  • Publication number: 20100299848
    Abstract: Provided is a two-part hair dye composition, including a first part containing an alkali agent, a second part containing hydrogen peroxide, and a non-aerosol type foamer container for discharging a mixture solution of the first part and the second part as foam, in which the mixture solution contains the following components (A) and (B): (A) 0.1 to 10% by mass of a nonionic surfactant, and (B) 0.1 to 5% by mass of a cationic surfactant, and the mass ratio of the component (A) to the component (B) (content of the component (A)/content of the component (B)) is 1 to 100.

  • Publication number: 20100126522
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for hair dyeing or bleaching by discharging in a foam from a squeeze container 6 a mixed solution of a first agent A1 and a second agent A2 of a two-part hair dye or bleach composition to apply on the hair. In the present invention, the squeeze container which includes a container body 4 and a squeeze foamer 5 is used as the squeeze container 6. At least one of the first agent A1 or the second agent A2 contains a foaming agent. The mixed solution of the first and second agents has a viscosity (25° C.) of from 1 mPa·s to 100 mPa·s. The first agent A1 and the second agent A2 are mixed in the container body 4 so as not to produce a foam. Squeezing is carried out with the squeeze container 6 stood upright so that the mixed solution A3 does not reach an air induct path 12 of the squeeze foamer 5. As a result, the mixed solution of the first and second agents of the two-part hair dye or bleach composition can be stably discharged in a fine foam using a squeeze container.

  • Publication number: 20040213752
    Abstract: A hair cosmetic product has a two agent type hair cosmetic which comprises a first agent containing an alkali agent and a second agent containing hydrogen peroxide, wherein at least one of the first and second agents contains a surfactant; and a foamer vessel which discharges a mixed liquid comprising the first and second agents in the form of foam. Another hair cosmetic product has a two agent type hair cosmetic which contains a first agent that includes an alkali agent and a second agent that includes hydrogen peroxide, and which is used after mixing the first and second agents immediately prior to use, and a foamer vessel from which a mixed liquid of the first and second agents is discharged in the form of foam. A surfactant is contained in the mixed liquid at an amount of 0.1 to 10 wt %, and the viscosity of the mixed liquid at 25° C. is 1 to 300 mPa·s.

  • Patent number: 6719565
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to build a simulated image in which a subject's hair is changed to a desired color, and to accurately suggest the hair dye needed to dye the subject's hair from its existing color to the desired color. To achieve this object, the hair color advice system according to the present invention includes (i) an image memory into which image data regarding the subject is input and stored, (ii) a processor that finds the hair area in the input image of the subject and builds a simulated image in which the color of the hair area is changed to any color, and (iii) a monitor 4 on which the input image of the subject and/or the simulated image are displayed.

  • Patent number: 5009813
    Abstract: A composition for a hair treatment agent comprising as essential components: a chelating agent having a specific chelating value with respect to the chelation of the calcium ion, and a polymer compound selected from a group consisting of cationic polymers containing quaternary nitrogen, and peptides of an average molecular weight of 40 to 10,000, or their derivatives. The composition provides a perm-treatment with a good finishing effect by depressing absorption of calcium to the hair when it is perm-treated. It also serves as a shampoo, by further formulating an anionic or amphoteric surface active agent, which gives an excellent effect of suppleness and smoothness after washing and rinsing to hair which is damaged from a perm treatment.
