thank you KenyafromCT! Recipe and photo: Post #101 to see photo of the actual conditioner Post #107 to see photo of the ingredients https://longhaircareforum.com/threa...tioning-challenge.807125/page-4#post-23479637 Ingredients: 1. 200 ml of coconut cream or coconut milk 2. 1 teaspoon of guar gum ( can put in more, up to 1 tablespoon.) 3. 1/4 cup of oil- I prefer peanut oil because it is so greasy. 4. 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid (check acidity with ph paper to ensure your mixture is not too acidic.) Mix in blender. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes as it will thicken up. If it is too thick, add more water or aloe vera juice/gel. If it is too thin add more guar gum, but pinches at a time. Once it is mixed up, add in extra olive oil and honey to 'doctor it up' like we do any conditioner we might buy in the store. This conditioner can be heated in the microwave or on the stove top before application onto the head. A basic conditioner has two (2) main purposes: 1. To de-swell the hair strand/shaft (we erroneously [me too!] call this closing the cuticle or lowering the cuticle) 2. To lubricate the hair strands to lower friction (we call this rubbing). I selected the the coconut milk and peanut oil due to their high fat content. Peanut oil has high omega 9, like in our skin. (Lubricant components) The guar gum serves as the binder as coconut milk has water and will not naturally mix with the oil. It adds nothing beneficial to the hair and is I included as a component of the formulation. The citric acid de- swells the hair.(Closing the cuticle component) I use all I make at once. I mix with cheap conditioner to give more slip. Also, it smells like coconut milk. ***The ingredients are in French because I live in France. You should be able to find coconut products in any store. The guar gum and peanut oil are usually found in speciality or health food stores. The citric acid may be the hardest to find. You can use apple cider vinegar instead of citric acid but I can't tell you in what quantities because I use the citric acid.
