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.

This hair product worked exactly how I wanted it to! The lovely Homemade Hibiscus Conditioner was perfect for achieving the color that I wanted.

If the water is close to the rim of the small pot, then remove some of your water. However, you will want the water to touch the bottom of the smaller pot. In a later step you will place the double boiler on the stove and add the oils to your smaller pot.

Aloe Cucumber Hair Conditioner Kit Water Phase

First, we are going to need to prepare the water. So, retrieve one of your pots that is not part of your double boiler. You will need 425 grams of distilled water for this recipe. So, you will want to make sure to boil a little extra as some will evaporate while heating. Heat the water until it reaches at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Hold this boil for at least twenty minutes before removing it from the heat. This will ensure that any bacteria is destroyed. While you heat the water, prepare the oil phase.

Aloe Cucumber Hair Conditioner Kit Oil Phase

Next, you will need to prepare the oils and emulsifier. So, tare the weight of one of your bowls on a scale. Next, weigh out 25 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams of BTMS 25 Emulsifier, 5 grams of Vitamin E Oil, and 20 grams of Sweet Almond Oil. Then, you will add these ingredients to the smaller pot of the double boiler to melt.  Once you have melted the oils remove them from the heat to cool to about 140 degrees.

Aloe Cucumber Hair Conditioner Kit Emulsification Phase

Before you begin your emulsification stage, I would like to note, your temperature are very important in this step. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, if the temperatures of both your oils and water are not at the same temperatures, you will not get a proper emulsion. This means that you will end up with a conditioner that separates. Secondly, if you add your Optiphen above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, it will be too hot and your preservative will burn off. On the other hand, if you add it below 120 degrees, it will separate out of your conditioner.

Now, let’s begin putting it all together.  You are going to combine the water and oil to create your homemade conditioner. Before combining make sure that both the oils and water have cooled to about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, weigh out 425 grams of your boiled water into a large bowl and add the melted oils as well. Quickly, use your mixer to blend these ingredients. As they emulsify the mixture will become white and begin to thicken slightly. After this is thoroughly mixed, let it cool to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Now, add the Optiphen Preservative and the Aloe Vera Cucumber Fragrance Oil to the mix. As you mix and the conditioner cools it will begin to thicken.

Aloe Cucumber Hair Conditioner Kit Packaging Stage

Finally, your conditioner is complete and ready to package! Let your final mixture cool to room temperature before you package your product. Take your two bottles and fill them with the finished conditioner. While you can use the pipettes to fill the bottles, it may take a while. Another option is adding the conditioner to a Ziploc bag. Once you have your conditioner added, you can cut the corner and use the hole in the bag to fill the bottle.
