Methods of research into hair conditioners stability

Beata Fryźlewicz-Kozak


The aim of this work was to produce emulsion hair conditioners, and then to study their stability and rheological properties. For preparing emulsions two recipes with different oil phases and various emulsifiers were used. The emulsification process was performed using a homogenizer. Obtained samples were analyzed to determine their stability. Under the microscope the size of dispersed phase droplets was identified. The samples were also subjected to visual observation. At the same time rheological tests were carried out, which aimed at observing changes in rheological properties of emulsions.
