While perusing NaturallyCurly.com, I came across a thread on Behentrimonium Methosulfate. 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)
I’m pretty sure this is why my hair fell in love with Blended Beauty’s Curl Quenching Conditioner (my wallet made it fall out of love). Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment also contains BMSulfate, but Hello Hydration contains it’s cheaper cousin.
Remember that every head is different. If you’re having a hard time detangling, try a conditioner that contains this ingredient and see how it treats ya!
