Rather than studying hair according to ethnicity, researchers from Purdue University are categorizing hair by
curl patterns and investigating the threshold at which each can tolerate heat styling.
This week professors Tahira Reid and Amy Marconnet are presenting their thermal science research at the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers’ International Design Engineering Technical Conferences in Boston, Massachusetts.
