Place the glasses in a water bath and heat until both reach a temperature of 70°C, stirring occasionally. Once they have reached the desired temperature, they are removed from the water bath.

Phase B is added gradually, little by little (in about 8-9 servings) over phase A, while already mixing phase A. Then mix for 3 minutes. Avoid excessive aeration and foaming during mixing. To accelerate the cooling process, place the composition over a bowl of cold water and continue to mix for 3 more minutes. If the mixer can no longer cope due to the viscosity, you can continue to stir manually, vigorously.

To the composition cooled to body temperature, add the ingredients of phase C one by one, with mixing after each one The shampoo thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~5,5-6
