DIY Daily Conditioner Preparing to Create

It is a great idea to make sure that your equipment and packaging materials are clean and sanitized. Further, you should clean up your work area and make sure that your space is ready for you to work! This way you won’t end up with debris in your finished product. In addition, while preparing this recipe, we recommend wearing an apron, gloves, and a hairnet. Once you are ready, it is easiest to get all of your ingredients and equipment out and in your work area.

DIY Daily Conditioner Creating the Double Boiler

For those making products for the first time, before you begin creating this recipe, you will need to learn how to create a double boiler. This device will prevent the oils and butters from burning as they are melting. While you still need to occasionally stir, the double boiler will not get the ingredients nearly as hot as a regular pot alone. This means that your ingredients will melt slowly, and be less likely to scorch. So, we would highly recommend that you use a double boiler. So, retrieve two of your pots that will fit together with one inside the other. Next, add some water to the larger pot. You will need to adjust the level of the water to make sure that it touches the bottom of the little pot, but isn’t too high. If the larger pot is too full, the ingredients in the smaller pot could get ruined water boiling into the smaller pot of oils, butters, and waxes.

DIY Daily Conditioner Boiling the WaterDIY Daily Conditioner Prepare Your Distilled Water

First, you are going to need to prepare your water. You will need to boil your distilled water to destroy any bacteria in the water. So, fill a pot with some water and place it on the stove top. You are going to want to use more than 425 grams of water. Just make sure that you use enough so that you have the right amount of water after some evaporates. As you are heating the water keep an eye on the temperature. Allow the boiling water to get up to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, let the water remain at or above this temperature for 20 minutes to destroy any bacteria. After, remove it from the heat and set the water aside. However, you can move on to the next step while you are waiting for your water to finish boiling.

DIY Daily Conditioner Preparing the Butters and OilsDIY Daily Conditioner Preparing the Butters and Oils

Next, you are going to want to start heating your oils and butters. Also, make sure that you have the double boiler close by and ready to use. So, grab a small bowl and the gram scale. Now, weigh out 25 grams of your Vegetable Glycerin
25 grams of the BTMS 25 Emulsifier, 10 grams of the Coconut Oil, and 10 grams of the Jojoba Oil.
Now, you need to add these ingredients to the small pot of your double boiler. You will want to melt these ingredients and allow the temperature to drop to about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. This is an important temperature for your oils, because you need them to be around this temperature when you combine it with the water mixture.

DIY Daily Conditioner Filling the Tea BagDIY Daily Conditioner Filling the Tea Bag

Now, while you are waiting for your oils to melt, you are going to create an lovely herbal infusion with both the dried calendula flowers and lemon peel cut and sifted. This means that you need to prepare your tea bag before moving on to the next step. So, use a spoon to scoop in a half and half mixture of these two herbal ingredients. After you get both the calendula flowers and the lemon peel herbs into the tea bag, you are ready to use your filled tea bag! So, set this part of the process aside until your water is ready for you to create the final herbal infusion.

DIY Daily Conditioner Prepare the Distilled WaterDIY Daily Conditioner Prepare the Distilled Water

Once your water has been at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, you will separate out the portion that you need. So, grab your deep bowl or container and the gram scale. Now, weigh out 425 grams of your prepared distilled water into your chosen container. This will be used to create the herbal tea infusion. Also, this mixture will be the water phase of your conditioner, so it is important to weigh out the right amount.

DIY Daily Conditioner Creating the Chamomile Flowers InfusionDIY Daily Conditioner Creating the Calendula Flowers Infusion

Next, you are finally ready to create the herbal infusion. This is where you will use your bag of calendula flowers whole and lemon peel cut and sifted to create an herbal tea. So, grab your hot water and add your tea bag. Now, let the bag steep in the water for some time. While the herbs are steeping make sure to keep checking the temperature. After this herbal infusion reaches about 140 degrees Fahrenheit you are ready to move on to the next step. Just make sure that you move quickly so that the temperature doesn’t drop too low.

DIY Daily Conditioner Checking the Temperature

After both the mixtures are around 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you are ready to combine the water phase and the oil phase. If either of the two mixtures are not at the correct temperature, your mixture may not emulsify. In addition, the preservative can burn off if the ingredients are too hot. The temperature needs to be 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit when the presevative is added. So, temperature is extremely important for the next few steps.  You will need to work quickly to get everything done properly.

DIY Daily Conditioner Mixing the Water and Oils Together

Now that these two mixtures are at their correct temperatures you are ready to combine everything together! Since these two mixtures are about the same temperature, they should blend well enough to create a perfect conditioner that won’t separate. So, take your mixture of oils and butters and pour this mixture into your herbal infusion. As long as these two mixtures are around the same temperature, these two mixes should blend perfectly to create a single blended mixture.

DIY Daily Conditioner Emulsifying the Two MixturesDIY Daily Conditioner Emulsifying the Two Mixtures

Next, use the handheld stick blender to fully incorporate all the ingredients. If the mixtures are at the right temperatures, then you shouldn’t end up with separation of the oils and water. You will know whether it was mixed correctly by the consistency of the conditioner. It should begin to look creamy and feel thicker. It will begin to look more like more like real conditioner. Also, it may look a lot like lotion. if you’ve ever made homemade lotion, then you will know exactly what to look for in a conditioner. Also, you should notice a lovely light yellow hue!

DIY Daily Conditioner Adding in the Fragrance Oil and Preservative

After, we will be ready to add in the Optiphen preservative, the pure vitamin E oil, and the Goldie Dreadlocks Fragrance Oil. These will be the last ingredients that you will need to complete this mixture! But, make sure that the mixture is still between 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit before you mix in the ingredients. Waiting for the mixture to drop to this temperature will make sure that the Optiphen and the fragrance don’t burn off. Otherwise, you could end up losing the positive impacts that this additive has on the product. Plus, at this point in the process you should have a well blended conditioner.

DIY Daily Conditioner Filling the 16 oz BottlesDIY Daily Conditioner Filling the 16 oz Bottles

Now, you are ready to fill your white 16 oz. bottles! All you need to do is wait for your conditioner to cool to room temperature. Your conditioner is finally complete and ready for you to package. So, fill up your gallon Ziploc bag with this finished mixture. At this point you may want to have two of the bottles open and ready to use. Then, place the corner of the bag over the opening of one bottle. You want to make sure you will have control over the bag before you cut, as it may come out quickly. Also, as you begin filling the bottles you may want to lightly tap the bottle on the counter. This should help reduce the air bubbles.

DIY Daily Conditioner Using Your Finished Product

Finally, your homemade conditioner is finished! This diy hair product can be used exactly the same way as a commercially purchased conditioner. So, you can simply use this diy conditioner the exact same way you would use that product. Also, it may be even more effective in bringing out your blonde if you can leave your diy conditioner in longer. If you don’t want to add more time to your typical shower, then you can simply leave the conditioner in as you do everything else that you need, like shave or use body wash. This way you don’t rinse out the hair care product immediately and it has more time to sink in and work for your hair. So, the conditioner will have more time to nourish and lighten. So, you will have a head of hair that is moisturized and blonder!
