If you want to style your hair, hair wax is one product both men and women rely on. But what if there’s a healthy way to prepare it and use it without guilt, instead of the harsh chemical-laden waxes from stores?
Store-bought waxes are laden with chemicals and do more harm than good. Why use it if you can prepare your own hair wax, with a few ingredients that are natural and hair-friendly, and yet give equally good or better results? Sounds unbelievable right?
But the truth is, hair wax is very easy and simple to prepare and you won’t need complex and hard to pronounce chemicals to get a usable hair wax. The best part is all the ingredients used are natural, can be changed to suit your needs and affordable!
Here’s a simple but easy recipe that could work wonders for your hair, while making styling a breeze. Trust me this works and is quite simple and easy to prepare. Hardly takes a few minutes!
Coconut Oil – 30 Ml
Argan Oil – 1 Tsp.
Beeswax – 30 Gm
Shea Butter – 20 Gm
Peppermint Essential Oil – 7 Drops
Spearmint Essential Oil – 7 Drops
Tangerine Essential Oil – 5 Drops
Cinnamon Essential Oil – 2 Drops
In your double boiler, add all your ingredients except essential oils and Argan Oil.
Stir till the ingredients melt and combine.
Remove from heat and wait for a few minutes – so the mixture cools down.
Now, add the essential oils and Argan Oil. Stir to combine.
Transfer to a sterilized jar and let it sit for a few hours to set.
How to Use?
Take a small dollop, rub along your fingers to make it pliable and apply on your hair. Style as usual. Remember, a little goes a long way! So, you only need a small amount.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You don’t have to follow this recipe to a T. You can always modify this to suit your requirements. For example, if you want a harder or strong hold wax, you can up the Beeswax, whereas, if you want lighter hold or medium hold, you can up the Oil and reduce the wax and butter. Harder wax will need 2 parts beeswax and 1 part oil, whereas, softer wax will call for 1/3 part butter and 1 part oil.
You can use any essential oil according to your choice. The ones chosen here are more in line with minty fragrance and to help hair along the way. However, any oil works equally well.
Why This Recipe?
Natural, easy to prepare and most importantly, all the ingredients are healthy and help your hair. What’s not to like about it? They don’t damage your hair like chemical-laden styling products, so if you are skeptical about the benefits, why not use it because it doesn’t damage your hair?
This lasts a good few months, though I recommend new batches every 2 – 3 months for freshness.
