In the fourth book in the DIY Hair Products Series, Heather shows you how to make your own conditioner by introducing you to the most common ingredients that make a conditioner. The book also takes you through the hair benefits of different essential oils so that you can make more natural conditioners, if you wish.
After whipped butters, conditioners are probably the second most exciting product to make. The most fascinating moment in the process happens when you have heated up two sets of ingredients, oil-based ones and water-based ones, and you bring them together. In that instant, they go from two clear solutions to a yummy yogurt-like cream. It feels like magic.
