shampoo problem

Hi Friends
I did shampoo with this recipe
10% texapon 70%
3% luramide 
3% betaine 
1.25% polyquatrnium 10
1.5% NACL salt 
2% uberlan 2200
the foam so good 
but the problem it did dandruff in hair 
so what is the material percentage make this problem 
and what is the solution

    I don't see anything in the formula that would cause dandruff.  To figure out what is causing the problem you should do a knockout experiment.
  • ok 

    but what about the percentage 10 and 3 and 3 and other is it high  ? 
    is it need decrease or increase ?

    I don't know what you are talking about.

    If the ingredients are giving you the results you want then they are not high. If you are not getting results you want then you either increase or decrease the levels.  The exact percent you use depends on many factors including the ingredient you are using, the way it was made and the quality of the raw material source. You have to experiment to optimize the level of ingredients.  Start with a knockout experiment.
  • Which kind of shampoo you want to develop? Anti-dandruff or else other? please mention.
  • We can't predict to decrease or increase % of ingredients as most of the ingredients affect viscosity of shampoo. I do agree with Perry, it needs more trials. First decide which kind of property you are looking for your shampoo.
