I’ll teach you how to make this primer for less than 1/5 the price, plus how to customize it into extra glowy and truly luxurious variations. Let’s dive in!

This post (and pair of formulations) is a continuation of last month’s Super Simple Creamy Hair Conditioner with BTMS-25: 3 Ways. Today we are making two more creamy hair conditioners with BTMS-25; one is a lightweight conditioner that makes a good leave-in conditioner, and the other is much richer, better suited to rinse-out and mask applications, depending on the needs of the user. Each formulation is easy to customize and designed to help you learn even more about conditioner formulation. Let’s get conditioning!

Today we’re creating a beautiful Dry Argan Oil Hair Mist! This formulation was inspired by some of the argan oil hair oils/serums on the market like ones from Moroccanoil and OGX, and will leave your hair shiny and moisturized. 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!

This beautiful gel cream delivers a double dose of glow—both from boosted skin health and a touch of softly shimmering mica. This formulation includes some of my favourite skincare goodies to deeply hydrate the skin and support barrier function, and a coloured mica (or two) of your choice for some instant, dewy glow. Ooh la la!
