    Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION



    [0001] The present invention relates to the field of cosmetics, particularly hair cosmetics, and relates to compositions for providing a film on keratin fibres.

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



    [0002] Semi-permanent treatments to human keratin fibres are well known in the art. Of particular note are semi-permanent treatments that alter the colour appearance of the hair or provide other coloured or reflective properties via the use of glitter or particles. For example, direct dyes colour the hair in a semi-permanent fashion by adhering coloured molecules to the keratin fibres. The dye can be later washed out. Hair chalks are powder-based or powdery products - typically provided in a blusher-style 'compact' or in pen format - that enable the user to apply pigments and/or coloured particles to the hair.

    [0003] A drawback of the known technology in this area is low adherence of the pigment or coloured material to the keratin fibres - it is a serious consumer concern that such products can make your clothes and/or bathroom dirty and/or stained. Furthermore, such pigment or coloured material can migrate to the skin on your neck, shoulders and face and cause unsightly marks. Moreover, consumers wish to be able to apply. Chalk products typically provide a matt look, which may not be desired by all consumers and would not provide a vibrant, shiny look where the consumer desires this.

    [0004] Thus there is a need for compositions and methods that provide more durable means to adhere pigments and/or coloured/shiny material to keratin fibres. In particular, there is a need for providing improved deposition of these particles. Furthermore, there is a need for providing a composition that is able to deposit a wide variety of particles - whether pigments, glitter or other coloured material. In addition, there is a need for such a composition that can be easily applied and distributed over the hair - for example does not result in clumping of the composition, or any kind of gluey-ness or gunky-ness of any kind on the head of hair. Indeed, there is a need for a more natural look to be provided by such means.

    [0005] Teboul WO2014/001391A1, which published on 3rd January 2014 relates to a "process for dyeing keratin fibres, in particular the hair, which consists in applying to the keratin fibres: - at least one coat of at least a first composition (i) comprising at least one hydrophobic film-forming polymer, at least one volatile solvent and at least one pigment, and then, after drying the said coat, at least a second coat of at least a second composition (ii) comprising at least one hydrophobic film-forming polymer, at least one volatile solvent and at least one pigment...". Teboul does not disclose an aminosilicone polymer comprising an amino side chain. Maillefer et al in EP2090295A1, which published on 19th August 2009, mentions pigments in §127, but in the context of a "method and composition for improving the drying time of hair". For example, there is no teaching in Maillefer et al on deposition enhancers. Calaco et al in WO2013/085577A2, which published on 13th June 2013, mentions compositions and methods are disclosed for imparting a long-wearing color to keratin fibers. However, Calaco et al also does not teach deposition enhancement.

    [0006] None of the prior art teach or provide solutions that fulfil all the consumers' needs.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION


    Definitions and general



    [0012] In this document, including in all embodiments of all aspects of the present invention, the following definitions apply unless specifically stated otherwise. All percentages are by weight (w/w) of the total composition. "wt%" means percentage by weight. All ratios are weight ratios. References to 'parts' e.g. a mixture of 1 part X and 3 parts Y, is a ratio by weight. "QS" or "QSP" means sufficient quantity for 100% or for 100g. +/- indicates the standard deviation. All ranges are inclusive and combinable. The number of significant digits conveys neither a limitation on the indicated amounts nor on the accuracy of the measurements. All numerical amounts are understood to be modified by the word "about". All measurements are understood to be made at 23°C and at ambient conditions, where "ambient conditions" means at 1 atmosphere (atm) of pressure and at 50% relative humidity. "Relative humidity" refers to the ratio (stated as a percent) of the moisture content of air compared to the saturated moisture level at the same temperature and pressure. Relative humidity can be measured with a hygrometer, in particular with a probe hygrometer from VWR® International. Herein "min" means "minute" or "minutes". Herein "mol" means mole. Herein "g" following a number means "gram" or "grams". All amounts as they pertain to listed ingredients are based on the active level ('solids') and do not include carriers or by-products that may be included in commercially available materials. Herein, "comprising" means that other steps and other ingredients can be in addition. "Comprising" encompasses the terms "consisting of' and "consisting essentially of'. The compositions, formulations, methods, uses, kits, and processes of the present invention can comprise, consist of, and consist essentially of the elements and limitations of the invention described herein, as well as any of the additional or optional ingredients, components, steps, or limitations described herein. Embodiments and aspects described herein may comprise or be combinable with elements, features or components of other embodiments and/or aspects despite not being expressly exemplified in combination, unless an incompatibility is stated. "In at least one embodiment" means that one or more embodiments, optionally all embodiments or a large subset of embodiments, of the present invention has/have the subsequently described feature. Where amount ranges are given, these are to be understood as being the total amount of said ingredient in the composition, or where more than one species fall within the scope of the ingredient definition, the total amount of all ingredients fitting that definition, in the composition. For example, if the composition comprises from 1% to 5% fatty alcohol, then a composition comprising 2% stearyl alcohol and 1% cetyl alcohol (and no other fatty alcohol), would fall within this scope.

