i mixed dimethicone in a shea butter and oil mix for a hair product, after a while it began 2 separate. i dont remember the amount used, it was about equal parts shea:cone. did I add 2 much cones 2 the mix?
i wanted to make a heat protectant/moisturizer. cones are used to protect against heat and although i dont have a specific recipe, my butter oil mix is always great 4 the hair. i only made a 4oz batch but wanted to come up with a concrete recipe that i can remake. it worked well i just hate having to remix when i want to use it.
yes a cone is any kind of silicone. i have not seen any recipe that i think would moisturise like mine. i just dont know what % to use. ill just remake it a few times & see what i can come up with. a heat prtectant is used when blow drying, flat ironing to prevent damage tn the hair from the excessive heat.
sounds awesome, and i'd like to learn more, since I'm now actually blow drying and using a curling iron once again. My hair doesn't take to curl very well, so when i use a curling iron i have to use it for awhile. I just cut off 12" of hair (rich thick chestnut brown) to donate to locks of love. So now that I have short hair again, i'm doing the style thing once more. Least for now until it grows out to long so i can cut and donate it once again.
