Method:

  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a stainless steel bowl and place over a saucepan of boiling water (bain marie). Bring up to a temperature of over 75°C.
  • When the Stage 1 is over 75°C, add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients to a larger stainless steel bowl. Swap the bowls over so the larger bowl is in the double boiler.
  • Pour the Stage 1 ingredients into the Stage 2 ingredients and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Ensure the mix is still over 75°C and stir continually for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove bowl from the double boiler and put into a pan of cold water to cool it down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the cream or lotion is below 40°C, add the remaining stage 3 ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“Good news! Yes you can. The reason is because the oil and butter are all suitable for use on the hair (not all oils and butters work well with the hair), but mainly because the recipe uses Emulsifying Wax BTMS 25. This is a cationic emulsifier, which means it has the ability to bind the fat stage onto and into the hair shaft, yet still rinse away afterwards. It’s an excellent emulsifier and a great idea of yours to use it on your hair as a daily hair conditioner and, as well, as a deep hair mask.”
