Candle wax




Petroleum Jelly


  • Light up your gas to normal range, then take a pot and add your petroleum jelly, candle wax , mineral oil, camphor and shea butter, then put the pot on the gas or stove
    to melt/dissolve the chemicals.

  • Also, when you observe everything has melted, drop the pot from the gas and add the sulphur, methyl-salicylate, oil color and the raw perfume then stir .

  • Finally, turn the content into a hair cream container and leave to solidify.


There are two types of color namely;

  • water color
  • oil color

We use oil color because most of the chemicals used for hair cream production are oil-based.
