Molecule tames frizzy hair
Langer and his scientific team formulated a molecule called polyfluoroester, which tames frizzy hair.
The product, called NoFrizz, won Allure magazine’s Beauty Breakthrough award in the fall of 2008. Sephora cosmetic stores and QVC premiered the de-frizz product in early 2009.
“We try to figure out things that make people have happy and healthier lives,” Langer told the Globe in 2009. “I felt if we can make people happier, in other ways that’s good, too.”
