red, black yellow and clear fibers. it's a fiesta.
all the fibers recovered from "hair" sample from a comb used on
scalp. usual bleach soak to remove the "real hair".
The fibers and the clear particles they sprout from are remarkably rugged.
Extreme acids and bases only make them squeaky clean.
close up of the "twin" red fiber. can't quite get both "legs" in
focus at the same time at this magnification; settled for a good focus on the left
leg...you can see it's penetration into the red "gel".
this view used a little bottom lighting for contrast ..the white blurry background is
a water/bleach film remaining on the slide..along with some of the very small clear fibers that are
not in focus.