    [0013] The term "molecular weight" or "M.Wt." as used herein refers to the weight average molecular weight unless otherwise stated. The weight average molecular weight may be measured by gel permeation chromatography.

    [0014] "Viscosity" is measured at 23°C using a HAAKE Rotation Viscometer VT 550 with cooling/heating vessel and sensor systems according to DIN 53019 at a shear rate of 12.9 s-1.

    [0015] "Water-soluble" refers to any material that is sufficiently soluble in water to form a clear solution to the naked eye at a concentration of 0.1% by weight of the material in water at 23°C. The term "water-insoluble" refers to any material that is not "water-soluble".

    [0016] "Dry" or "substantially dry" means comprising less than 5%, less than 3% or, less than 2%, less than 1%, or about 0% of any compound or composition being in liquid form when measured at 23°C at ambient conditions. Such compounds or compositions being in liquid form include water, oils, organic solvents and other wetting agents. "Anhydrous" means that the composition comprises less than 5%, less than 3% or, less than 2%, less than 1%, or about 0% water by total weight of the composition.

    [0017] "Substantially free from" or "substantially free of" means less than 1%, or less than 0.8%, or less than 0.5%, or less than 0.3%, or about 0%, by total weight of the composition or formulation.

    [0018] "Volatile" means materials that are liquid under ambient conditions and which have a measurable vapour pressure at 25°C. These materials have a vapour pressure greater than 1.3 Pa, or from 26.7 Pa to 5 kPa, and a standard boiling point less than 250°C, or less than 235°C, or less than 150°C. "Standard boiling point" is as defined by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

    [0019] "Hair" means mammalian keratin fibres including scalp hair, facial hair and body hair. It includes such hair still being attached to a living subject and also hair that has been removed therefrom such as hair swatches and hair on a doll/mannequin. "Hair" means human hair only. "Hair shaft" or "hair fibre" means an individual hair strand and may be used interchangeably with the term "hair."

    [0020] "Proximal to the scalp" means that portion of an extended, or substantially straightened, hair shaft that is closer in distance to the scalp than to the end of the hair. Thus, 50% of the hair fibre length would be considered proximal to the scalp, and 50% of the hair fibre would be distal to the scalp. "z cm proximal to the scalp" means a distance "z" along the hair, with one endpoint being on or directly adjacent to the scalp, and the second endpoint being measured "z" centimetres along the length of the extended or substantially straightened hair.

    [0021] "Cosmetically acceptable" means that the compositions, formulations or components described are suitable for use in contact with human keratinous tissue without undue toxicity, incompatibility, instability, allergic response, and the like. All compositions and formulations described herein which have the purpose of being directly applied to keratinous tissue are limited to those being cosmetically acceptable.

    [0022] "Derivatives" includes but is not limited to, amide, ether, ester, amino, carboxyl, acetyl, acid, salt and/or alcohol derivatives of a given compound. "Derivatives thereof' means the amide, ether, ester, amino, carboxyl, acetyl, acid, salt and alcohol derivatives.

    [0023] "Monomer" means a discrete, non-polymerised chemical moiety capable of undergoing polymerisation in the presence of an initiator or any suitable reaction that creates a macromolecule e.g. such as polycondensation, polyaddition, anionic or cationic polymerization. "Unit" means a monomer that has already been polymerised i.e. is part of a polymer.

    [0024] "Polymer" means a chemical formed from the polymerisation of two or more monomers.The term "polymer" shall include all materials made by the polymerisation of monomers as well as natural polymers. Polymers made from only one type of monomer are called homopolymers. Herein, a polymer comprises at least two monomers. Polymers made from two or more different types of monomers are called copolymers. The distribution of the different monomers can be random, alternating or block-wise (i.e. block copolymer). The term "polymer" used herein includes any type of polymer including homopolymers and copolymers.

    [0025] "Kit" means a package comprising a plurality of components. "Kit" may be referred to as "kit-of-parts". An example of a kit is, for example, a first composition and a separately packaged second composition and optionally application instructions.

