Chemical molecules for hair treatment


Why aminopropyltriéthoxysilane is better than polyquaternium-6 in hair movement treatment?

    That depends on what you mean by "better".  Better at what?

    The aminopropyltriethoxysilane is a silicone which will have better feel, slip and shine. 
  • First of all, thanks you for your answer. The molecule which makes hair strong enough and don't fall even after shampoo

    Neither of those molecules makes hair stronger such that it doesn't fall out.

    At best they provide a coating that makes the comb or brush slip through the hair more easily. This reduces the chances of the hair breaking and coming out.

    The silicone will provide slightly better slip than the Polyquaternium-6.
