Hair Color Protection Solutions

Maintain Hair Color

Throughout history, people have altered or enhanced their hair color as a sign of self-expression and to improve their appearance. Today, consumers can change their hair color easily to virtually any shade imaginable – and they want that color to last.

Help your customers get long-lasting color with
silicones from Dow Corning

Results of rinse-off conditioner evaluations show that silicones have excellent potential for their ability to aid color retention for hair treated with semi-permanent hair color products.

Improve color retention and add performance enhancements

A bright and intense color that lasts is a must for today’s consumer. Differentiate your hair care products by providing long-lasting color with silicone technology and formulation expertise from Dow Corning. Color retention is also linked to:
  • Shine
  • Body
  • Lustrous feel
  • Manageability
We can help you create protective rinse-off and leave-in hair care formulations that deliver long-lasting color as well as conditioning for excellent softness and shine.