    [0026] "Hairstyling polymer" means a hair-fixing polymer which forms a film on a surface i.e. a film-forming polymer. 'Hairstyling polymer' and 'film-forming polymer' are used interchangeably in the art. In the context of hair science, this surface is the surface of individual hair fibres or a plurality thereof. The hairstyling polymer causes the hair fibres to be glued together to build welds, which are effectively crosslinks that provide the hold benefit. In concert, these welds form a 'hairnet' to provide hair hold and volume benefits to the consumer. When the net of welds is effectively formed, the hold and volume benefits can last all day and offer good resistance to environmental humidity.

    Theory behind and advantages of the present invention



    [0027] The inventors provide herein a composition for providing a film on keratin fibres, more particularly a composition for providing a coloured film on keratin fibres. Indeed, the combination of film-forming aminosilicone polymer, silicone resin, solvent and selected thickening system results in a film on keratin fibres, particularly human head hair, that is sufficiently durable that it does not quickly rub off whilst on the keratin fibres, for example on the hands, clothes etc of the consumer, nor does it provide bad hair feel, such as lumpiness, nor abrasiveness, nor weigh down the hair reducing the head of hair volume, nor unsightly globules.

    [0028] Indeed, the film-forming aminosilicone polymer and silicone resin enable the forming of a very thin, dry film, which tightly binds any coloured material and/or pigment onto the hair fibres in a durable fashion. The aminosilicone polymer and silicone resin provides an excellent film via a dehydration mechanism.

    [0029] The selected thickening system can help to prevent dripping of the composition by inhibiting capillary action, which would otherwise quickly draw the composition down the fibres and onto the floor and/or clothes of the user. Nevertheless, the thickening system, particularly the combination of thickening polymer and deposition enhancer, provide a non-dripping composition that adheres well to keratin fibres without generating a sticky feel. Moreover, the thickening system does not detract from the ability of the film-forming aminosilicone polymer and silicone resin to provide the thin, dry film.

    [0030] In particular, the present invention overcomes the drawbacks demonstrated by previous developments in this area in that it is able to provide subtle hair effects that can be employed by a much wider variety of end-consumers in a wider variety of life contexts. In other words, the effects provided by the present invention are not limited to highly vibrant and dazzling hair effects that are often used prior to visiting a disco or nightclub, but also provides chic hair looks that are acceptable in a business context and also not too overpowering for everyday hair looks.

    [0031] Indeed, the selected combination of features - the combination of film-forming aminosilicone polymer, silicone resin, solvent and selected thickening system - provides an excellent support system for coloured material and/or pigments, which can provide the desired effects to the hair, such as glitteriness, colour, shininess etc. Said coloured material and/or pigments may be provided separately from the composition chassis such that the consumer and/or stylist can select the exact the exact type of pigment and/or coloured material desired.

    Composition of the first aspect



    [0032] The composition as set out herein above is for providing a film on keratin fibres. The composition may be for providing a film comprising pigment or coloured material on keratin fibres. The film may be a durable film.

    [0033] The composition may be substantially free of compounds causing precipitation of any component of the composition when the composition is in aqueous solution at pH 5 and at 23°C. When the composition typically comprises a film-forming aminosilicone polymer, a MQ resin, a thickening system comprising a deposition enhancer and a thickening polymer, and a solvent, the pH of the composition may be between 4 and 6, preferably between 4.5 and 5.5. Examples of compounds causing precipitation of any component of the composition when the composition is in aqueous solution at pH 5 and at 23°C may be a basic solvent, or ionic compounds or compounds that are cationic from pH 4 to 6, preferably from pH 5 to 6 or compounds having a relative ionic strength.

    [0034] Indeed, precipitation of any component of the present composition would have negative side effects on the efficacy of the present invention - particularly in terms of hair feel. Indeed, with the exclusion of the pigment and/or coloured material that is herein intended to be immobilised on hair, other residues on hair are not accepted by the consumer. For example, precipitation of the film-forming aminosilicone polymer and/or silicone resin would detract from their ability to form a film on the hair fibres and would form residues on hair. The composition may be substantially free of any further ionic compounds. The composition may be substantially free of any compounds that are cationic at pH 4.0 to 5.0.

