Add phase A into a disinfected glass beaker and mix the polyquaternium well until dissolved. Heat phase B to 150F/65C and melt the ingredients. Combine phase A and B and stir. When cool (below 100F/40C) add phase C and stir again.

Properties
The conditioners, polyquaternium-10 and quaternium-87 give a smooth appearance to the hair and improve wet comb and detangling. The surfactant combination is mild.
