  • Is it ok to use 0.2% cationic guar in a clarifying shampoo?

    Posted by abdullah on March 19, 2023 at 1:29 am

    I make a coditioner with 1% spdma, 2% fatty alcohol & 0.1% amodimethicone.

    With this i am making a clarifying shampoo with 7% SLES & 1% CAPB.

    Women who use them have noticed hair combing is easier if i use 0.2% cationic guar in this Shampoo. This result was from one or two use, not Long term use.

    My questions

    1. What ingredients can we add or not add in a clarifying shampoo that is used with conditioner above?

    2. Is it ok to use 0.2% cationic guar in a clarifying shampoo?

    3. What else do you recommend in a clarifying shampoo?

    You can use 0.2% of Cat Guar, just use the one for clear systems…or use PQ-10.

      Is there any difference in performance of the one for clear vs opaque system or just for appearance purpose?
