Check out Arcamp83’s video:


#I DO NOT use the microwave to heat anything. I have never been able to get anything to emulsify by using my microwave. Not sure why it doesn’t work for me, but it doesn’t. Just set up your makeshift double boilers (glass bowls over 2 different pots of water) and use that method

# I use a powdered preservative (Neodefend) that isn’t too heat sensitive so I add it to the water phase before heating

  1. I used this recipe but I substituted the oil phase to only castor oil cos I have very full and thick hair which high porosity, only for me to wake up and found my leave – in conditioner separated, please what could I have done wrong?. Thanks

    1. I don’t know. This is an old free recipe by a youtuber named “arcamp83”, as noted above. Maybe the percentage of castor oil you used requires a higher amount of BTMS in order to emulsify? You’re going to have to experiment to figure out what happened. If you make her recipe, please use a preservative though so you won’t have to worry about refrigeration.
