About the Webinar

Age comes to us all and affects all parts of our bodies.  It is perhaps not surprising that our hair follicles, that work so ferociously every day of our lives to produce new hair, also succumb to ageing effects.  This presentation will review the changes observed in our hair fibres with ageing, including greying, thinning, hair loss and reductions in hair greasiness.  It will then look at the consequences of these changes for hair care practices, and for hair care needs.  This presentation should be of interest to anyone designing hair care ingredients or products for more mature consumers
