Wool Conditioner

Wool Conditioner

Yesterday we made a wool wash bar specifically for washing wool articles. Because wool requires a little extra TLC after washing to keep the fibers soft and smooth, I wanted to make a conditioner. While you could possibly use this conditioner in human hair, individuals with fine hair may find this a little too heavy for daily use. It still is a spectacular product for making the hair silky and shiny.

Wool is very similar to our own hair. Soap or shampoos clean the hair by raising the pH and attracting the dirt to water. This raises the platelets in our hair, which is why your hair can feel rough after just washing with shampoo. These raised platelets are also what cause those horrible tangles. A conditioner lowers the pH, causing the platelets to relax and form a smooth shaft of hair. This is why after using a conditioner we have soft, silky hair.

INSTRUCTIONS

Weigh everything but the Liquid Germall Plus into a microwave safe container. I like to weigh out my citric acid and other water soluble ingredients first. This makes it easier to ensure the citric acid has dissolved completely. Once everything has completely melted, use your immersion blender to mix everything completely.

Mixing Wool Conditioner

Allow the conditioner to cool below 120° F. When the mixture is below 120° F, add your preservative and mix well. From here you can package your wool conditioner. I like to use large bottles with pumps or disk tops, because they are easy to use when I am up to my elbows in wet wool.
