Kristin: It’s hard to pass up an opportunity to link Pamela Anderson and nanotechnology, and The Age has helped us out today with a report on how scientists are analysing how hair fibres interact. ‘Science banishes bad hair days’ explains how German scientists have used an atomic force microscope to find that damaged hair is covered in scaly, ‘jutting-out’ projections. Understanding the nanoscale appearance of the hair may result in better formulation to stop frizzy hair – like Pam’s.
