Coconut hair conditioner
I adjusted it a bit, using just a half of Olivem1000 (didn’t have more), so I added co-emulsifier glyceryl stearate (home-made). Actually, I tried to use solely glyceryl stearate, but it did not work.
Thanks to glyceryl stearate (?) the consistence is very smooth.
|Recipe for 250g|
|…..if you don’t have glyceryl stearate,
you can either make it (HERE),
or follow the original recipe
and use 16 g of Olivem1000.
Mix all these ingredients (water + jojoba oil + emulsifiers) in water bath and wait until emulsifiers dissolve, then mix thoroughly. When the emulsion takes place, put the recipient in cold water and add the following (slowly, still mixing well):
12 g liquid honey
23 g thick coconut milk
10 g glycerine
if you have, add a preservative according to manufacturer recommendations and several drops of essential oil of your choice (for example Ylang-ylang) or another fragrance.
UPDATE 18/10/2012: However, this recipe is not really appreciated by my thin hair. It leaves it heavy. I would use it maybe as a mask before shampooing.
