During the TRI-Princeton 8th International Conference on Applied Hair Science, Crisan Popescu, Ph.D., of Kao, revealed some of the latest exciting areas of hair research stirring scientific interest; the living-dead connection, for one.

Additionally, he highlighted the new, high-level sophistication of instruments to visualize this architecture in the shaft and see how it impacts the behavior and movement of hair.
