Advice on conditioner formula
I am a home crafter making haircare just for myself and
occasionally for friends. I have read
through the discussion threads on conditioners with interest. I make a rinse out conditioner that is okay
but doesn’t leave my hair as soft or detangled as I would like. This is my
Distilled Water – 72%
BTMS 50 – 7%
Cetyl Alcohol – 3%
Hydrolised wheat protein – 2%
Argan oil – 6%
Cetrimonium chloride – 2%
Cyclomethicone – 2%
Dimethicone – 2%
Fragrance - 0.5%
Liquid germall plus - 0.5%
Chamomile extract – 1%
Panthenol – 2%
I am looking for some general feedback on this formula, but
From what I have read, the protein, oil,
chamomile and panthenol are doing very little in a rinse off formula, is that
I am interested in what I have read about using
cetac and a fatty alcohol rather than BTMS to see if it might suit my hair
better. Is the recommendation 3% active
matter of each?
I also make a leave-in conditioner that is very
similar. The only difference is less BTMS 50 (3%) with polyquaterium 7 (3%) and glycerine
(3%) instead of the argan oil. I have
processed curly hair and like something moisturising. It is okay but not as
creamy as I would like.
Any feedback you could give would be appreciated. TIA.
