Getting lumps while diluting your conditioner? You might be mixing your conditioner the wrong way. If you put cold water first then conditioner, you will really have a hard time mixing your conditioner with water not unless you use a blender or a mixer. The conditioner will not totally dissolve in water. You will get lumps.
The proper way to dilute your conditioner is to use a hot water. Dissolve your conditioner using a small amount of hot water. And when it is dissolved completely, you can now add cold water to it and mix again.
Another useful tips about conditioner:
- When using conditioner, you need to wet the coat using lukewarm water to keep the hair shafts open so that the conditioner can penetrate into the cuticles and the cortex.
- If you use tap water in diluting your conditioner, the solution should be used within 24 hours.
- If you use distilled water in making the solution, you can use it up to a week or two provided that the container used has been properly cleaned.
