Why 8.7oz and not 8oz? I always make a tiny bit extra to test with

# Put PHASE A into 1st glass bowl or mason jar
# Put PHASE B into 2nd glass bowl or mason jar
# If you're using two bowls:
# Place 1st bowl over a small pot of water
# Place 2nd bowl over another small pot of water
# Heat both pots of water for 20 minutes
# If you're using two mason jars:
# Place both jars into a pot big enough for both of them to stand without touching each other. Put enough water inside the pot to last more than 20 minutes.
# Pour PHASE A (waters) into PHASE B and mix for about 2 to 5 minutes
# You should see the mix turn white
# Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes
# Add COOL DOWN ingredients and mix again
# Add to a jar. It may be too thick for a pump bottle. Use a squeeze top if you want to bottle it.
#Again, I was impressed with this mix which was an alteration from an earlier recipe. Its something I would buy in a store. The coconut milk powder made it come out light and creamy. Its works great on my dry hair. But you may not be able to tell how much you're using when applying it to wet hair.
#This would be great to make into a spray leave in condish. Just figure out how much water you want to use, then add a few hunks of this mix to it. Shake and use. If you want to make something which will last longer, add preservative to the amount of water you want to use. Then add hunks of this mix to it. Shake well.
