Why Use Grams For Measuring Ingredients In DIY Hair Products Rather Than Millilitres, Spoons, Cups or Ounces?
If you are making your own "Do It Yourself" products it is more accurate to use grams.
How About Millilitres, ml?
Millilitres are also quite accurate but not as accurate as grams and importantly, you can't use ml for solid ingredients only for liquid ingredients.
Accuracy is important when you are dealing with ingredients for your hair. Be patient and weigh everything out slowly.
Why Can't I Use Pounds (lbs) and Ounces (oz.)?
If you are used to pounds and ounces don't worry, you will get used to grams very quickly. 1,000 grams make a kilogram so it's very easy to understand metric units, all scientists use metric measurements and as a mixtress you should too :P.
Spoons, cups and ounces are extremely inaccurate for proper chemistry and my DIY Hair Recipes are proper chemistry.
