Burt's Bees cuticle cream... for hair?

I'm sure this sounds weird, but has anyone tried using BB cuticle cream on their hair before? I guess you'd use it as a pomade. It's so moisturizing for my fingers, and the ingredients sound hair friendly and pomade-ish.

Ingredients:
prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, beeswax, citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, beta-carotene, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, tocopherol, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil, vegetable oil.

The only thing I can think of as being problematic would be the candelilla wax. I'm not sure how water soluble that is, but I find that this stuff really absorbs into my skin well, and isn't the rule of thumb that if it works well on your skin then it should on your hair?

    Great idea, I'd try it that way if I had it! Report back if you do! Candelia wax is in some of the pomades I have, and it's not a problem, but I shampoo every day with a clarifying sulfate 'poo, so build up is not an issue for me with anything, and I have used very few products that were hard to rinse out, candelia wax wasn't in any of them.

    I am contemplating using some lip balms on hair to seal and as a pomade. I have a ton and need to use them up before they spoil, and ingredients are just butters, oils and some wax, minimal amount in most of them, no waxy feel, don't see why it wouldn't work.

    I personally wouldn't want the beeswax, especially that high up the ingredient list. It builds up on my hair even though I low poo, and I've never used a hair product that contains it that I like. Don't know anything about candelia wax.

    ooooooookkk...
    just doing a little research on the internet, and from what I understand beeswax is really good for creating certain styles..... like dreadlocks D:
    Well that throws that theory out the window! Good thing I didn't put any in my hair.

    YMMV - you might try it sometime when it doesn't really matter and just see how you like it. I'd just be prepared to have to at least low poo, if not sulfate poo, more often than you might otherwise have to.
