AC Rice Curl Complex PF

Curly hair is unique. In terms of structure, it contains a higher degree of disulfide bridges than straight or wavy hair. Research indicates that hair is more susceptible to breakage as the individual fibers overlap or wrap around the teeth of either a comb or a brush when styling. Given the nature of curly hair, it is more prone to damage and breakage. When hair fibers are damaged, the cuticle lifts and the hair becomes dry, brittle, dull, and difficult to manage. It also tangles easily. AC Rice Curl Complex PF is designed to deliver protection and optimize the integrity of the hair while enhancing curl retention.

  • Curl Retention Assay

    A curl retention study was performed using AC Rice Curl Complex PF. Clean, virgin brown tresses were treated with 5% AC Rice Curl Complex PF in an aqueous solution. Other hair swatches were treated with water as the control. All hair swatches were then dried under ambient conditions. After combing 10 times, each swatch was then curled using a curling iron. The length of each hair swatch was then measured over
    a period of 18 hours. The results indicate that after 18 hours, the hair swatches treated with AC Rice Curl Complex PF had a 12% improvement in curl retention compared to the control. Clearly this indicates that AC Rice Curl Complex PF can be added to hair care applications to enhance curl retention, it can also be used to help condition, hydrate and protect curly hair.
