Abstract

Background: Hair damage is a widespread problem that affects people of all ages, genders, and hair types. It can be caused by a variety of factors, such as heat styling, chemical treatments, environmental factors, and genetics. The effects of hair damage can range from minor split ends and frizz to severe breakage, thinning, and hair loss. Hair damage can also affect the texture and appearance of the hair, causing it to become dull, dry, and difficult to manage.

Methods: In the present study 6 natural black hair tresses were selected to evaluate the sensorial parameters such as detangling, combability, static, shine, softness, smoothness, and bounce at baseline and post 10 wash cycles with Mintop Shampoo (fortified with Procapil 1% and Redensyl 1%).

Results: After 10 wash cycles with Mintop Shampoo, the mean score for detangling 3.33 (0.516), combability 4.00 (0.516), Static (Frizz) 3.67 (0.516), Shine 3.00 (0.000), Softness 3.00 (0.632), Smoothness 3.33 (0.516), Bounce 3.33 (0.516), maximum GF 99.17 (0.516) and Strain 44.24 (5.235).

Conclusions: The study findings demonstrated that a significant improvement was observed in sensorial parameters such as detangling, combability, static (reduction), shine, softness, smoothness, bounce, tensile strength, and percentage elongation when compared to baseline or initial damaged state.
