INTERNAL LIPIDS IN HAIR HEALTH 355 These data illustrate that it is feasible for lipids, such as FaOHs, to penetrate hair and increase hair strength. The exact nature of how FaOHs increase fatigue strength is not completely understood but it is hypothesized that these actives partition into the lipid- rich cortical CMC and rebuild its structural order, preventing the formation and prop- agation of fl aws when hair is subjected to repeated extensions. CONCLUSIONS Optical microscopy has been used to show how lipid structures in hair form a continuous linked structure throughout the cortex playing a major role in maintaining fatigue strength. Measurement of lipid levels has shown how these lipids are lost after washing and exposure to coloring treatments and UV. A mechanism for oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids was proposed and evidence provided by the measurement of LPOs. Replenish- ment of these lipids was achieved via incorporation into a gel network structure that ef- fectively deposits on hair and releases the lipids into hair during rinsing. This penetration of internal lipids with FaOH, increasing internal strength was measured by fatigue breakage testing.
