Homemade All Natural Hair Wax that REALLY works

I am proud to say that my husband is the reason for this post.

He told me yesterday that he was thinking of making his own hair wax...hmmm, nice thought, right? Especially since it's so expensive and he goes through it so quickly.

So I bought him the needed beeswax that he asked for and tonight after dinner he comes down with a recipe (as easy as pie) and starts mixing things together.

Less than three minutes later, his hair wax was "done". Although it looked pretty liquid to me....but he assured me it would harden.

Sure enough it did.

Did it work?


Even better than the "Surf Gel" he had been using, not at all sticky or greasy.
And may I add WAY less expensive and so much healthier.

I couldn't find his old hair gel on the Skin Deep Database but I have no doubt it would be a high rating.

Check out the spikiness (is that even a word?) he gets. He likes it spikey to say the least :)

So now when he's done slathering it on his hair to make his punk rock look, all he has to do is rub the remainder wax in his hands since it's all natural. Nice.

So here's the recipe:

1 cup Olive Oil

1/3 cup Beeswax

1 Tbs. Coconut Oil

Heat together in a pot until beeswax is fully melted. Remove from heat, let harden.

I got the beeswax at a local Health Food Store. It was like $23/lb (yikes!) But they had small containers of 0.165 lb for like $2 so it was pretty cheap, and there was some leftover after he made this first batch.

It looks like I'm rubbing off on my husband after all :)

  1. Also made a comment on your Facebook post, but here is a link to a site where you can get beeswax at a much more reasonable price, as well as a lot of oils and other natural bulk ingredients. They also have containers for different types of concoctions that you make (bottles, tins, etc).
