Homemade Mango Pomade and Beeswax On Twist out PT1 + Pics

 

Hey ya’ll, I’ve been experimenting, and its all good. So, I came lately I’ve been getting bored of my Shea butter products, and wanted to try something new. I did some research on some butters, and bought a few. One butter I began playing with, is Mango butter.

Mango Butter: has natural emollient properties, wound healing, and regenerative activity. Mango Butter has been traditionally used in the rainforests and tropics for its skin softening, soothing, moisturizing and protective properties and to restore flexibility and reduce degeneration of skin cells. It has a protective effect against UV radiation.

MANGO BUTTER FOR HAIR:

  • Softens hair
  • Protects from UV ray
  • Minimizes single strand knots
  • Non- greasy (not as greasy as Shea Butter)
  • Makes hair more voluminous
  • Shiny hair
  • Thickens hair
  • More manageability

Beeswax: is a natural wax produced in the bee hive of honey bees. It contains lots of fatty acids.

BEESWAX FOR HAIR:

  • Strengthens hair strains
  • Provides a  natural soft hold for hair styling
  • Gives hair tons of body

Making The Pomade

You’ll Need:

  • empty container
  • 1 cup of Mango Butter
  • 1/2 cup of beeswax (melted)
  • 5 drops of jojoba oil  (optional)
  • 5 drops of avocado oil (optional)
  • 5 drops of coconut oil (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of horsetail powder (for hair growth and elasticity)  (optional)

  1. Place your mango butter in a blender.
  2. Blend until the mango butter is nice and smooth
  3. Remove the mango butter from the blender, scooping it out into a empty container
  4. Pour your hot beeswax onto the mango butter.
  5. Mix the two together
  6. Add you oils
  7. Mix well
  8. Place in a cool area until it solidifies

    I am going to try this. Did you like the results to you twists?

    • @Marica Green
      I loved my results. And continue to use the pomade when styling.
      Give it a try and follow up with me when you do. How you like your results.

        TI made this and mine came out to hard and waxy so it’s hard to apply to my hair. I did not use the horsetail because my hair does not want any continuous protein and horsetail acts like one but I don’t think this should’ve mattered because it was optional. My mango and beeswax did not mix well and I had to end up melting them together in order for them to combine. Your final results look soft and whipped, am I seeing it correctly? Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this? I want my hair to look as beautiful as yours.

      • @marcia green I suggest less beeswax. And if you didn’t the first time, next add some oils.
        If you have the beeswax pelts, use only about 10 of them. If a beeswax bar, use half a tsp. This loosen your Pomade.

    • @Kea Well, simply focus the product on the ends of the hair. It’ll lessen the chance of build up. Or you can take beeswax out of the ingredient completely.
      Hope this helps.
