I discovered an article ulprospector highlighting the effect of LGNs in hair conditioners.( said article being ).
In the comment section, someone asked what would be the optimum ratio of low HLB vs high HLB to formulate a daily, economical conditioner. To which the author replied, Typically 1-1.5% Quat (high HLB) and 3-5% Cetearyl alcohol (low HLB) or a ratio of around 25-30%.
Based on the above, what would be the same ratios for:
a daily leave-in conditioner
a deep treatment
I'm also struggling with this part under factors affecting LGN performance
" Ratio of high HLB to total surfactant has a significant impact on viscosity and the conditioning properties. For optimum conditioning, this ratio should be ~30%."
Is it possible for someone to elaborate with an example?
