  • What ug/g of silicone/hair provide good conditioning above which it feels heavy?

    Posted by Abdullah on March 24, 2022 at 2:42 am

    About amount of silicone in hair for conditioning,  i have seen charts from suppliers and other papers that shows 30-700 ug/g silicone/hair for conditioning. This is a huge range. 

    My Question: what amount of silicone in hair provide good hair conditioning and above what amount it will feel heavy?
    If the silicone is Amodimethicone 100k cst.

    You’re asking for an objective answer to a subjective question. For some 30 ug/g is not enough. For other people it’s too much

    @Perry  thanks
    This chart is about deposition of dimethicone by 3 polymers from Shampoo 
    They all have
    14% SLES
    2% CAPB
    0.2% cationic polymer

    1% dimethicone

    There is a big difference between pq10 and cationic guar. So i asked what amount of silicone deposition should be aim for straight hair and as i am using Amodimethicone i asked about Amodimethicone if it deposit differently than dimethicone.
    Any comments on that.
