I find DIY easier, less time consuming, and more satisfying than scouring stores and markets for products that are package free, or which use recyclable packaging. It’s also great to know exactly what goes into a product and therefore into us.

The boys in our house like to use hair styling wax when they go out, so I made them some to keep the packaging out of our home. It only took five minutes and smells divine (I used lemon essential oil). You can also use this as a lip balm.

DIY natural hair styling wax.


  • 15g grated beeswax
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil,
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil,
  • 20 drops of chosen essential oil (try lime or lemon)


Melt beeswax and coconut oil in a bain-marie, mix well to combine. Remove from heat, then add olive oil and chosen essential oil. Pour into a small jar then allow to solidify at room temperature. Store in the fridge.

Too easy!

    Im2 transitioning to zero waste over the next few months. How well would you say the style holds? Does it make hair look wet?
