  • I've just made a batch of hair gel and it was not as I expected. I had trouble staining out the seeds after they were cooked and ended up using a strainer made of sockies. (the foot part of stockings/tights), It was very messy. I let it 'set' overnight and it was as I left it, like the consistency of egg whites. I added some gelatin to it to thicken it up and it is just like jelly now. It is not at all like I expected it to turn out. I am just going to try it out on my guinea pigs... I mean kids.

  • I make this hair gel (without the scented oil) every week and LOVE IT on my shoulder length curls. The first time I made it it was like egg whites and difficult to work with, but since then I have made it more viscous by not letting it sit for so long and straining it while it is still warm. This is the best gel I've ever used on my hair.
