The current study aimed to find the effects of hair treatment with shea butter on bleached hair and hair protection. The agent for hair treatment with shea butter was developed in different concentration levels (0%,1%,3%,5%) for experimentation. After applying the agent to bleached hair, hair samples were evaluated as follows. Increase in hair thickness was highest in the hair sample that had 5% of shea butter. The amount of amino acids was also highest in the hair sample that contained 5% of shea butter. Comparing the difference of the surface color, hair sample with 5% of shea butter showed low level of L⁎ while the level of a⁎ value that reflects the redness was high and the level of b⁎ value that reflects yellowness was low. Observation through the scanning microscope confirmed the positive effects by showing smoother surfaces in the sample with shea butter than in the bleached hair. This study showed shea butter is considered to be cosmetics to protect damaged hair by bleaching.

본 연구는 시어버터를 처방한 헤어트리트먼트가 탈색 모발에 미치는 영향을 확인하고, 모발 보호 효과가 있는지를 알아보기 위해 수행하였다. 시어버터의 함량을 0%, 1%, 3%, 5%로 다르게 첨가하여 트리트먼트를 제조하고, 트리트먼트 도포 전후의 모발의 굵기, 아미노산 분석, 모발의 표면 색상 변화, 주사전자현미경을 이용한 모발 표면을 분석하였다. 모발의 굵기는 시어버터를 5%로 처방한 모발에서 굵기가 가장 높게 증가하였다. 모발의 아미노산 함량도 시어버터를 5% 처방한 트리트먼트 시료의 함량이 높게 나타났다. 모발의 표면 색상을 비교한 결과, 시어버터를 5% 처방한 트리트먼트를 처리했을 시에 L⁎값과 b⁎값은 낮게 측정이 되었으며, a⁎값은 높게 측정되었다. 주사전자현미경으로 관찰한 결과, 시어버터를 처방한 트리트먼트 모발의 표면이 탈색 모발에 비해 매끄럽게 개선되는 것을 확인할 수 있었다. 이를 통해 천연 소재인 시어버터가 탈색으로 손상된 모발을 보호하는 모발 화장품으로 사용 가능할 것으로 사료된다.
