I’ve been making my own hair balm for the past year and it works GREAT!! But it tends to separate after a couple weeks. It still works fine, but there are bits of one of the ingredients floating around in it (I think it’s the cocoa butter). I’d like to find out if there’s a way to avoid this. I’m hoping to start selling a bit of this on the side to help pay the bills or give the hubbie and I some spending money, but don’t think the products I have now is “professional” enough. Here’s the recipe I’ve been using (feel free to use this yourself!). It’s weighed out in grams. Just melt it in the microwave, stir, and let it cool.
- Refined coconut oil - 13.25 g
- Refined shea butter - 6.5 g
- Refined cocoa butter - 15.5 g (I think this is the ingredient that separates)
- Lanolin - 3 g
- White bee’s wax - 2g
- Fragrance oil blend (not homemade, bought premixed online) - 2g
