All you need is ..... gelatin and some water. Yes, gelatin, my friends. It is natural, completely safe and very cheap. So you ready for the recipe? Here we go:
For a stronger hold: use 1 tbs gelatin
Lighter hold: 3/4 tbs
Light hold: 1/2 tbs
1 cup of hot water.
Essential oils (optional)- anything from lavender to sweet orange will do, depending on your personal preference- about 4-6 drops.
Mix the water and gelatin together in a glass container and let sit in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Once cooled, drop the essential oils, if you prefer. You can also put the mixture in a squirt plastic bottle or anything that works for you, just wait until the water and gelatin are set and cool.
You can store the gel in the fridge for a couple of weeks with no problem. Happy Styling :)
