Abstract

A hair fiber treating method not containing a fixing step, comprising, applying to the hair fibers at least one reducing composition, free of ceramide, comprising at least one reducing agent, wherein the at least one reducing agent is chosen from thiols and is present in an amount of less than 3% by weight, relative to the total weight of the at least one reducing composition, when the at least one reducing composition does not comprise any aminothiol compound, but when the at least one reducing composition does comprise at least one aminothiol compound it is present in an amount of less than 5% by weight, relative to the total weight of the at least one reducing composition; raising the temperature of the hair fibers using a heating iron at temperature of at least 60° C., wherein the temperature of the hair fibers are raised before or after the hair fiber are optionally rinsed.

Description

  • [0001]
    This application claims benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/571,922, filed May 18, 2004, and French Patent Application No. 04 50667, filed Apr. 2, 2004, both of which are hereby incorporated by reference.
  • [0002]
    Disclosed herein is a method for treating hair fibers by applying a reducing composition and then heating the hair with a heating iron.
  • [0003]
    The usual practice to permanently reshape hair comprises first opening the keratin disulfide bonds (cystine) with a composition comprising a reducing agent. The disulfide bonds are then re-formed, optionally after rinsing the hair, by applying to the hair, which has been straightened or placed beforehand under tension with suitable means such as curlers or the equivalent, an oxidizing composition also called a fixing solution, so as to give the desired form to the hair. This method results in the waving of the hair, the uncurling of the hair, the backcombing of the hair, or the straightening of the hair.
  • [0004]
    Reducing compositions that can be used to carry out the first step of this method generally comprise compounds comprising a thiol group, such as thioglycolic acid, cysteine, cysteamine, thiolactic acid, and glycerol monothioglycolate.
  • [0005]
    The reducing agent concentration may be very high, often up to 15% by weight, relative to the total weight of the reducing composition.
  • [0006]
    Nevertheless, such a method may not be fully satisfactory. While it is very efficient to reshape the hair, it may cause great damage to the hair fibers.
  • [0007]
    Moreover, it has been suggested to raise the hair temperature between the reducing step and the fixing step by means of a heating iron.
  • [0008]
    For example, Patent Application No. JP 2000 256 146 describes a process to permanently reshape the hair, comprising the application of a cosmetic composition comprising from 2 to 11% reducing agents and from 0.2 to 4% diammonium dithiodiglycolate. After the reducing composition is applied, a heating iron is used at a temperature from 60 to 220° C.
  • [0009]
    Such a process nevertheless implies a post-iron fixing step as well, which increases the treatment time.
  • [0010]
    Moreover, the resulting shape is irreversible. The difference between the parts of the hair that have been treated and the hair roots is very noticeable as the hair regrows.
  • [0011]
    Finally, if the treatment is conducted on colored hair, it frequently causes the hair color to fade as a result of the treatment.
  • [0012]
    Thus, it would be desirable to provide a hair fiber treating method that compensates for at least one of the drawbacks of the prior art. For example, it would be desirable to provide a method that changes the hair fiber behavior while limiting the damage caused to the hair, controls the hair volume, and enhances at least one of the cosmetic benefits provided to the hair, for example, softness, shine and ease of combing, while also better preserving colored hair shades. Such a method would also ideally preserve the natural aspect of the hair so as to limit the so-called ‘root effect’, that is to say the contrast between the parts which have been treated and the roots, and also ideally reduce the hair fiber treating time and obtain long-lasting results.
  • [0013]
    The present inventors have found that it is possible to counteract at least one of the drawbacks of the prior art and to achieve at least one of the desirable results listed above, by carrying out a hair fiber treating method without fixing the hair, comprising applying to the hair fibers at least one reducing composition comprising at least one reducing agent chosen from compounds comprising at least one thiol group, wherein the at least one reducing agent is present in an amount of less than 3% by weight, relative to the total weight of the at least one reducing composition, and wherein the at least one reducing composition does not comprise an aminothiol compound or if the composition does comprise at least one aminothiol compound, it is present in an amount of less than 5% by weight, relative to the total weight of the at least one reducing composition, and raising the temperature of the hair fiber using a heating iron at a temperature of at least 60° C., wherein the temperature of the hair fiber is raised before or after the hair fibers are optionally rinsed.
  • [0014]
    Thus, disclosed herein is a method of treating hair fibers without fixing the hair, comprising:
      • applying to the hair fibers at least one reducing composition, free of ceramide, comprising at least one reducing agent chosen from thiols, wherein the at least one reducing agent is present in an amount of less than 3% by weight, relative to the total weight of the at least one reducing composition, provided that the at least one reducing composition does not comprise an aminothiol compound or if the at least one reducing composition does comprise at least one aminothiol compound, it is present in an amount of less than 5% by weight, relative to the total weight of the at least one reducing composition and
      • applying to the hair fibers a heating iron at a temperature of at least 60° C. to raise the temperature of the fibers, wherein the temperature of the hair fiber is raised before or after the hair fibers are optionally rinsed.

  • [0067]
    Other than in the operating examples, or where otherwise indicated, all numbers expressing quantities of ingredients, reaction conditions, and so forth used in the specification and claims are to be understood as being modified in all instances by the term “about.” Accordingly, unless indicated to the contrary, the numerical parameters set forth in the specification and attached claims are approximations that may vary depending upon the desired properties sought to be obtained by the present invention. At the very least, and not as an attempt to limit the application of the doctrine of equivalents to the scope of the claims, each numerical parameter should be construed in light of the number of significant digits and ordinary rounding approaches.
  • [0068]
    Notwithstanding that the numerical ranges and parameters setting forth the broad scope of the invention are approximations, the numerical values set forth in the specific example are reported as precisely as possible. Any numerical value, however, inherently contains certain errors necessarily resulting from the standard deviation found in their respective testing measurements.
