Heat Strengthening Solutions for Hair Care

Enhance Hair Strengthening Benefits

Heat, styling, and color treatments are not the only causes of hair damage. Even common grooming habits like washing, towel drying, and brushing can cause hair breakage. As a result, consumers seek remedies that restore the overall condition and strength of their hair. They want products that protect and make hair more resilient – keeping it smooth, shiny, and feeling healthy.

Deliver innovative products for stronger hair with silicones from Dow Corning

We evaluated several of our leading silicones for hair strengthening benefits using single fiber tensile measurements. Hair fibers treated with these
Dow Corning® silicones exhibited higher load compared to fibers not treated with silicone, demonstrating hair strengthening benefits in both leave-in and
rinse-off applications.

Help prevent hair damage and breakage

We have the expertise to help you formulate leave-in conditioners and other products that protect hair against common styling and care practices that can lead to increased hair damage. In addition to anti-breakage benefits, you can also add other performance enhancements to your products with hair-strengthening silicones from Dow Corning:
  • Excellent wet and dry combing
  • Enhanced body
  • Shine
  • Straightening

Use proven, tested products

Dow Corning has more than 30 years of experience using specialty silicones and other performance-enhancing materials to develop application-tested solutions for the hair care industry. Choose from a wide range of materials that are thoroughly tested and proven to provide superior performance benefits in the areas of color retention, heat protection, and hair strengthening.
