A proud mumma moment.
My handsome boy, who is nearly 14, asked me to get him some gelatine today. What for? I asked.
I am going to make my own home-made hair gel – it’s cheap and it’s got nothing artificial in it, he says.
He had researched on Google and found a recipe on Yahoo.
It’s so easy. You have to try it!
Okay, so this is what you need:
1/2 teaspoon of gelatine (if you are vegan, you might like to try agar agar)
Okay, so this is how you do it:
Whisk the gelatine into the hot water. Put into the fridge until it sets. Mix it up well before you use it.
Use a tiny bit on your hair and rub it through well.
Check out the gorgeous curls on my boy – the girls at school always want to touch them ! 😉
If you want it to smell nice, you can add some essential oils.
It will keep for a week in the fridge in a sealed container.
So, I am pretty happy that my boy is thinking about what products he is using and trying to come up with alternatives. Not only is this natural, it’s cheap too!
Have you made your own hair products?
