The SK2000 Hair Diameter Measurement Unit provides an accurate understanding of the basic characteristics of a hair’s outer diameter, which can then be used as feedback for other characterization.
This product was jointly developed by Shiseido Company and Kato Tech.
*Operation is done via touch panel.


  • Chuck feature

    Both ends of the hair are held by a chuck, which allows measurement to be performed without being influenced by external forces (such as wind).
    Both ends are rotated synchronously to prevent the hair from twisting.

  • Shape analysis

    Sensors can be moved along the length of the hair, allowing for easy understanding of the hair’s shape length-wise.

  • Measurement of outer hair diameter

    Data measurement at 360 points (1 degree per measurement point) around the hair’s circumference
    2-point data measurement at the largest diameter (peak) and shortest diameter (bottom)
