- Double boiler (a pot inside a pot works well, two x5 litres is ideal).
- Electronic scales
- Silicone spatula
- Measuring cups
Get your double boiler up to temperature then add all ingredients apart from the fragrance and colour (if using).
Once your ingredients are melted, add 10ml of fragrance or essential oil and colour (add small amounts of colour until desired colour is achieved).
Next, pour the mix into the mould of your choice.
Once cooled (about 20mins) simply release it out of your mould.
This recipe will make approx four 50g conditioner bars.
To make 40 bars just multiply recipe ingredients by 10.
This recipe is designed so you can add an extra 10% oil of your choice without effecting the hardness.
The PH can be adjusted to suit using citric acid or potassium hydroxide but the finished bar should already have a PH Balance of 5.5 -6.5 which is perfect for hair.
An electric stove top can be used with a pot but be careful not to get ingredients too hot, 70°c max.
