[Full Text]






heart bananas (Musa balbisiana colla), petals, ethanol extract, hair dyes, gray hair.



One part of the plant that can be used as a natural hair dye is the bananas of the heart petal (Musa balbisiana Colla.) which produces brown pigments. Traditionally this banana heart petal is used as a cooking ingredient. The bananas of the stone contain alkaloids, steroids / triterpenoid compounds, tannins, flavonoids glycosity. The purpose of this study is to know that the bananas of the heart of the pisang stone in the form of ethanol extract can be formulated in dye hair dye preparations which in particular concentration can change the color of gray hair to black and does not irritate the skin. This study was conducted using experimental method using heartbeat material (Musa balbisiana Colla). Extract obtained by maceration using 96% ethanol solvent. Screening of phytochemicals on test material. Testing materials of ethanol extract of pisang stone heart were studied in various concentrations, ie 20%, 30%, 40%, and 50%, with the addition of auxiliary materials such as pirogalol, copper (II) sulphatee, and xanthan gum respectively 2% using aquades solvents. Each concentration was carried out by 100 shea soaking for 1-4 hours. Observations were performed by washing 20 times and exposure to sunlight for 5 hours on gray hairs and irritation test. The results showed that the stone bananas (Musa balbisiana Colla.) In the form of ethanol extract can be formulated in the dye hair dye preparation. The results of the phytochemical screening show that the true test material contains alkaloids, steroids / triterpenoid, tannin, flavonoid glycosity. The higher concentration of gray hair dyes in the preparation of ethanol extract of bananas heart petals, the gray hair color changes being examined becomes increasingly black. The best results were obtained in Formula C (40% banana heart ethanol extract, 2% pirogalol, 2% copper (II) sulphate and xanthan gum2%) which can change the color of gray hair to black. The result of stability test by washing method showed no color change after 20 times washing. The result of stability test with exposure in the sun for 5 hours showed no color change and the result of irritation test against volunteers did not show any irritation in the skin.