    Aminosilicone & silicone resin



    [0035] The composition comprises a film-forming aminosilicone polymer, wherein the aminosilicone polymer comprises amino side chains, and wherein the aminosilicone polymer has a weight average molecular weight of from 10,000 Dalton to 60,000 Dalton. "Sidechain" (aka "side chain") in the context of a silicone refers to a group being not part of the silicone backbone nor only present on at least one terminus of the silicone backbone. "Terminal aminosilicone" as defined herein means silicone comprising one or more amino groups at one or both ends of the silicone backbone. Aminosilicone polymers having amino side chains are sometimes referred to as silicone compounds comprising pendant amino groups. The aminosilicone polymer may be not a terminal aminosilicone. The composition may be substantially free of silicones having terminal amino groups.

    [0036] The aminosilicone polymer is a film-forming aminosilicone polymer. The aminosilicone polymer may be a polydimethylsiloxane having graft amino groups.

    [0037] The aminosilicone polymer may have a weight average molecular weight of from 15,000 Dalton to 50,000 Dalton, or from 20,000 Dalton to 40,000 Dalton.

    [0038] The aminosilicone polymer may be a polydimethylsiloxane polymer having pendent (graft) amino groups. The aminosilicone polymer may conform to the formula:

    ...in which x' and y' are integers such that the weight average molecular weight is between 10,000 Dalton and 60,000 Dalton. The endcaps may be methoxy rather than hydroxyl as pictured in the above formula.

    [0039] The aminosilicone polymer may be a polydimethylsiloxane polymer having a sidechain with from 3 to 8 carbon atoms. The sidechain may comprise, or preferably may consist of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen atoms. The aminosilicone polymer may be a polydimethylsiloxane polymer having an aminoethyl aminopropyl sidechain.

    [0040] The aminosilicone polymer may conform to the formula:

    ...in which n and m are integers such that the weight average molecular weight is between 10,000 Dalton and 60,000 Dalton, R1 and R3 are independently selected from -OH or -OCH3; R2 is H or a C1 to C3 alkyl, or methyl or H, preferably methyl. "n" may be on average from 1 to 50, or from 5 to 20, or from 6 to 10, or from 8 to 9, and "m" may be on average from 120 to 300, or from 150 to 200. "n" may be on average from 5 to 8, "m" may be on average from 150 to 180, R1 and R3 may be both methyl, and R3 is -OCH3.

    [0041] The aminosilicone polymer may have an amine number of from 0.1 meq/g to 3 meq/g, or from 0.7 meq/g to 2.5 meq/g, or from 0.6 meq/g to 1 meq/g.

    [0042] Suitable example aminosilicone polymers can be found in the following patent documents, which are incorporated herein by reference: Decoster US6,451,747B1 col. 17, ll.4-27; Hughes US5,567,428 col.13, 11.40-56; Gawtrey et al US2004/0010863A1, §0016 to §0039; Mahr et al US2006/0041026A1.

    [0043] The composition may comprise from 1% to 15%, or from 1.5% to 5% of the aminosilicone polymer. The viscosity of the aminosilicone polymer may be from 10 to 100,000 mPa·s, or from 100 to 10,000 mPa·s.

    [0044] The composition comprises a silicone resin. Silicone resins are known in the art. The silicone resin may be a film-forming polymer. The silicone resin is an MQ resin. "M" stands for Me3SiO and "Q" stands for SiO4. The MQ resin may have an M:Q molar ratio of from 0.5:1.0 to 1.5:1.0. The weight average molecular weight of the resin may be from 1000 Daltons to 10,000 Daltons. The MQ resin may contain at least 80 mol.%, or at least 95 mol.%, of units of the general formulae below:

            R73SiO1/2

            SiO4/2

    in which R7 is C1-40 alkyl, H, -OR or -OH radicals. The ratio of the units of the general formulae may be from 0.5 to 2.0, or from 0.5 to 1.5. The not more than 3% by weight, or not more than 2.5% by weight, of the radicals R7 may be -OR and -OH.

    [0045] The remaining units of the MQ silicone resin may be units of the following general formulae:

            R72SiO2/2

            R7SiO3/2

    in which R7 is C1-40 alkyl, H, -OR or -OH radicals.

    [0046] R7 may be C1-40 alkyl that is optionally halogen-substituted, linear, cyclic, branched, aromatic, saturated or unsaturated. R7 may be an alkyl group having C1-6 carbon atoms, or a phenyl radical. The halogen substituents may be selected from fluorine and chlorine. R7 may be selected from methyl, ethyl, phenyl and H. The composition may comprise from 0.1% to 10%, or from 1% to 5%, or from 2% to 4% of the MQ resin.

