Abstract:Hair restorative compositions useful in repairing damaged hair include at least one hair shaft bonding agent dispersed within an appropriate solvent or carrier, such as water. When applied to damaged hair, the hair shaft bonding agent adsorbs into and bonds to the damaged hair shaft, filling in discontinuities and adhering split ends or loosened cuticle layers back together within the main hair shaft. A wetting agent may be included to facilitate absorption and bonding of the hair shaft bonding agent to hair. A thickening agent may be included to yield a hair restorative composition that is much easier to apply compared to runny compositions having the consistency of water.

Title: Fluid dispensing hairbrush

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/601534   Filing Date: 17/Nov/2006

Abstract:A fluid dispensing hairbrush with a regulation valve is disclosed for dispensing hair products onto a user's hair and/or scalp, particularly viscous fluids, such as gel, mousse, or thick conditioners, in a drizzling manner. The valve is adjustable for use with various fluids depending upon viscosity levels, as well as amounts of fluid to dispense. Use of the hairbrush prevents a user from unwanted contact on a user's hands with fluids. Many hair products can be sticky or cause dry skin on a user's hands, and in some cases, a user's skin may become irritated by a hair product that may not irritate the user's scalp. Further, use of a fluid dispensing hairbrush can expedite one's hair preparation routine substantially.

Abstract:Disclosed are aqueous conditioning shampoo compositions which comprise an anionic detersive surfactant component

from about 0.025% to about 5% by weight of an water soluble or dispersible, cationic, non crosslinked, deposition or conditioning polymer

the conditioning shampoo may additionally comprise dispersed, liquid, droplets of a water insoluble, hair conditioning agent having a volume average particle diameter of from about 5 microns to about 125 microns. A homopolymer has a cationic charge density from about from about 2 meq/gm to about 4 meq/gm or a cationic charge density of from about 5 meq/gm to about 10 meq/gm

or an average molecular weight of at least 500,000. A copolymer is formed from one or more cationic monomer units and one or more nonionic monomer units or monomer units bearing a negative charge wherein the subsequent charge of the copolymer is positive.

The cationic polymer, in combination with anionic detersive surfactant component and other essential components, provides improved deposition of the conditioning agent on hair or skin, even when the dispersed conditioning agent particles have a volume average particle size of up to about 125 microns. The composition may be applied to skin or hair, and provides improved conditioning performance even without the use of the dispersed hair conditioning agent particles.
