to extend the test for a greater number of hair halls with a lower price. In this way, the test was a potential to be a franchise. (AU)
