Texture analysis instrumentation can be used to substantiate claims in hair care, but the equipment and test methods are equally valuable in the development of the product as they are in confirming its efficacy. Manufacturers can use instruments such as a texture analyzer to help with all aspects of R&D and production, including formulation and the suitability of specific types of packaging.

Hair care products must fulfill the claims manufacturers make about the products’ effect on hair quality, and these products also must be easy and pleasant to use. Achieving this latter requirement demands attention to numerous aspects of both product formulation and packaging.
