Prepare Your Water for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe Prepare Your Water for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe 

Before you work to create this diy conditioner recipe, you will need to sanitize the water for your homemade conditioner recipe. In order to do this you are going to boil the water to destroy any bacteria that may have be present. Since you are going to need at least 425 grams of the sanitized water to create your conditioner. Since some water will boil away during this process, you will want to have some extra water to your pot to ensure that you have enough water for your diy conditioner recipe. You will need to heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have the water at this temperature, you will need to keep the water there for at least twenty minutes. Now that your water has been completely sanitized, you are ready to create your scented bath and body recipe!

Create the Double Boiler for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Next, you are going to want to create the double boiler for this homemade conditioner recipe. While you will still want to stir periodically as your cosmetic ingredients are melting, the double boiler will be useful for preventing your oils and butters from scorching. To create your own double boiler you will need two pots that will fit into each other. In the larger pot, you will add a bit of water. This will be heated to a boil and used to control how fast the cosmetic ingredients will be heated. Also, you will need to add more water if too much evaporates away. Next, place your smaller pot into your pot with water. You will want to make sure that you add enough water to touch the small pot but not too much water where it could boil over into your conditioner making ingredients. Now, you are ready to add you cosmetic ingredients to melt in your double boiler.

Prepare Your Cosmetic Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipePrepare Your Cosmetic Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Now, you are going to need to prepare your cosmetic making ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe. So, you are going to need to use your double boiler to melt these ingredients. You will need to weigh out and add 25 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams of BTMS 25, and 20 grams of Argan Oil to the inner pot of your double boiler. While the double boiler will help to prevent scorching, you will still want to stir periodically as the ingredients are melting. After all your cosmetic oils and butters have melted, you can remove them from the heat. Then, you will want to wait for these ingredients to cool until they reach about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Customizing the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

While we have provided a hair conditioner recipe that you can follow, you can customize the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe with a few changes without needing to reformulate the entire recipe. Depending on your hair type, different cosmetic oils may be better for your hair than others. So, you may want to change out some of the cosmetic oils in this wholesale conditioner recipe. Since we used a total of 20 grams of cosmetic oil in this recipe, you can switch out the type of oil used for one that would work better using the same amount. For instance, you could change the 20 grams of the Argan Oil that is already in the recipe to 20 grams of Coconut Oil. So, you wouldn’t add the Argan Oil and would add the Coconut Oil to the cosmetic recipe instead. If you are interested in picking a new cosmetic oil for your hair care recipe, then you can read about different oils for various hair types in our Best Oils for Your Hair Type blog.

Emulsifying the Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeEmulsifying the Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Once your cosmetic ingredients have reached the proper temperature, you can move on to emulsifying the water and cosmetic oils together for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe. First of all, you are going to weigh out the 425 grams of the sanitized water. You will want to have both the water and melted oils to be about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your ingredients reach this temperature, you will be able to add your melted cosmetic oils to the mixing bowl of water. Now, you will want to use your stick blender to fully emulsify these wholesale cosmetic ingredients.

Adding Cosmetic Ingredients to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeAdding Cosmetic Ingredients to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Before adding the next cosmetic ingredients to this conditioner recipe, you will need to wait for your emulsified mixture to cool down. Your mixture will need to be around 120 degrees Fahrenheit before you can continue with the process. After reaching this temperature, you can add in 5 grams of the Optiphen Preservative and 5 grams of the Vitamin E Oil. After adding these cosmetic ingredients to the mixture, you can use your stick blender to fully incorporate all of these cosmetic ingredients.

Scenting the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeScenting the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Now you are ready to add the scent to your hair conditioner recipe. You will need to weigh and add 26 grams of the Cancan Type Fragrance Oil. This gorgeous scented oil has a fresh mandarin aroma that is balanced with hints of apple peel. Further, this feminine fragrance continues with a floral accord of jasmine, violet and lily. These scents blend to balance with notes of woodland fern and the hints of berry at the heart of this scent. Finally, a sensual blend of cashmere musk, golden amber and vanilla bean creates a romantic sweetness that surrounds the floralcy. After adding this scented oil to your mixture, you will want to stick blend everything together.

