Homemade Herbal Deluxe Hair Pomades
The Herbal Deluxe Hair Pomades are some of my best-selling products, Long haircut with layers and side bangs and I have received many rave reviews about the results they achieve. These pomades are a thickened combination of oils that can be massaged into the scalp and hair for an excellent treatment that moisturizes, nourishes, cleans, prevents hair from splitting and increases growth and manageability. A light application can help tame wild, flyaway hair or be used to create a slick, wet look. Herbal Deluxe Hair Pomade requires advance preparation, since it contains herbal-infused oil. The herbal-infused oil recipes that follow yield about 10 oz. Only 3 oz. of this oil is needed per batch of pomade, so you will have about 7 oz. of oil left over to use directly on hair and scalp, for subsequent batches of pomade or for creating other formulas.
Herbal Deluxe Hair Pomade All/Dry/Dark Hair
1 oz. dried burdock root (cut) 3 oz. shea butter
1 oz. dried comfrey root (cut) 2 oz. beeswax
1 oz. dried nettle root (cut) 3 oz. jojoba oil
1 oz. dried salvia apiana leaf 1 oz. sesame oil
1 oz. freshly dried black walnut hull 1 teaspoon rosemary essential oil
15 oz. cold pressed olive oil 1/2 teaspoon sage essential oil
3 oz. coconut oil
Coarsely grind herbs and make herbal-infused oil with ground herbs and olive oil. See Directions for Herbal-infused Oils with Dried Herbs. Combine 3 oz. of the strained herbal-infused oil with the rest of the ingredients (except the essential oils) in a heat-proof measuring cup and place in a hot-water bath over medium-high heat. Stir until the oils, butter and wax melt into a uniform liquid free of lumps. When it is completely melted pour liquid into a wide-mouth jar, add essential oils and cap immediately to prevent them from evaporating. When solidified it is ready for use. Makes 15 oz.
Note: You will have an extra 7 oz. of herbal-infused oil to use for another batch of pomade or to use directly on hair and scalp. It is better to make extra herbal-infused oil and have it on hand.
