NCSU researchers develop new generation of hair dyes


The hair-color industry is a growing multibillion-dollar international business.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have created the largest chemical database of hair-color substances to develop a new generation of hair dyes that are safer for consumers, stylists and the environment. The online public database contains information on the structure and properties of 313 substances in commercial hair dyes.

“The database can definitely help drive design, not just of hair dyes but of other types of dyes, using the same approach,” says Tova Williams, NC State doctoral student and author of the journal article on the research.
