Hair Conditioner Recipe Help
Was very excited to try the Hair Conditioning recipe using Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, distilled water and Emulsifying Wax (I used Beeswax).
I followed the recipe exactly making sure I only heated the distilled water to 'luke warm'. Everything seemed fine until I started to add the warmed distilled water to the oil and beeswax combination. I used a metal whisk as instructed and very slowly added the distilled water. At first all seemed fine then suddenly with only half the water added the ingredients stopped blending together...(the water would no longer mix in with the rest of the solution). I did this twice and got the same result.
No good whatsoever.
My thinking is that with the water only being lukewarm, it cools the rest of the mixture too quickly and therefore the beeswax hardens. Can't think what else it could be.
Can you help please? I would love to make this successfully.
