In this post I’ll be teaching you how to make three different emulsified, rinse-out Super Simple Creamy Hair Conditioner formulations using BTMS-25. All three formulations are really easy to make, and they build on one another. The first one is the simplest with just three ingredients; the second one adds two ingredients; and the third one adds two more. If you’ve never made hair conditioner before, or you’re looking to learn how to start customizing your own conditioner formulations, this is a great place to start!

Today’s Candlelight Rich Hair Mask is a decadent, rich emulsion designed to moisturize and condition the hair. I thought it was a brilliant fit for our indulgent Candlelight theme. I incorporated feedback I’ve received on previous hair mask formulations from Bees with drier hair types and worked with a curly-haired friend to develop and test this formulation. It features a large, rich oil phase and some wonderful moisturizing ingredients. How you’ll want to use this formulation will depend a lot on your particular hair type, but more on that later!

This Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Hair Serum is part leave-in hair conditioner, part hair serum. It features hydrating and luxurious hyaluronic acid, volume-boosting hydrolyzed rice protein, and ultra-light Neossance® Hemisqualane—I am loving working a few pumps through my hair from about the ears down. My ends are pretty dry these days as I am well overdue for a trim, but this serum perks it right up! And, since it’s a bi-phase serum it’s incredibly simple to make while still getting the benefit of both oil and water-soluble ingredients. Let’s dive in!

It’s super simple to make (just five ingredients!) and I’ve included instructions to alter the formulation to perfectly suit your hair. Let’s get started!
