Colour change in conditioner.

Good day. I made a hibiscus deep conditioner and I noticed that the colour changes over a few days. What could be the cause?


  • Hi, we can only guess, but ... what colour was the original? If it turned into this pink-ish, it could mean microbial contamination. 

    However, I do see problem in your ingredient list. You are using acetate form or tocopherol. This has no antioxidant properties for your lipids - and you are using a lot of plant oil lipids that are prone to rancidity.

    As Paprik suggested it might be contamination.  Get it tested.
    No water ingredient listed ,and you need to label the chemical ingredient, not the commercial name.
