Young Chemist Polyquaternium-10 (PQ-10) is a cosmetic chemical that is commonly used in hair care products. It is a cationic polymer, meaning it carries a positive charge, which allows it to effectively adhere to the negatively charged surfaces of hair strands.

PQ-10 is typically found in various hair care products, such as shampoos, conditioners, leave-in treatments, and styling products. Follow the instructions on the specific product for the recommended usage. In general, apply the product containing PQ-10 to wet or dry hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Leave it on for the specified time, as directed, and then rinse thoroughly.

  1. Conditioning and Moisturizing: PQ-10 helps to improve the texture and appearance of hair by providing excellent conditioning and moisturizing properties. It forms a thin film on the hair shaft, reducing frizz and adding smoothness and shine.
  2. Detangling and Manageability: PQ-10 aids in detangling and improving the manageability of hair. It reduces static electricity, making combing and styling easier, and prevents hair from becoming tangled or knotted.
  3. Enhanced Volume and Body: PQ-10 can give hair a boost of volume and body, making it look fuller and thicker. It helps to lift the hair at the roots, providing a volumizing effect.
  4. Protection from Damage: PQ-10 forms a protective barrier around the hair shaft, shielding it from environmental stressors, such as UV radiation and heat from styling tools. This can help minimize damage caused by external factors.
  1. Allergic Reactions: While PQ-10 is generally considered safe for use, some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to this ingredient. If you experience any signs of an allergic reaction, such as redness, itching, or swelling, discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
  2. Eye Contact: Avoid direct contact with the eyes when using products containing PQ-10. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.
  3. External Use Only: PQ-10 is intended for external use only. Do not ingest or apply to broken or irritated skin.
  4. Keep Out of Reach of Children: Store products containing PQ-10 in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
