  • Publication number: 20160250119
    Abstract: Method and kit for providing visual effects on fibres, for example human keratin fibres. In the method, fibres are provided coated with a composition. The composition comprises monomer(s) and optionally a cosmetically acceptable carrier. The monomer(s) are capable of forming a polymer after exposure to heat. The monomer(s) are selected from the group consisting of acrylates monomers, methacrylate monomers, acrylamide monomers, methacrylamide monomers, styrene monomers, vinyl pyrolidinone monomers, vinylpyrrolidone monomers, and mixtures thereof. The monomer(s) have a molecular weight in the range from 100 g/mol to 5000 g/mol. The monomer(s) have a functionality of between 1 and 100. The composition has a kinematic viscosity of from 0.5 cSt to 1500 cSt, measured at 23° C. In the method, a forming means is applied onto the fibres. The forming means orders the composition into a pattern and is a conductor. In the method, the temperature of the forming means is raised to a temperature of from 40° C. to 150° C.

The composition comprises monomer(s) and optionally a cosmetically acceptable carrier. The monomer(s) are capable of forming a polymer after exposure to electromagnetic radiation having a wavelength of from about 300 nm to about 750 nm. The monomer(s) are selected from the group consisting of acrylates monomers, methacrylate monomers, acrylamide monomers, methacrylamide monomers, styrene monomers, vinyl pyrrolidinone monomers, vinylpyrrolidone monomers, and mixtures thereof. The monomer(s) have a molecular weight in the range from about 100 g/mol to about 5000 g/mol. The monomer(s) have a functionality of between 1 and 100. The composition has a kinematic viscosity of from about 0.5 cSt to about 1500 cSt, measured at 23° C. In the method, a forming means is applied onto the fibres.

  • Publication number: 20160067529
    Abstract: A hair treatment process for providing dispersed colors by light diffraction including (a) coating the hair with a material comprising a polymer, (b) pressing the hair with a pressing device including one or more surfaces, and (c) forming a secondary nanostructured surface pattern on the hair that is complementary to the primary nanostructured surface pattern on the one or more surfaces of the pressing device. The secondary nanostructured surface pattern diffracts light into dispersed colors that are visible on the hair. The section of the hair is pressed with the pressing device for from about 1 to 55 seconds. The polymer has a glass transition temperature from about 55° C. to about 90° C. The one or more surfaces include a primary nanostructured surface pattern.
