Meet the growing demand for hair care products that enhance hair luster and defy
the dulling effect of age with Dow Corning® brand specialty silicones for age-defying
hair shine.
  • For use in aqueous and anhydrous leave-in hair conditioners
  • Intensify shine and luster on many hair types, including gray, bleached, brown and blonde Caucasian hair as well as on Indian and Chinese hair
