Hair care testing is a specialized approach involving study design, techniques and knowledge borrowed from trichology. Starting from ex vivo until to reach the in vivo testing approach, the presentation will introduce the techniques and the study protocols currently used in the cosmetic field. Ex vivo testing on human origin hair locks is a powerful tool to screen several formulations with a time- and cost-effective approach. Hair elasticity, colour, and structure can be successfully assessed using ex vivo testing. Human studies are, instead, the method of choice when the product cosmetic acceptability and the interaction with “living conditions” need to be taken into consideration.
