A recipe that i found on make your own

Hempy Chick Pomade

6 ounces organic hemp seed oil
2 ounces babassu oil
1 ounce beeswax
1 ounce shea butter (unrefined, Ghana)
1/8 ounce ylang ylang essential oil
3 drops clove essential oil
1 drop geranium essential oil
1 drop sandalwood essential oil
1 drop neroli essential oil
Blending Procedure:
Combine hemp seed oil, babassu oil, beeswax and shea butter in a heat proof measuring cup (Pyrex is nice to use). Place the cup containing the oils and butter into a pan of boiling water and heat until wax is nearly melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat once the wax is nearly melted.

Stir the mixture to make sure all wax has melted into the liquefied oils. Add the essentail oils and stir again to ensure the mix.

Pour Hempy Chick Hair Pomade into clean jars and allow to cool before capping. You can store this for up to about 3 months. As always, be sure to use clean fingers to dispense the product to minimize contamination.

To use Hempy Chick Hair Pomade, massage it into the scalp and hair ends while your hair is still wet from shampooing. Comb through and enjoy the curls, volume and radiance!!

I have been in search mode for the last day to two looking for basic shampoo recipes that I can add special ingredients to such as shea oil (yes it does come in oil form :D) silk peptide powder, honeyquat. Basically items that can make my shampoo more moisturizing and less likely to strip my hair. These recipes are taken from Natural Hair Care Guide.

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

There is this website that I love to visit call The Natural Beauty Workshop, its more of a blog thatn a website but it has lots of recipes and stuff. Here is on that I like:

Fruit & Veggie Hair Oil

1/4 ounce Jojoba Oil                                  
1/2 ounce  Broccoli Seed Oil                               
1/4 ounce Blueberry Seed Oil                               
1 ounce Watermelon Seed Oil                           
25 drops Helio Carrot Root Total CO2 Extract 

Combine all ingredients in a measuring cup and mix well.

This recipe makes about 2 oz. of hair oil.  I recommend using a high density plastic bottle with a disc cap or snap cap for easy use in or out of the shower.

This oil can be warmed gently before use, or applied at room temperature.  Massage a small portion of oil into your hair and scalp.  Leave this conditioning oil in your hair for between 10 and 30 minutes.  Shampoo you hair as usual, adding another conditioner if needed.  Some people may need to shampoo twice to eliminate all of the oil from their hair. 

As the recipe name indicates its for your hair, I intend to purchase the necessary supplies and make it for my hair. Im really big into the natural hair and body care right now.

Here are the benefits of the oils mentioned in the recipe.

Broccoli Seed Oil is a surprisingly useful ingredient.  It lends shine and moisture to hair formulas without making them too heavy.  Blueberry Seed Oil is one of nature’s most potent sources of antioxidants!  Its easily penetrating texture keeps this hair oil on the light side.  Jojoba Oil does not come from a fruit or vegetable, in fact, it comes from a nut.  But I just couldn’t leave it out of a hair oil!  It’s composition is very close to hair’s natural conditioner, sebum.  Jojoba acts as an intensive conditioner, while helping to shield hair from damage.  Watermelon Seed Oil is an all around favorite ingredient of mine.  Traditionally called Ootanga or Kalahari Oil in Africa, it has been used for generations in African skin and hair care.  It is highly moisturizing and like its accompanying ingredients, non-greasy.  Helio Carrot Root (Total) CO2 Extract is is rich in beta carotene and vitamins A and E, making it a highly nutritive addition to the recipe.

All of these can be purchased from
