Mold and manipulate your hair with this super simple homemade pomade. Pomades are best at taming your flyaways and giving your ends that piecey texture. You can also use it to slick down your sides for that rocker look. It’s not only perfect for you, it’s perfect for him, too! So go ahead and double the recipe. An hour of your time will reward you with weeks upon weeks of bad-ass hair.
THINGS YOU NEED
2 Tbs beeswax (grated + packed in a measuring spoon)
8 tsps of oil (olive, canola or coconut)
2 Tbs vegetable glycerin
Essential oils (totally optional … i like lavender and tea tree)
Lidded Jar or Tin (recycled cosmetic container or candle tin or lip balm jar work well)
In a double boiler, slowly heat wax and oil together until melted. Mix well. Let cool completely. (Speed up cool down time by placing in the refrigerator until solid.) Scoop mixture into a blender and add vegetable glycerin and essential oils (if you choose to use them.) Don’t forget to put the lid on before pressing GO! Blend well until you have a semi smooth consistency. Place in your container with a lid and keep in a cool place.
Make a tiny tin of homemade pomade for purses and pockets.
Use lip balm as pomade when you’re stuck without the real deal.
