Science - Cosmetics, Beauty / Hair analysis
German term or phrase: Zopfhaare
Still on hair analysis - here's some context:

"(Das Labor) verwendet offensichtlich auch ungemischte *Zopfhaare* von einem Kopf, aufgeteilt auf Strähnen."

Any good ideas? I'm not sure that "braid hair" or "plait hair" are very suitable given the context, but I'm prepared to be convinced otherwise.

TIA for your suggestions.

Thank you, Girija. I did use "lock" in the end since I couldn't think of or find anything better.
