Vernita's Hair Serum

Vernita called the other day asking for help in formulating a hair product that would help tame, calm and hydrate her hair. She is of African American decent and has really struggled finding a long term product. Her frustration is understandable. She wanted something that would make her hair more manageable but not look or feel greasy. Let’s head to the kitchen to see what we can stir up!I used Cyclomethicone in this recipe to reduce the oily feeling of the hair serum and to also increase the spreadability of the serum. We want to oils to coat the hair without having to be applied heavily or overworking the hair. The last thing Vernita needs is additional stresses for her hair.

I also use Argan Oil in this formulation. Argan Oil is light, penetrating and best of all, it is not greasy. Just what we need for this formulation!

Another product that was added to this formulation was High Melt Point Shea Butter. I wanted Shea Butter to give exotic and luxurious feel. I used the High Melt Point Shea Butter because I knew the Shea Butter would solidify in small particles in the serum but I didn’t want any fractionation to create a grainy feeling in the serum. I wanted it to be as smooth as possible.

I also added Isopropyl Myristate to this formulation. Isopropyl Myristate reduces the oily greasy feeling of the serum. While Vernita wants something to help tame and protect her hair with out feeling greasy. Isopropyl Myristate is here to help!

I put this serum into a 1 oz bottle. You could put it in a bottle with a special treatment pump, or if you want larger amounts, you could use a regular pump.