At this point, your conditioner will be still be thin. So, you will need to wait to let this mixture cool to room temperature. As your lotion cools it will thicken to the right consistency. Then, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Preparing the Lotion Pumps for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipePreparing the Lotion Pumps for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

While you are waiting for your conditioner to cool down to room temperature, you can resize your lotion pumps. In total, you are going to need two of these pumps. To determine how much you need to cut you can stand the pump up next to your 8 ounce plastic lotion bottles wholesale. You will want to trim the pump so that it is long enough to reach the bottom of the bottle and short enough to allow you to screw on the cap. Once your lotion pump has been trimmed, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Filling Cosmetic Plastic Bottles for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeFilling Cosmetic Plastic Bottles for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

As the mixture cools down, you will find that the homemade conditioner will begin to thicken up. Once the hair care mixture reaches room temperature, you can begin filling your lotion bottles wholesale. You can use a funnel to more easily transfer the conditioner into the 8 oz plastic bottles with pump. You will be able to fill up two of these bullet bottles with this bath and body recipe. Once both of your wholesale conditioner bottles are filled up, you are ready to add the lotion pump lids.

Decorating the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Bottles

Now, you are going to be decorating the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner bottles for this cosmetic recipe. Each bottle will have a bling ribbon and an acrylic jewel added. So, you are going to need to warm up your hot glue gun to adhere these decorations to the wholesale packaging supplies.

Adding the Bling Ribbon to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

First you are going to be adding the bling ribbon to your wholesale plastic bottle. So, you will want to wrap the ribbon around the circumference of the bottle. Then, cut enough ribbon for it to reach all the way around the middle of the bottle. After cutting this ribbon, you will use your glue gun to adhere both ends of the ribbon to the bottle. Once the glue dries, you will need to repeat this step with your other cosmetic bottle. Then, you can move on to the next step.

Adding the Acrylic Jewels to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Next, you will be adding the acrylic jewels to your cosmetic bottles. You will want to line up the purple acrylic jewel on the bling ribbon. Then, you will need to glue the bling gem into place. Be sure to secure one of the bling jewels to each of the cosmetic bottles.

Using Your Finished Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Clean and Sanitize

Before you begin creating your own conditioner you should make sure that you clean all of your equipment as well as your work space. This will ensure that your finished product is safe to use. All you need to do is wash and sanitize your bowls, mixer, and other equipment with soap and water. This is a simple preparation that may save you the heartache of accidentally getting your product dirty. While this won’t always ruin your product, you want to keep your conditioner, as well as any other body product, as clean as you possibly can.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Creating the Double Boiler

Also, you will need to know how to create a double boiler for this recipe. This is simple to do once it is learned. So, grab your smaller pot and the larger pot. Make sure that the small one will fit comfortably inside the large one. Then, add water to your larger pot. The water level should be just high enough to reach the bottom of the small pot. Just be careful not to have the water too high, as this could boil over into the smaller pot. After your water level is right, you can heat the water on the stove top. Once the water reaches a boil, add your small pot in, which will contain the ingredients that you wish to melt. By placing your ingredients in a double boiler it prevents the oils from burning that can occur from direct heat.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Preparing the WaterHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Preparing the Water

Now, you are going to boil some distilled water. You can have this heating as you fill your tea bag. This way you will save time! So, fill your medium sized pot with plenty of distilled water. You will need at least 425 grams of boiled water, so make sure that you have more than this amount in your pot. Remember, a portion of this water is going to evaporate. This means that you are going to have to add more than the amount you need. Once your water reaches a boil watch the temperature. You will need the water to be at or above 180 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. This will destroy any bacteria that may be in your water.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Melting Your Butters and OilsHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Melting Your Butters and Oils

While your water is boiling, you can weigh out your butters and oils. So, grab your small bowl and the scale. Now, weigh 25 grams of the Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams of the BTMS 25, 20 grams of the Safflower Oil, and 5 grams of the Vitamin E Oil into your small bowl. Melt these ingredients in a double boiler. After this all melts, set on low so it doesn’t drop below 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You are going to need these melted and between 120 and 140 degrees when your Hibiscus Flowers infusion is at a similar temperature.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Recipe Filling the Tea BagHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Filling the Tea Bag

Next, you are going to fill up your tea bag with an herb. To do this you need to get the Hibiscus Flowers Whole and a single tea bag. Then, scoop your Hibiscus Flowers into the tea bag until it reaches almost the top. Just make sure that you are able to close the tea bag after it is filled. You want to have enough of your dried flowers in the bag to create a Hibiscus Flower infusion, but not too much. If you can’t securely close the tea bag, then your conditioner can end up with small bits of flowers. While this won’t hurt your recipe, you will have little chunks in your product. So, just make sure you can shut your tea bag all the way!

