Hello everyone.  I’m an avid international traveler who travels with carry-on luggage only.  As a woman of color with lots of thick hair, those little 3-ounce carry-on bottles are nowhere near adequate for me.  Is it feasible to create a dry hair conditioner that can be hydrated once I’m at my destination?  After looking through the list of ingredients, I’ve narrowed it down to hyaluronic acid since it is water soluble.  Would it be possible to dissolve the hyaluronic acid to water and then use that as a base to add additional oil-soluble ingredients such as ALA and ceramides?  Any guidance you can provide will be well appreciated.  Thank you.

Hello,

Unfortunately, I don't really know of a formula like this. Using hyaluronic acid and hydrating it with water when you get to your destination would create a gel, but this wouldn't really do anything for your hair. You could add the hyaluronic acid gel to your scalp to moisturize it, but it would have no cleansing agents and I don't know what it would do to the texture of the hair. Also, this would be a water gel so oil-soluble ingredients would not dissolve in it. In addition to that, you would need to use it all because it would be un-preserved, meaning it will only last maybe two days. I'm sorry that we don't have a formula like this for you.

Thanks,
Kathryn

Thank you for taking the time to explain this to me.  I think I will focus on possibly formulating something with dried seaweed and see if that works.  Thank you again.
