    I wouldn't use BTMS-50 in a leave-in conditioner. That would be too heavy on the hair in my opinion. But certainly not more than 1%.  Probably less.

    Cationic surfactants are usually used between %1 and %2. No one uses %10 at anything

    oh wow and the only reason why I purchased it because a lot of people in my industry have that in theirs what do you recommend instead? and I know its a emulsifier to make the water and oil mix so that's another reason I purchased

    THANK YOU SO SO MUCH because someone told me they used it at 6% so i should use it at the same but I was like I have to come ask the experts over at chemist corner

    %6 has %3 active surfactant. I have oily scalp andFor me %3 active cationic surfactant is a bit over conditioning. Maybe for them it is ok. 

    Another reason for %6 my be to get enough viscosity. That you can achieve by adding fatty alcohol and it will cost you less too.