    [0047] MQ resins are available from Wacker-Chemie AG, D-81737 München, Germany. For example, MQ-RESIN POWDER 803 TF is a co-hydrolysis product of tetraalkoxy silane (Q unit) and trimethyl-ethoxy silane (M unit) and can be seen as a three dimensional network of polysilicic acid units which are endblocked with trimethylsilyl groups. Some residual ethoxy and hydroxy functions are present. MQ resins are also available from Dow Corning. For example, Dow Corning® MQ-1640 Flake Resin is a combination of MQ and T propyl silicone resin and has the INCI name: Trimethylsiloxy silicate (and) Polypropyl silsesquioxane.

    [0048] The composition comprises an ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol. The ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol has the advantage that it is able to prevent the aminosilicone and the silicone resin from forming a complex. The ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol may be a non-polymeric, amphiphilic compound. Indeed, the aminosilicone comprises amino side chains, which lend hydrophilic character to the aminosilicone, and the silicone resin typically is hydrophobic in nature. Thus where the ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol has amphiphilic chemistry it can interact with both the aminosilicone and the silicone resin and keep them from clumping, and also from precipitating. The composition may comprise an ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol, wherein the ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol may be selected from the group consisting of diethyleneglycol monobutylether, ethylene glycol monohexyl ether, and a mixture of diethyleneglycol monobutylether and ethylene glycol monohexyl ether. The composition may comprise from 0.01% to 20%, or from 0.1% to 10%, or from 0.5% to 5%, or from 1.0% to 5%, or from 2% to 5% of the ether of a water-soluble polyhydric alcohol.

    [0049] A suitable product for use in the present invention is available under the trade mark Wacker® / BELSIL ADM 8301 E by the company Wacker-Chemie AG, D-81737 München, Germany. This product contains from 10% to 20% of poly[3-((2-aminoethyl)amino)propyl]methyl(dimethyl)siloxane, hydroxyterminated, which is an aminosilicone. It also contains from 0.1% to 0.2% octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane and from 1% to 5% of an MQ silicone resin. The product also contains from 1% to 3% ethylene glycol monohexyl ether and from 5% to 10% diethyleneglycol monobutylether. Said product is described in US2006/0041026A1 which is incorporated herein by reference. A similar product is Wacker® HC303 also from Wacker-Chemie AG.

    Thickening system



    [0050] The composition comprises a thickening system. The thickening system comprises a deposition enhancer and a thickening polymer. The composition may comprise from 0.5% to 2% of the thickening system.

    [0051] The thickening system comprises a deposition enhancer. The deposition enhancer is a hydrophilic and non-ionic polymer, and wherein the deposition enhancer has a weight average molecular weight of from 700,000 Dalton to 3,000,000 Dalton. The deposition enhancer is useful for aiding the deposition of the aminosilicone and silicone resin as well as any pigment and/or coloured material on to the hair fibre. In particular, the deposition enhancer has the advantage that more aminosilicone and silicone resin as well as any pigment and/or coloured material stays on the hair fibre rather than dripping or sliding off the hair fibre. Indeed, in view of the physical structure of a head of hair i.e. a plurality of fibres that are close proximity to one another, capillary action plays a role with regards to fluids on hair. Hence, the deposition enhancer is useful for preventing the capillary action from stripping the aminosilicone, silicone resin and any pigment and/or coloured material from the hair.

    [0052] The composition may comprise from 0.01% to 5% of the deposition enhancer. The composition may comprise from 0.05% to 4%, or from 0.075% to 3.5%, or from 0.1% to 3%, or from 0.1% to 2%, or from 0.15% to 1% of the deposition enhancer.

    [0053] The deposition enhancer may conform to the formula H(OCH2CH2)nOH wherein n has an average value of from 20,000 to 50,000.

    EXPERIMENTAL


    Dripping test



    [0106] Various compositions are tested in order to elucidate advantageous dripping behaviour of various thickening systems. A base composition is prepared that comprises water, an aminosilicone polymer (polydimethylsiloxane polymer having graft amino groups), silicone resin (MQ resin), and mixture of diethyleneglycol monobutylether and ethylene glycol monohexyl ether. As per the below table, a deposition enhancer or a thickening polymer is added to the base composition in the amounts (wt%) indicated. 0.5 g of pigment is then added to 9.5 g of this composition. The composition is applied to hair and the dripping behaviour observed and, where relevant, the number of drips in 30 seconds counted.

    [0107] Conclusions: Compositions 2 and 3 performed the best. When comparing compositions 6 and 7, it is apparent that the higher weight average molecular weight of the deposition enhancer caused composition stringiness. Composition 4 demonstrates that deposition enhancer alone does not provide the preferred creamy consistency. Only the compositions comprising a thickening polymer exhibited the preferred creamy consistency.

