We've seen many recipes for spray hair gel, but found that our modifications made it just perfect! It is wonderful for people with dry hair because it contains no alcohol, unlike most commercial brands. And because it's a spray, it is quick and easy to apply! This gel works great and cost about $1.75 for 96 oz. of gel (depending on the cost of the box of gelatin).
What you need:
1 cup hot water
1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
3 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)
Simply mix the ingredients in an empty spray bottle. Let sit for about 5 minutes, then you are ready to style. You can add a tiny bit more gelatin to make a stronger hold, but too much will clog your bottle. Store your gel in the refrigerator to keep it fresh.
