Ingredient to ‘increase’ hair volume/density
I’m helping out a client that wants to develop a formulation based on a Vichy’s product. It consists in a rinse hair conditioner that ‘increases’ the hair volume/density. While I’m skeptical about this claim, since I know that hair volume/density is mainly defined by genetic factors, I’d like to know if there’s any ingredient that causes this sensation to the consumer. I once heard that Dowsil VM-2270 Aerogel Fine Particles (INCI: Silica Silylate) and Belsil TMS 803 (INCI: Trimethylsiloxysilicate) can cause this sensation (of more hair density/volume) but since I never tested, I’m not a 100% sure.
Also, there’s the Vicky formulation down below. I think that maybe HYDROXYPROPYL STARCH PHOSPHATE is responsible for the density/volume sensation. It’s the second ingredient, so it is present in a high concentration. What do you guys think?
Product name: Dercos Densi-Solutions Regenerating Thickening Balm
Product composition: AQUA / WATER - HYDROXYPROPYL STARCH PHOSPHATE - GLYCERIN - QUATERNIUM-87 - STEARYL ALCOHOL - BEHENTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE - CANDELILLA CERA / CANDELILLA WAX - CAPRYLYL GLYCOL - CETYL ESTERS - GERANIOL - HEXYL CINNAMAL - ISONONYL ISONONANOATE - ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL - LIMONENE - LINALOOL - MENTHA PIPERITA OIL / PEPPERMINT OIL - MENTHOL - 2-OLEAMIDO-1,3-OCTADECANEDIOL - PHENOXYETHANOL - PROPYLENE GLYCOL - RHAMNOSE - SODIUM HYDROXIDE - TOCOPHERYL ACETATE - PARFUM / FRAGRANCE.