    [0109] The viscosity of these compositions is measured and an average calculated. A simple flow viscosity experiment provides information on how fast the same quantity of composition flows down the same gradient and all other conditions equal. The dripping test is as per above.

    [0110] Consequently, compositions B and D to G fall within the viscosity scope claimed i.e. viscosity of from 30 mPa·s to 1000 mPa·s. Composition D has the lowest viscosity out of compositions B and D to G. Composition D has the fastest flow viscosity out of compositions B and D to G. Composition G has the highest viscosity and also the slowest flow viscosity.

    [0111] The time-dependent viscoelastic properties in the linear viscoelastic region with an amplitude sweep are measured and compared. The storage modulus and tangent delta are measured using a TA-Instruments AR2000ex rheometer. In this experiment, different compositions are compared. The components of the composition are mixed together, and then homogenised using an IKA KS 501 digital at 160 rpm and then loaded it onto the rheometer. The rheometer is used with the following specifications/conditions: upper geometry, 60 mm steel; lower geometry, Peltier Element; temperature, 23 °C; Pre-shear, 5 1/s, 1 min; equilibration, 2 min; normal force, off; gap: 650 µm. An amplitude sweep (strain sweep) was carried out with a strain of between 0.05% and 50%, with log data sampling (10 points/decade) and at a frequency of 1 Hz (6.283 rad/s).

    [0112] These data are depicted in Fig. 1, which is also summarised in the below table.

    Hair strands



    [0115] Caucasian Hair color 4/0 Euro-Natural-Hair
    Hair strands having a width of 1.5 cm and a length of 10 cm.
    Available from Kerling International Haarfabrik

    Application of each of the compositions H or I on hair strands



    [0116] 1.0 g of a composition H or a comparative composition I was applied on 1.0 g of hair strands. The respective composition H or I was distributed into the hair strands with the help of a brush or a sponge head. The hair strands were flipped. The respective composition H or I was further distributed until all hair fibers of the hair strands were completely and evenly colored.

    [0117] Each treated hair strand was blow dried manually with a conventional blow dryer for 2 minutes. After each 30 seconds, the treated hair strands were combed from the top to the bottom of the hair strands.

    Visual assessment of the color effect/intensity:



    [0118] The hair strands treated with the composition H were compared to the hair strands treated with the comparative composition I under a D65 light box. The assessment was rated as follows:
    -3-2-10123
    Obvious worst Noticeable worst Slightly worst Equal Slightly better Noticeable better Obvious better


    [0119] The reference was a non-treated hair strand.

    [0120] Hair strands treated with the composition H exhibited a noticeable better effect on hair than the reference.

    [0121] Hair strands treated with the comparative composition I exhibited a slight worst effect on hair than the reference.

    [0122] When the composition comprises a MQ resin, the color effect on hair is better noticeable than when the composition does not comprise a MQ resin.

    Effect of hair wash



    [0123] The hairs strand treated with the respective composition H or I were washed for 30 seconds with water then 30 seconds with 0.5 mL of Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo, and then 30 seconds with water.

    [0124] Each treated hair strand was blow dried manually with a conventional blow dryer for 2 minutes. After each 30 seconds, the treated hair strands were combed from the top to the bottom of the hair strands.

    [0125] The hair strands treated with the composition H showed a good pigment adhesion to the hair, by visual assessment.
    However, the hair strands treated with the comparative composition I only showed a slight pigment adhesion to the hair, by visual assessment.

    Hair Feel



    [0126] The hair strands treated with the respective composition H or I were pulled through thumb and index fingers. The treated hair strands were assessed versus an untreated hair strand.

    [0127] The hair strands treated with the composition H showed a noticeable coated effect. However, the hair strands treated with the comparative composition I only showed a slight coated effect.

    Water dipping Test



    [0128] The hair strands treated with the respective composition H or I were dipped for 15 times for 15 seconds in 200 mL of distillate water. A picture was taken after the pigments have sedimented.

    [0129] It has been observed that the hair strands treated with the composition H lost few pigments. However, the hair strands treated with the comparative composition I lost much more pigments versus the hair strands treated with the composition H.

    Conclusion



    [0130] When the hair strands are treated with the composition H which comprises a MQ resin, versus the comparative composition I, the treated hair strands exhibited an improved colored performance, with an increased pigment adhesion on hair, and a better resistance to wash fastness.
