Here’s a blurb from an article I posted a couple of weeks ago:
While perusing NaturallyCurly.com, I came across a thread on Behentrimonium Methosulfate (BMS). I first became aware of BMSulfate a couple of years ago when Spiral mentioned that she seeks out conditioners with this ingredient high on the list to effectively condition and detangle her curls. I’ve found that my hair is a fan too! It’s one of the mildest detangling ingredients out there, and is made from non-genetically modified rapeseed oil (you read right…rapeseed).
‘This scientifically sophisticated ingredient is renowned for its superior detangling ability, without causing build-up on the hair. Unlike other hair detanglers, which are known for their irritancy, behentrimonium methosulfate is extremely mild, being recommended for use in baby products which are left on the skin. It is superior in effectiveness and mildness to it’s commonly used cheaper cousin, behentrimonium chloride. It is not a sulfate.‘ (http://www.upurea.com/ingredients_a-i/?___store=us)
Many of you asked for a list of conditioners containing BMS. Sorry for the delay, but check out the link below. It’s not a comprehensive list by any means, but gives you over 100 options, complete with hazard ratings!
My Fav BC conditioners (BM’s cheaper cousin)
–DevaCare One Condition
–Herbal Essence Hello Hydration
For those of you that go hard, here’s a link to purchase BMS to add to your concoctions! I know nothing about this, so do your research!! They did provide a sample hair conditioner recipe. Good luck mixtresses!
