Homemade Hair Conditioner Recipe Help

by Carrie
(Saskatoon SK Canada)

Q: Hello, I've tried the hair conditioner recipe twice and it keeps separating. Should I warm the water even more?

Thanks, Carrie

A: Actually, I've recently discovered the joys of stearic acid (a natural vegetable emulsifier) and it seems to solve the separation problem.

I'd suggest adding a teaspoon of stearic acid to the recipe and see if that does it. If not, increase the amount to 2 teaspoons. Just add it to the oil with the emulsifying wax. I'll mess around with the recipe some more and post my results.

Hope that helps - good luck!
