Today’s hair care polymers offer a range of functionalities, such as color enhancement, hair strengthening, antiaging, sun protection, color retention and moisturization. It is hard to beat the old standbys: styling, conditioning and rheology modification.
In this roundup of recent polymer technologies for hair care, seven companies and more than a score of authors report on the claims, tests and functionalities of two dozen polymers. Full-length versions of these roundup reports can be accessed at www. cosmeticsandtoiletries.com. Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine thanks these contributors and hopes this roundup will help you identify new possibilities from polymers.
