Evaluation of a novel hybrid polymer in hair treatment
Hydrolyzed proteins and silicones have been widely used and played an important role in hair treatment. Effects on hair, of a newly developed hybrid polymer consisting of hydrolyzed protein, alkyl chain and silicone was investigated. It was clear that the polymer was effective in preventing dyed hair from discoloring and in improving the moisture feel of hair. It was confirmed that the polymer had good substantivity contributing to hair luster, manageability, moisture feel, smoothness and good combability. The above effects were remarkably displayed especially on damaged hair. Furthermore, a sensory test in practical use of shampoo even with the polymer highly diluted supported the above results.