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Weigh Out the Distilled WaterHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Weigh Out the Distilled Water

After your water has been at or above the specified temperature for 20 minutes, you will separate out the portion that you need. So, grab your deep bowl or container and your scale. Also, make sure that your scale is set to grams. Now, weigh out 425 grams of your boiled water into your chosen container. This will be used to create the Hibiscus Flowers infusion and will act as the water phase for your conditioner. So, it is important to weigh out the right amount. Furthermore, those that ran out of boiled water can just boil some additional water the same way as before. It is a bit time consuming, but is worth the effort as it will reduce contamination.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Creating the Hibiscus Flowers InfusionHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Creating the Hibiscus Flowers Infusion

Now, you are ready to make your herbal infusion! This is where you create a sort of tea with your herbs. So, the properties of the herbs can be transferred into the water. Thus, you can utilize all the benefits of Hibiscus Flowers without including the actual flowers or the powder. Simply add the filled tea bag to your water. Then, let the bag of Hibiscus Flowers Whole soak in the water, which will begin to turn to a reddish hue! Make sure to leave the tea bag in the water until the infusion has reached the right temperature.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Checking the TemperatureHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Checking the Temperature

The temperatures of both the oil based ingredients and water based ingredients are extremely important for the next few steps. Let’s go over this a bit before we move on so that anyone who has not made this type of product before can understand the importance. Before you can combine your oils and water they must be between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. It must be above 120 degrees so the oils and water will properly emulsify, or mix together. You do not want your oils and water in the conditioner to separate once it is finished. However, the temperature can’t be above 140 degrees or the Optiphen Preservative will burn off. So, make sure to keep an eye on the temperature of your mixture. 

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Combine Your Two MixturesHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Combine Your Two Mixtures

Next, you will combine your water based mixture and your oil based mixture. So, you can go ahead and add your oils to your hibiscus flower infusion. After all your melted oils have been added to your water based mixture you are ready to move on to the next step. But, you need to move quickly at this point to make sure the oils and water emulsify properly.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Emulsifying ProcessHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Emulsifying Process

Now, you are going to use the stick blender to mix everything together. Quickly grab your hand held mixer and blend your water and oil based mixtures together. As you work the mixture should start to become a creamy sort of consistency. Also, you will notice a light pink color. This is the emulsification process, which is where your oils and butters combine to form a single mixture. If you have mixed well at the right temperature, then your mixture should not separate into oil and water. After you feel that you have blended everything together well, check the temperature of your mixture.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Adding Fragrance and Optiphen PreservativeHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Adding Fragrance and Optiphen Preservative

Once your mixture has reached about 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you can add in your fragrance oil and the optiphen. So, pour in 26 grams of the NG Viva la Juicee Fragrance Oil and 5 grams of the Optiphen Preservative. Now, mix these ingredients into your conditioner well. You should use the handheld mixer or stick blender again to make sure these ingredients are fully incorporated. After, your mixture will be complete! All you have to do now is allow your conditioner to cool to room temperature.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Filling Your BottlesHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Filling Your Bottles

Finally, you are ready to package up your Hibiscus Conditioner Recipe! So, grab your gallon Ziploc bag. Then, fill up your Ziploc with your entire homemade hair conditioner. Get your 16 oz. White PET Bullet Bottles ready. Then, put the corner of your bag over the bottle and cut the tip with your scissors. Now, fill up your bottle and be careful not to go to fast as it is easy to overfill your bottle. Also, you can lightly tap your bottle on your work surface to reduce air bubbles and better fill your bottle. After your bottle is filled, you can put on your White Lotion Pumps 24/410. Now, your conditioner is finished!

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Using Your ProductHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Using Your Product

Now that your product is completed it is ready to use! Your conditioner is very simple to use. Just use your homemade conditioner the same way that you would use any store bought conditioner. This diy daily conditioner can be used every day and would be perfect for an everyday moisturizer. Like any conditioner, it will work better if you leave the product in longer. For example, you can leave the conditioner in your hair as you shave or wash the rest of your body. This will allow the ingredients to sink deeper into your hair.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner Before Using Your Homemade ProductHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner Before Using Your Homemade Product

Personally, I used this product in my own hair and loved the results. I naturally have strawberry blonde hair. While my hair is mostly blonde, I have some red hair sprinkled in. I wanted to use this recipe to bring out my red hair and lead to a more of a red tint. So, I used my homemade hibiscus conditioner every night for a full week. The only thing that I changed is swapping out my own store bought conditioner with this homemade hair care product! I love the scent and enjoyed how much softer my hair felt. However, I focused mostly on the impact the Hibiscus has on the color of my hair.

Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner After Using the Product for a WeekHomemade Hibiscus Conditioner After Using the Product for a Week

This hair product worked exactly how I wanted it to! The lovely Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner was perfect for achieving the color that I wanted. While this conditioner recipe won’t dye your hair bright red, it is perfect for bringing out the natural beauty of red hair! While I am not a full redhead, I do have enough highlights to notice a change in this part of my hair. Using this conditioner brought out the natural red tones in my hair and led to a deeper red tint to my hair. I truly love this conditioner!
