  • Publication number: 20180311134
    Abstract: Described herein is a method for treating hair including: (a) putting the hair in a desired shape; (b) before and/or after the hair is put in the desired shape, applying a reducing composition to the hair including: (i) from about 2.5% to about 15% of a cationic mercapto amino pyridinium compound or a cationic dimercapto amino pyridinium compound; (ii) from about 4% to about 10% of a buffering system; and (iii) from about 50% to about 93.5% of a solvent; (c) rinsing the reducing composition from the hair; (d) applying an oxidizing composition to the hair including: (i) from about 0.5% to about 12% of an oxidizing agent; and (ii) from about 80% to about 97% of a solvent; and (e) rinsing the oxidizing composition from the hair. The reducing composition has a pH of from about 8 to about 10.

  • Patent number: 10034823
    Abstract: Described herein is a method of dyeing the hair. The method includes applying to the hair a hair color composition including one or more direct dye compounds and rinsing the hair with water. The one or more direct dye compounds each include a blue-violet or blue chromophore, one or two permanent cations, one to four incipient cations, and one or more hydrophobic moieties. The incipient cations are pendant to the core structure and are neutral. The direct dye compounds enter the hair shaft after the hair color composition is applied to the hair. The hair color composition has a pH of from about 6 to about 11. The pH of the hair after rinsing is from about 3.5 to about 6. The rinsing of the hair causes one or more of the one to four incipient cations to change from neutral to positively charged inside of the hair shaft.

  • Patent number: 9982138
    Abstract: Disclosed are hair color compositions comprising novel stable violet-blue to blue imidazolium azo compounds that have a simplified chromophore and high relative solubility in aqueous systems, and that are surprisingly stable under the conditions of use and storage. These compositions are useful for dyeing fibers such as hair and other keratinaceous materials. The compositions can optionally include an oxidant.
