Finally! My own homemade conditioner

abstractcurlsabstractcurls Registered Users Posts: 380
So after much trial and error and lots of recipes and techniques I was able to create my own conditioner. I'm really happy with the results

I used

Distilled water
BTMS
Oil combination of Meadowfoam, Peach Kernel, and Watermelon
Herbal extracts of calendula, horsetail, peppermint, nettle, sea buckthorn, yucca, and lemon balm
Aloe vera juice
agave nectar
Raspberry Dimethicone
Optiphen
Potassium sorbate
Natural fragrance of coconut, lavender, and orange
(for my girls I use a mango strawberry scent)

It's awesome! I've working on this for over a year now and I finally found something that works for all of us and is also really good for your hair. I think my husband is excited because I no longer buy anything except my supplies which I only have to do a few times a year : ) I’m now working on a shampoo and perfecting my flaxseed gel recipe. I love being able to make sure that my scents are all natural and that my product can be changed if I need it to be.

    I guess I could but I have no time nor desire to. I just know a lot of people give up when using BTMS it took me while to figure it out and it's totally worth it.

    BTMS is great stuff! If you want or need some extra detangling, look into adding some Certrimonium Chloride too.

    I believe it's BehenTrimonium MethoSulfate? That is the best detangler for my curls.

    Watermelon oil? Not only does it seem like an excellent moisturizing conditioner. I'm sure it smells nice, too!

    Although I've made my own whipped butters for hair and skin, most of the time I'm too lazy to experiment with recipes. I'd be willing to buy some of this stuff!

    I will try the one with the green tea and that with banana and honey for sure! Just one question: I have long hair and I always use conditioner cream in order to make them smooth for brushing, otherwise they get really hard to brash. So, can I use the green tea or the other mixtures you have proposed, after my conditioner or it is not necessary at all? Do the natural conditioners smooth hair on their own?

    I love most of the ingredients! Do you mind giving us the percentages or grams used?
