View Full Version : Beeswax in hair salve?

Hello TLHC! A couple of years ago, I received a small Burt's Bees pack, and it contained the Lemon Butter Cuticle cream and the Hand Salve.
Given my atopic dermatitis, I can't use them on my skin, because my pores act all crazy with thick salves or butters. But when looking at the ingredient list, I noticed a lot of good stuff: vitamin E, sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, olive oil... Good stuff.
Aside from one: beeswax. I'm not too scared by it, I already applied the Hand salve once and it's all ok, but I was wondering, has anyone tried using some sort of dilluted beeswax on their hair? In this case, have you noticed any build-up? Stickiness? anything?

I haven't had a hand-salve with beeswax around recently, but yes, in the past I've run freshly-salved hands through my hair to calm the wisps. It caused no trouble for me. At the time I was washing and conditioning twice a week.
