Micronutrient Testing

  • Hair chemical/nutrient composition - Bellu Labs uses Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and other methods to measure the chemical composition of hair samples, which can provide insights as to what nutrients are missing from one's hair, as well as what additional toxins may be present.

Bellu Labs Hairbrush Certification™

  • The hairbrush certification is made available only to hairbrush brands that demonstrate superior performance in terms of supporting hair health.
  • The certification testing is two-fold; both a comprehensive field study and a controlled, repeatable damage study are conducted to measure brush performance.
  • Numerous factors, including hair type (1a-4c), brush material, brush durability, and brush geometry are considered in the evaluation.
  • Brush brands which do not qualify for certification are provided with a comprehensive report on changes required before retesting and certification.

Hair Type Testing

  • Determine hair type for clients (1a-4c) - clients who have experience a change in their hair can request a test to determine specifically what hair type(s) they now have.
