  • Heat styling hair: what really happens - Few people stop to consider the chemistry behind their everyday habits. Fifty-five percent of American women blow-dry their hair at least six times per week. Another 70% use a curling iron or hot rollers more than once per week. How does heat-styling work and what else happens to hair as it gets heated? Researchers will discuss various effects of heat styling on hair including water loss and resulting decrease in hair plasticity. (Presenter Kathleen Martin, Unilever HPC-USA, Rolling Meadows, IL)

  • Artificial color on human hair - Hair coloring products not only affect natural hair color and fibers. They also cause damage to hair protein and produce a variety of shades when treated with the same color product. Additionally, life style, environment and application of cosmetic treatments such as styling mousse can alter color appearance. Researchers will discuss how sunlight, humidity, and hair color products damage hair protein and which factor is most detrimental to color appea
