  • Publication number: 20240108563
    Abstract: A method may be used for treating keratin material, such as human hair, where a cosmetic agent is applied to the keratin material. After an exposure time, the cosmetic agent is rinsed off. The cosmetic agent may include a mixture of organic C1-C6 alkoxy siloxanes, said mixture being obtained by specifically hydrolyzing and precondensing one or more organic C1-C6 alkoxy siloxanes by adding water and catalyst, and where the hydrolysis and precondensation is carried out in the absence of a solvent different from water.
