This is what every body's been asking for since GypsyCurls took down the video...I will be doing a vid soon but until then here is the recipe. You can find all the ingredients at any local health food store. This gel will define your curls and give a soft hold. Click here
for my application video. This is also great for putting hair in a puff.
**WARNING! If you make this mixture too thick you can't go back so be easy on the xanthan gum!
1/2 cup of aloe Vera gel
1/4 cup of jojoba oil
1/4 cup of vegetable glycerin
1/2 tsp of xanthan gum
15 drops of your choice essential oil (i use grapefruit) for scent
In a blender/food processor using a whipping blade or by hand using a whisk mix aloe vera gel, jojoba oil, and veggie glycerin. Next add the Xanthan gum. **I DON'T USE THE WHOLE 1/2 TEASPOON!!! LEAVE ABOUT A PINCH LEFT!** Let the mixture sit for about 15-20 mins to thicken. It shouldn't be runny or as thick as pancake batter (see pic). If it is not thick enough add the last pinch of the Xanthan gum. Last mix in 15 drops of your choice essential oil.
