  • Patent number: 10835480
    Abstract: A method of treating the hair including providing a concentrated hair care composition in a foam dispenser. The concentrated hair care composition includes one or more silicones, perfume, and less than 6% high melting point fatty compounds. The method also includes dispensing the concentrated hair care composition from the foam dispenser as a dosage of foam; applying the foam to the hair; and rinsing the foam from the hair. The foam has a density of from about 0.025 g/cm3 to about 0.40 g/cm3 when dispensed from the foam dispenser. The one or more silicones form a silicone layer that has a Targeted Deposition Index of from about 0.8 to about 1.6.
