My formulat contains: SLES, CAPB, Cocodiethanoamide, Polyquat-7, Herbal Extract, GHTC, Glycerin, Preservatives, 
can Adding PEG 7 glyceryl cocoate   benefit for smooth & shiny effect to hair?
and what about adding Wheat Quat C.
pH-5.5 to 6
or can anyone suggest any conditioning ingredient?

    You've already got Polyquaternium 7 in as the conditioning ingredient. You could add more. Or try adding Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride.

    PEG 7 glyceryl cocoate will just wash out so I wouldn't expect it to have much effect. 
  • I really like watersoluble (mixed with emulsifiers) amodimethicone and quaternium-80. Polyquaternium-10 comes in different varieties and can be very conditioning.
  • Thank you @Perry , @ngarayeva001 .
    I got sample blend of  amodimethicone and Cetrimonium chloride and Trideceth-12. going to try.

    Thinking of adding Dimethicone (350cst)--0.3% to 0.4%
    add +above blend 0.5%
  • @amitvedakar, that blend isn't bad but it's white. If the transparency of the product is important, you might want to consider other blends.
  • @ngarayeva001 mine is green (herbal effect) colored shampoo so I think white color will not effect much.
    Infect only available blend now. 
    Thank you.
  • can amodimethicone be used in face wash?
    which amodimethicone blend is more useful for shampoo/wash?

    @amitvedakar be careful when adding amodimethicone/cetrimonium chloride to a formula that has LESS since depending on the dose, cetrimonium chloride could interact with LESS forming a precipitate. You can insteade DC 8500 which is a polyether amodimethicone which is designed for anionic clear surfactant systems.
  • @ketchito Thank you. actually I am searching for plain amodimethicone.
    All available in blend form.
