For those with tangle-prone hair, this sixth book in the DIY Hair Products Series is probably the most important. Every detangler recipe in the book is very different, but one is sure to be a perfect match for you. Heather’s personal favorite is the “Love Me” detangler for weak and brittle hair.
As a lover of all things natural, Heather goes into depth about the benefit of different hydrosols.
Having built up your knowledge on how to make key hair products, Heather also explains the structure of hair itself so you have a better understanding of “the thing” you’re making products for.
How Does The DIY Hair Product Series Work?
Knowledge on formulating is built up from one book to the next.
