Hair pomade is a waxy substance used for hair styling purposes. … Hair pomade provides more shine but less hold, giving the flexibility to reshape throughout the day. Pomade doesn’t dry out and won’t harden on your head, pomade holds your style in place, but your hair remains supple.
Beeswax locks in moisture, smooths down fly-aways, promotes easier styling, and encourages the growth of new hair. Without leaving a greasy residue, it maintains a firm hold on hairstyles but is easy to wash out.
To make conditioning, softening, shine-enhancing pomade, begin by melting 2 Tbsp. Beeswax pastilles in a double boiler.
Once they have liquified, stir in 3 Tbsp. of a preferred Carrier Oil until it is thoroughly incorporated into the wax.
Next, transfer the blend into a small glass mason jar.
Pomades are best applied to slightly damp, towel-dried hair rather than completely dry hair. However, you can apply it dry if you have thin or fine hair, as you’ll have better control. You can also use it to finish off a style, add texture, or give a matte look to dry hair.
