    Hello everyone,
    I wanted to ask,
    is it possible to add BTAC and BTMS in the same conditioner formula?
    Does it have negative effect on the hair?
    I used a total of 3.2% as active of both

    It doesn’t have negative effect but doesn’t have positive effect too.

    do you mean to use only one for the same amount?

    Actually, BTAC and BTMS form a slighly different type of structure when paired with a fatty alcohol. BTMS gives a better after-feel on hair and higher viscosity, so using both doesn’t seem like a bad idea (if you’re looking to save costs and not use pure BTMS, which is usually more expe sive).
