Formulation 2

This leave-on Serengeti Vibes Curling Balm from Univar Solutions is an eco-friendly formula that enhances hydration, boosts shine and controls frizz.


Add all constituents of phase A in the order listed and mix well between each addition until homogeneous.

Formulation 3

Seppic’s Emosmart V21 provides a light and unctuous texture to this Hair Modelling Wax.

Formulation 4

Active Concepts demonstrates the efficacy of its styling retention ingredient ProCutiGen Hold – a biomimetic cuticle – in ProCutiGen Hold Styling Spray.


Mix phase A until homogenous. Mix phase B until homogenous. Mix together phase A and phase B until a uniform system is formed.
