Henkel Researchers Develop Device For Studying Hair Damage

October 13, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Henkel scientists partnered with the University of Manchester to create a method of studying different types of hair damage related to different chemical treatments, based on analysis of movement patterns of hair tresses. Lead author Erik Schulze zur Wiesche, presenting the group’s findings at the IFSCC conference in Zurich, said the age of the hair and the impact of chemical treatments can affect significantly how the hair moves. According to the scientists, their method uses a device that can automatically detect hair movements to analyze the swinging characteristics of hair strands.
