REGISTER

Speaker Paul Cornwell (TRI Cosmetic Science Europe)

PLUS LCF Student presentations

Synopsis
Water is all around us and so commonplace that we often don’t give it a second thought.  However, it is an amazing chemical with very unique properties that are vital to life. It also has some very interesting interactions with keratinous fibres such as wool and hair. This presentation will look at the properties of water in some detail and at how they affect the hair in many different ways. It will also show that water is responsible for some very annoying effects on hair, such as tangling and heat styling damage. Hopefully, you will come away with new admiration and respect for this little molecule.
