Help with these mixes
I would like to make a hair cream not really a butter something a bit fluffy as hair moisturizer. Do you think these mixes (a,b,c,d,e,f,g
)would be good?
I don't want it to be greasy, I know the oils I chose are not greasy at all. But, if I add a Water Part that might contain oils like Donna Marie Honey & Aloe Curling Jelly, do you think it can be greasy?
Also, I don't want any hold, which gel might add hold?
Will I need and emulsifier(lecithin,wax,...) to keep the mix together?
Do I need a preservative?
Which mix would be better for a 4a/4b, dry ends, fine strands but dense that needs moisture?
Which mix would work best in winter and summer?
Which mix will add too many proteins?
Is coconut butter considered a protein?
Do you think I am better off without the gels?
Do I have too many butters?
Illipe butter ( To harden, will add a bit)
Cupuacu butter (Butter that will be mainly used)
Unrefined Coconut butter
Camellia kissi oil
