Enumerated semi-finished products allow you to make 120 ml/4.22 oz. of hair serum. To piece all the necessary ingredients together is the hardest part of the task, because execution of the product is really easy. To the bottle with demineralized water add d-panthenol and shake it for ingredients to combine. To an empty bottle with atomiser (you can use a bottle after other cosmetic, but you have to clean it first) put vitamin composition, which should be in a form of powder. To vitamins add hydrolyzed keratin and elastin, which are two most important ingredients. To ingredients in the bottle pour prepared earlier solution of water and vitamin B5.
