Amodimethicone is an aminofunctional polydimethylsiloxane. The organic-like nature of the primary amine groups on amodimethicone causes silicone to have some affinity for hair, resulting in a product with longer lasting benefits such as conditioning and feel. Conditioning shampoos, rinse-off and leave-on conditioner, styling aids and longer lasting colorants, perms and relaxers are the recommended uses for this product.
- Clear conditioning shampoos
- Rinse-off and leave-on conditioners
- Styling aids
- Colorants, perms and relaxers
Conditioners can be prepared by including Amodimethicone in the oil phase of a conditioner or by blending it with the refatting agent contained in a shampoo.
Amodimethicone is compatible with a variety of typical hair care formulation ingredients, including quaternary ammonium salts, cyclopentasiloxane, isododecane and partially with alcohol.
