Hair-care products may be defined as the preparation which are meant for cleansing, modifying the texture, changing of the color, giving life to the stressed hair, providing nourishment to the hair and giving the healthy look to the hair. The word revitalize truly symbolizes the term what is routinely called as re-nourish or conditioning. Now its time to provide dry, easily puck able, fatigue, environmentally stress / chemically stress / genetically stress hair by such a vital element which give the hair its natural life, look and sheen. Liposome is microscopic small vesicles (hollow spheres) consisting of one or several lipids bilayers that surround a watery nucleus. The rationale for including liposome in cosmetic formulations is that liposome might be a carrier to deliver entrapped molecules into or across the skin they might act as penetration enhancers owing to penetration of individual lipid components, they might act as depots for sustained release, they might act as rate-limiting membranes for controlled release, they often are biodegradable, have a low toxicity and are relatively non immunogenic as well as that they might have additional useful (cosmetic) properties. In the present work some hair revitalizers are used in the form of liposomes and these are then incorporated in hair care formulations. The results are given below.
