In the study of all sciences, chemistry is considered the central science. This is simply because it is essential to the study of all other sciences and (although not obvious), is fundamentally core to hairstyling and professional barbering. Without truly appreciating the chemistry, a barber or stylist will be deprived of the know-how behind the central component which drives the industry and their profession. Understanding hair chemistry is now more important than ever as it has served in some civilisations to represent power, beauty and even survival.(C)hair science is a book written by an ex-academic scientist (and bioengineer) turned-entrepreneur and pro-barber. The manuscript provides scientific content that professional barbers can use to better understand hair both on a macro and micro scale.
