1 Decide what are you going to use it for what style.
2 Depending on what you will use it for will give you a general idea of the measurement of the ingredients.
3 If you want more hold give it more bees wax than petroleum jelly or oil.
4 First melt your bees wax in a clean pan until its a liquid, then pour into a cooling container.
5 Add oil or Vaseline so the wax doesn't go hard again.
6 Remember more oil or petroleum jelly: less hold, but more shine.
7 If you like, add some mint or some kind of nice-smelling oils to cover up the smell of the petroleum jelly.
Make it in large batches because if you're a greaser, you will use a lot.
For it to wash out, use detergent, (like for your dishes.)
I personally prefer to use corn starch and shampoo because it's better for your hair.
You are handling hot wax, be careful!.
Don't use paraffin wax or any artificial waxes instead of bees wax.
Don't melt it in a microwave, only on a hotplate or stove.
