...permanent hair and that would be more of a permanent change until it grows out," Bangalore Mirror  quoted Zayd C Leseman, one of the researchers. "The other idea was and still is to actually develop some kind of conditioner. Some kind of polymer coating for your hair, and then when you actually do the patterning with your flatiron that's specially developed for this polymer coating, maybe low heat or something like that. Then you could actually pattern the conditioner or the polymer on your hair first. And then it would easily wash out if you wanted it to go away."
"Then you could actually pattern the conditioner or the polymer on your hair first. And then it would easily wash out if you wanted it to go away, so that's not as permanent and as scary" said Leseman
"This barrel was clearly improperly packaged and should never have contained the combination of substances that were included" he said
Engineers aren't typically known for their interest in cosmetic applications involving their work. However, in a new paper titled "Nano-Patterning of Diffraction Gratings on Human Hair for Cosmetic Purposes" and published recently in the Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications, researchers at the University of New Mexico and Los Alamos...
