Conditioner Thickness Distribution and Binding Interactions on Hair Surface

How common hair care products, such as conditioner, deposit onto and change hair properties are of interest in beauty care science, since these properties are closely tied to product performance. Conditioner is one of the hair care products which most people use on a daily basis. Conditioner thinly coats hair and can cause drastic changes in the surface properties of hair. Among all the components of conditioner, silicones are the main source of lubrication in the conditioner formulation. Silicone molecules remain as droplets surrounded by water, and their high molecular weight causes them to remain liquid and drain off hair surface gradually, which creates a long-lasting soft and smooth feel for conditioner-treated hair.
