Detailed description

AMPHOMER® LV-71 polymer is a hard holding, amphoteric acrylic film former especially designed for 80% VOC hair sprays to provide improved sprayability with systems that contain low levels of water. In 80% VOC hair sprays containing approximately 15% water, AMPHOMER LV-71 polymer can provide fine atomization as well as the superior features and benefits expected from AMPHOMER polymer, including excellent stiffness and high humidity curl retention properties. AMPHOMER LV-71 polymer’s composition is also covered under US Patent 9,119,972 B2, and can act as a hair shield for hot heating implements such as flat irons and curling wands, helping to protect the hair cuticle from hair damage caused by heat
