A Micro-wax Dispersion to Condition Hair and Reduce Breakage

Waxes are known to give shampoos a milky or pearlescent appearance and due to their affinity to hair, they interact with it during the shampooing process. These factors led to the development of a micro-wax compound that enhances the appearance of shampoos while also providing benefits to hair, such as anti-hair breakage properties. In addition, since benchmark shampoos on the market claiming anti-hair breakage properties typically contain high amounts of silicones, the described micro-wax compound provides a naturally derived and renewable alternative. Here, the authors demonstrate how a specifically designed micro-wax dispersiona can impart a marble, dense-white appearance to shampoos as well as provide conditioning and anti-breakage properties that are equal to or better than benchmarks utilizing silicones.
