    Hey, I’m pretty new at formulating, and I have a doubt about what it best: formulating a hair perfume with alcohol denat alone, or in combination with water, and should it be more % of alcohol denat or water? Thank you so much !

    It depends on the claims you want to make and environmental regulations. In California, for example, I think you are compelled to include some water in a product like that. I don’t know all the VOC regulations there but if I recall you likely can’t have more than 55% VOC so water is required. In an ideal world, the Alcohol alone formula would deliver the fragrance and evaporate off the most quickly without negatively impacting hair.
