I attempted making the natural hair conditioner recipe with the coconut oil as my carrier and for some reason my end result was good but not the appearance I thought it should have. Very runny and small pieces of waxy particles. What can I do different so this does not happen again?A:
Was your emulsifying wax completely melted so there were no little flecks left? Did you melt your coconut oil completely before mixing it with the other ingredients? Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so if your bathroom is cool, maybe that's causing the lumps.
You could try using fractionated coconut oil, which is liquid at room temperature. Or switch to another kind of vegetable oil, like grapeseed.
This hair conditioner recipe
, although the best of a bunch I've tried, is still not the greatest recipe ever. Sigh...
I find that grapeseed oil makes it lighter and weighs my hair down less over time.
I hope that helps!
