    I just want to know if my quantities make sense please. If maybe theres too much of a certain thing that I should rather use less (or more ) of.

    Is it a leave-in conditioner?

    Yes, it would be helpful to know if it were rinse-off or leave-in.

    For a rinse off product, you’ve got too much Panthenol & Hydrolyzed Wheat protein. These things are water soluble and will just rinse down the drain.

    For leave-in  you’ve got too much BTMS (you don’t need it) and eucalyptus oil (it may cause allergic reactions).

    Thank you so much Perry! It’s a rinse-out conditioner. I will adjust my ingredients accordingly. I would’ve actually wasted money had I not asked for help. Thank you so much.
