If you’re looking to shine up your “do” or add that piecy, sexy look to your hair, you’re in for a “natural” treat. Finding a healthy and homemade hair wax was not an easy task (since so many of these mainstream products are filled with nasty ingredients), but my new little tub was well worth the wait.
As you might guess, it’s got minimal ingredients: olive oil, beeswax, and aloe vera juice. It has a light, honey-like scent and only takes a teeny, tiny bit on my fingers to add an all-over smooth look to my style. It also adds moisture to dry ends and gives a wonderful shine. Best yet though, it doesn’t irritate my skin or eyes because the ingredients are so safe.
I found this little tub called VanBeez Hair Wax on Etsy.com (Nyse Designs) for only $5 plus shipping for 60g (I don’t know how much that is in oz) and it looks like it will last a very long time. The creator developed the recipe in her kitchen after having a bad reaction to hair wax from a salon. She states that it works best with curly or wavy hair, but it’s worked fine for me even when I wear mine straight.
Since I’ve paid much higher prices in the past for salon and other mainstream hair waxes (which often contain dangerous ingredients) and this is more economical and works wonderfully, I wanted to make sure to spread the word. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do if you decide to try it out!
