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.

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.

The tins are perfect 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.

However, you can add essential oils to this pomade but it’s totally optional. Furthermore, I love essential oils so I add a few drops when I make it.

  1. I’ve been looking for a great DIY All Natural Recipe for my hair! This is genius! I can’t wait to make it. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Hi, I was wondering if this would be considered oil-based or water-based? I’m looking for a water-based recipe that isn’t greasy, has a matte finish, and washes out fairly easily. I currently have a store bought clay that is hard to even wash off my hands. I only shampoo twice a week so I would like it to wash out easily. Thanks and I look forward to your response and trying the recipe!
