Tryng to make hair clay pomade


Hair Clay:
mango butter
coconut oil
grapeseed oil
castor oil
caolin clay
bentonite clay
beeswax
glycerin
Phenoxyethanol, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cetearyl Alcohol , Polysorbate 60, water, simethicone, Polyvinylpyrrolidone

What do you guys think about these ingredients if it is mixed together?
I'm just confused with the chemical solutions.. I'm afraid I will be putting too much of it and maybe some of the solutions must not be mixed together?

and is it okay for me to heat all those solutions above?

    Yeesh! This sounds like a mess! Why not delete the  water, surfactants, PVP, phenoxytol, glycerin, clays and just build this with waxes, oils and butters? Keep come of the polysorbate-60 in there for easier rinse out. Otherwise return to GO.

    Thanks for replying. @chemicalmatt
    I thought with adding water would help make the hair clay lighter. Because I've tried to make the hair clay with only waxes, oils, and butters... and the result was the hair clay too heavy which made the hair clay didn't hold my hair well.

    Do you have any advice? to make my hair clay lighter?
