How to Use the Pomade?
This is very similar to hair gel. So, take a small dollop, rub your hands together and apply on your hair before styling. Style as usual. Though I have mentioned for me, ladies, feel free to use it ;). It is meant for both – just alter the fragrances to suit you!
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
Men mostly like the cool sensation menthol offers. So adding Peppermint or Spearmint is a good idea. They also smell great and improve hair health.
On the other hand, you can combine one or more essential oils to come up with a scent that will suit your man. Musk, Cinnamon, Vetiver, Sandal are few fragrances you can consider.
You can use Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil or even Apricot Oil instead of Olive Oil.
Since this doesn’t include water-based ingredients, this should last for 6 months easily.
