I'm going down the road of making my own hair products and although there are so many resources online, I'm wondering if anyone out there has read or can suggest any book that can teach me something more about hair products formulation, production, and hair "science" in general.
I have found, used and modified a number of recipes for my own products, but I would like to learn more about how it actually chemically works! Any help is appreciated.

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)

Hehe, that blog is like my mantra! I pretty much memorized the recipes with trial, error and editing. and all the science-y part is great too!

But I would have liked some other source, too, to expand my knowledge.

I'm with you on this one. I started to do some research a while ago and got so overwhelmed.
2c-3a - coarse - normal-high porosity - high density - growing out to donate

NP/LP: KMF Whenever Conditioner/ YTCucs
RO/LI: Sevi Pumpkin Seed DC / CJ Argan & Olive Oil, KCKT, YTBbs
DT: Coconut Oil + scalp massage
OIL/STYLER: SM Elixir / KCCC
COLOR: henna, amla & indigo
Indeed! There's so much to know, and so many different sources that offer although AMAZING information, very definite resources. I mean, specific subjects. That in turn makes my knowledge very fragmented.

I found a few Italian books on this, very thorough, but first of all they're very outdated and second, I want to have English resources because I want to build my knowledge in a worldwide language.
