OK SO I GOT THE INGREDIENTS OFF OF (DUHH) KILLER STRANDS BLOG . COM . . . .
Lotioncrafter 1550 Phenyl Trimethicone
Lotioncrafter LC8515 or LC995 Cyclomethicone
5.0 0.17 Fragrance ( your choice - fun part!)
Don't let this mini recipe throw you. Its virtually 5 Grams of Trimethicone added with 495 grams of Cyclomethicone
495 Grams is 16 1/2 ounces ! 16 ounces of Cyclomethicone (a helluva lot) costs $7.75 !! Most Silicone Serums are 2 ounces for $20. Bucks.
Here is a hair glossing spray that can be used in a spray bottle. . Note: the pumps can vary in their ability to properly mist some formulations. Adjust the level of Cyclomethicone down in the following formulation if this proves to be a problem for your pump assembly.

There are fabulous serums found in drugstores for only a few dollars.
I use Got2b glossy anti-frizz shine serum 118 ml for $5. This bottle is half full and I've been using it for well over a year old.

I have thick, wavy curly frizzy hair so the more dense the serum, the better for me.
Maybe when I get a few dollars, I'll try your formula. I love reading about what ingredients go into formulations and why they work together.
Thanks again for sharing.
