Suspending clay

Is there anything that will help suspend clay in an oil only hair wax formulation to go with beeswax so it won't sink to the bottom. The clay I'm using is Kaolin and also have Rhassoul clay.

    @crillz ; with adequat level of oils and beewax  clay won't sink to the bottom .
    However if it is hair clay pomade, not mask i did not think that  Rhassoul clay is a good idea .

    It is for a pomade. I am only making small 50g batches until I find something suitable, do I have to mix with shear or doesn't matter as much as its all oil based.

    @crillz the level of wax is the most important thing , so for good level you can mix it with what you want.

    I've come up with a product I like. I used 54 percent micro wax and 10 percent Lexfeel to go with coconut oil etc. Question tho, what is wrong with using rhassoul clay in hair? A no no?

    @crillz actually almost clay has basic ph but seeing rhassoul clay it is acceptable between 7 and 7,5 so i guess may be it can ne good .
