Protein fibers are widely produced by nature, examples include silk, wool, and human hair. Surface treatments/modifications are constantly being developed to endow specific properties to these fibers. Such characteristics might include wrinkle resistance, self-cleaning/soil resistance tendencies, and improved strength or appearance.
The client seeks to identify and develop technologies that can be successfully transformed into consumer devices to promote a head of hair that is full, lush and resilient.

Approaches from other industries that treat protein fibers to improve handling, resiliency and appearance are of great interest.

Approaches to repair damaged hair, to help hair maintain styling effects, to produce hair that is thick, shiny and bouncy are also of interest provided they can ultimately be delivered through an appliance suitable for consumer use in the home.
