Bold vibrant colours and healthy hair! It has never been so easy for consumers to change their hair colour and still keep it looking healthy!
There are not only a great range of colours in the market that can be used for permanent or temporary colouring, but there are also a great amount of post-colouring products to maintain colour and healthy-hair appearance.
We offer a variety of products for post-colouring, which help improve the vibrancy and performance of hair colouring products, providing truer, long-lasting and shinier colours whilst keeping their radiance and for longer. We also provide a collection of sulphate-free ingredients, which avoid stripping of hair pigments, improving colour durability. Get to know Croda’s technologies for the care of intense, long-lasting hair colours.
Intrinsically, virgin hair has a slight negative charge. However, due to the high pH of the colouring system, the hair becomes even more negatively charged,making it very receptive to cationic conditioners. These conditioners are formulated in the colourant and in the after hair colouring conditioners to improve the feel and add softness and smoothness to the hair.

Help maintain formulation stability and provide thickening actions. Other than our usual nonionic emulsifiers, our Phosphate esters are great emulsifiers and can be incorporated in both colorant and developer.
Hair colour can remove both lipid and protein materials from the hair leaving it with a dry and raspy feel. Proteins and their derivatives can undo this damage to improve the after feel and the overall condition of the colour treated hair. Humectants like our Incromectant range provide a non-tacky alternative to glycerin offering moisturisation back to the hair due to their hygroscopic nature.
Through Crodarom and Sederma Inc, Croda offers a line of high quality botanical extracts, exotic oils and specialty ingredients. The maximum benefit of these can be obtained by using them in the post colouring conditioner for a natural-themed marketing hair colour story.
Most of the dye intermediates are water soluble, but few are not and so traditionally, alcohols or glycols have been used to solubilise those dyes and other hydrophobic ingredients in the formula. However, these alcohols tend to dry out the hair; fatty alkoxylates, Lanolins and derivatives are the best alternatives while improving the feel of the hair at the same time.
They double-up as wetting agents and cleansing aids to help prevent dye build up on the hair surface.
The color mixture should be thin enough to be easily applied to the hair and yet has to be thick enough in order not to drip on the face. Thickening agents can provide not only thickening but good feel as well. Polymers are used not only in the colourant but the developer as well to improve the mixture viscosity.
