arlier this year we were going through all our household, beauty and food products and checking the score/ingredients on EWG.org. Yes, that sounds daunting, but it all started with a list!
One of the products I was startled by (and quite frankly had overlooked because I don’t use it) is my husbands hair pomade. It scored a whopping 10 on EWG’s scale of harmful chemicals (in case you’re unaware, 10 is the worst score possible).
Gulp! Sorry Hubs!
We quickly did a little searching and stumbled upon Badger Hair Pomade, which filled in nicely for a while, but was still more than I wanted to spend monthly. Then a friend of mine came up with a killer beard balm recipe and a light bulb went off! I altered the recipe slightly, reducing some of the oils so The Hubs wouldn’t look like a hipster, and he said it was near identical to his old stuff! #WIN!
Because we can’t keep a good thing to ourselves, here’s the recipe! Whip it up and store it in a little tin like this, or seal it up in a glass jar. And just remember, a little goes a long way!
