Here we are at the second part of the “Can you recognize a good shampoo?”
We have learnt the basics of understanding a shampoo based on ANIONIC surfactants and, in the specific, based on the combination SLES and Cocamidopropyl Betaine, but there is so much more we need to learn! 😀
So today we learn about another surfactant-combination we easily find in shampoos: combination of glucosides!
The glucosides are a wide variety of NON-IONIC (this means they don’t have “electric charge”) surfactants which are usually easily biodegradable; therefore many bio-shampoos contain this combination of surfactants.
The most common glucosides which you will find in an INCI are: Lauryl Glucoside, Decyl Glucoside, Coco Glucoside, and Caprylyl/Capric Glucoside.

This is my Christmas gift: a very simple recipe for a Two Phase Leave-in Hair Conditioner!
You need just one prince ingredient: Cetrimonium Chloride!
As you know this is a cationic surfactant with very high conditioning properties.
[if you are new to my website you can check the Index which contains all the recipes and explanations about formulating cosmetics. You will also find a list of websites where you can purchase cosmetic ingredients online!]
This Hair Conditioner is formulated for my hair-type: long and very thin, they tangle easily and they grease easily (so I added close to no grease to not make my hair get heavy).
At the end of the recipe I will add some variations so you can modify it according to your hair-type! 😉
