Homemade Hair Pomade
I love good hair products but they are so expensive. Plus, I often wonder what all those ingredients are!
Today, I am going to share with you a how to make hair pomade. It works wonders on hair and is all natural.
You only need a tiny dollop so this lasts forever. You can make this for a fraction of the cost of salon versions.
I like to use a tiny bit on the ends of my hair. It’s also great to tame frizzy hair.
Tips to make Natural Hair Pomade:
You can find small tins at your local craft store to put the pomade in. Sometimes you can luck up and find some at the dollar store.
We are trying to make more and more of our own products so I just buy these small tins on Amazon. I like having several on hand for when it’s time to make a new batch.
I like the tins because they are small enough to travel with. I actually like to keep one in my purse as well.
It is so handy to dab on hair as needed during the day and such.
Coconut oil is something else I like to keep on hand. I use it in this Homemade Peppermint Foot Scrub. And you will need it in this pomade.
I usually can get a better deal on Amazon on coconut oil.
You can add essential oils to this pomade but it’s totally optional. I love essential oils so I add a few drops when I make it.
Let’s learn how to make DIY Hair Pomade:
Ingredients for DIY Pomade strong hold:
- 2 tablespoons jojoba oil
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder (find in the spice aisle at the grocery store)
- 2 tablespoons beeswax
- 1/4 cup shea butter
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 10 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)
How to make Hair Pomade:
(This is what I use for a makeshift double boiler.)
3. Add arrowroot and stir well. Let set until cool, and it will look like it hardened. But it has not, just stir the mixture to create the paste.
(Some people use a hand mixer to get a really smooth texture but I just mix by hand)
4. Place into a jar or small pot with a lid to hold the pomade.
Directions to use Homemade Hair Pomade:
Use a small amount (pea size) and rub into your fingertips before applying to hair to create dimension, tame fly aways and condition your mane.
