How to Make Orange and Rosemary Conditioner Bars

Conditioner bars are the perfect way to make traveling simpler and reduce plastic waste! These bars are enriched with nourishing coconut oil and cocoa butter and hydrating glycerin to moisturize your hair, leaving it shiny and soft. The Natural Hair Conditioner Flakes are easy to melt and make a hard, long-lasting bar that leaves your hair conditioned and easy to comb. Conditioner bars are great for all types of hair and so easy to use. Simply swipe the bar across your shampooed hair once or twice for light conditioning, or several times for deeper conditioning. Because they are bar-shaped, it’s so easy to target the ends of your hair!

This recipe makes 200g of conditioner bar base. Choose a mold that has rounded edges and fits nicely in the palm of your hand. This recipe is very concentrated and makes a long-lasting bar, so it is not necessary to make bars any larger than about 3.5oz (100g).
