The average woman in the U.S spends $55,000 on haircare throughout the course of her lifetime, and we know from our own experience and speaking to countless others, that rarely are people completely satisfied with how their hair looks and feels. We believe this is largely because consumers don’t have the information they need to make the right choices for their hair. It’s not their fault - the advice and guidance out there presently is mostly pseudoscience, based on stereotypes and cliches. Our goal at Lemma Labs is to bring forth definitive, personalized and actionable information about your hair for an affordable price.
We magnify and analyze your hair to measure width and identify damage
We measure your hair's porosity, or how it responds to water and product
We provide easy-to-use test strips to measure scalp sebum and water hardness
We magnify and analyze your hair to measure its width and identify damage. Our images and measurements are included in your report.
We measure porosity with a surface tensiometer, which calculates the angle at which water contacts your hair. A large contact angle indicates low porosity, as water is more inclined to sit on top of, rather than seep into, your hair.
We use at-home testing strips to determine your scalp oiliness and the quality of your shower water. Measuring your scalp’s sebum level helps us determine your optimal shampoo routine. Measuring your water quality or hardness lets us know if you need a water filter or a special shampoo.
We find the ingredients compatible with your hair. Our proprietary algorithm identifies products that match your needs. We recommend products based only upon ingredient compatibility and are not affiliated with any other brands.
Our at home testing and sample collection kit includes a hair collection envelope, sebum test, and a water hardness test.Get Your Kit
