DIY Hair Recipe

Here are the steps to follow to make it:

1. To set up the double boiler, pour about 1 inch of water into the bottom pot
and about 1 inch of water into the upper pot. Turn the heat on medium to
begin warming up the water in both the lower and upper pots.

2. Once the water begins to steam a bit, add the beeswax pastilles and shea
butter to the first glass measuring pitcher and place it gently into the upper
pot with an inch of water. Keep watch as the ingredients begin to melt. Stir

3. Add the jojoba oil to the second glass measuring pitcher and slowly sprinkle
in the tapioca starch. Whisk together slowly, making sure the tapioca starch
fully dissolves.

4. Once the jojoba and tapioca mixture is fully blended, carefully pour it into the
melted beeswax and shea butter, and mix well.

5. Gently lift the warm measuring pitcher out of the top pot of the double boiler,
and carefully dry the outside of the pitcher with a paper towel.

6. Pour the melted mixture into the glass or metal bowl you use with your stand
or handheld mixer, and let the bowl cool for about 10 minutes.

7. Touch the side of the bowl to test the temperature. When it is no longer too
hot to touch but still feels comfortably warm, whip the mixture on high for 3
minutes using a stand or handheld mixer.

8. Pause the mixer and use a silicone spatula to scrape the mixture down from
the sides of the bowl. Whip for another 1 to 2 minutes, until the butter starts
to look very thick and creamy.

9. Scrape off as much pomade as possible from the whisk attachment. If you are
using a stand mixer, remove the bowl from the mixer.

10. Add the essential oils and combine well using the spatula.

11. Portion the pomade into the glass jars and cap tightly.

The pomade will last for 3 months.

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
