Deep Hair Conditioner

Completely cooled deep hair conditioner on my finger.

Completely cooled deep hair conditioner on my finger.


After making the Simple Daily Hair Conditioner, I started thinking about formulating another conditioner that would work for those who need a little extra conditioning, help with moisture retention and even help detangling! I started by changing the Simple Daily Hair Conditioner formula to include ingredients I thought would be helpful in a deep hair conditioner.

I kept a few ingredients for the same reasons that I had used them in the Simple Daily Hair Conditioner. I used the same amounts of Conditioning Emulsifier, Horsetail Grass Extract, Chamomile Extract, French Lime Blossom Fragrance and Liquid Germall Plus. I also used Wheat Protein, but I increased the amount used to 2%.

I knew I wanted to use both Dimethicone and Cyclomethicone for the conditioning that they provide hair. I also had a few other reasons too! I added Dimethicone as it has been noted to help with fly-away prevention, makes for easy brushing of hair and gives hair a shine. I chose Cyclomethicone because it has been noted to help make conditioners feel less sticky and help evenly spread products without making the hair look greasy.

I chose to add Macadamia Butter as an emollient oil that would help hair feel softer after the conditioner was used. I didn’t want the conditioner to be too heavy, so I added Colorless Jojoba to help keep the balance of oils in the hair even after using.

Melted ingredients.

Melted ingredients.

Weigh all ingredients except the additives (extracts, fragrance and Liquid Germall Plus) into a microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add the additives once the temperature drops to approximately 120° F in the mixing bucket. Stir gently until completely mixed. When this conditioner cools enough for the additives to be added, the texture is already very thick. I would recommend transferring to a plastic bag. You can cut a corner of the bag and pipe the conditioner into containers just like a bag of frosting! Once the conditioner is in the containers, cap and label. I would recommend using Grand Oval containers or bottles that use a High Viscosity Pump for this conditioner.

Hair Conditioner Notes: This heavy hair conditioner is very thick and only requires a small amount to be used. I tried this conditioner on my hair and was not very surprised to find that my super fine and oily hair looked even oilier and dirty after washing and then air drying. In the interest of testing, I was able to ask Jerry to use some on his hair for me to see how it worked on coarse Chinese hair. There was a massive difference! Jerry’s hair looked clean, shiny and relaxed while feeling soft. I will probably make another batch and ask some of my girl friends who have dry, curly and/or coarse hair.

I would like to hear your opinions about this conditioner! Would you try this?
