Soft, volumizing, natural finish hair hold

U.S. Patent 8674036; published March 18, 2014; assignee: Kao Corp.

The present invention relates to a hair cosmetic that imparts a soft feeling and natural finish. It is preferably used to provide fluff and volume to a hair style, and prevent fly-aways, unwanted curls or kinks. Further, it can maintain a hair style for a long time without being disturbed by external factors; e.g., combing the hair with fingers, wind or vibrations. The composition is obtained by incorporating two types of poly(N-acylalkyleneimine)-modified organopolysiloxanes having specific structures at a specific ratio, provided in detail in the patent.
