Help! Hair holding wax/cream

I am attempting to make a holding wax/cream based on my curly hair experiences with other waxes. My goal is that it won’t weigh my hair down, but simply define my curls and stop frizz.

All constructive suggestions are welcome!

  • water - 48%
  • Candellila wax - Euphorbia cerifera cera - 13%
  • Beeswax - cera alba 12%
  • Cetearyl alcohol - 10
  • Stearic acid - 6%
  • PVP - 4%
  • Vitis vinicera -5
  • Essential Oils - 2%

Comments

  • 1. Use less essential Oils. Like <1%.
    2. How thick is that formula? Between the waxes and the cetearyl alcohol, it seems like a lot.
    3. Using that much wax seems like it would produce a heavy product and the hold is likely to be TOO high.

    These would be the main 3 for me.

    What's the emulsifier in this formula?
