DYI 2 ingredient All-Natural Hair Gel

Looking for a natural way to style your hair and tame your curls? Try this easy recipe to make your own, super inexpensive and awesome hair gel today in the comforts of your own home. 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 

and

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 :)
