Abstract: The suitability of Human Hair Fibre (HHF) as a stabilizing agent to enhance the strength of weak soils was investigated. The main aim was to develop a technique to reduce environmental problem caused by improper disposal of waste human hair from beauty parlours and hair salons. The study also investigates the potential of non – biodegradable, locally available and cheap HHF to replace conventional commercially available costly fibres used in embankments and weak soil stabilization.

Keywords: Human Hair Fibre (HHF), Non – Biodegradable, Soil Sample, Embankments & Weak Soil Stabilization
