DIY Natural Hair Gel with Gelatin – Frugal and Easy


A super easy and frugal recipe for homemade hair gel that really works! It only uses two ingredients, with an optional third one. It’s also non-toxic and natural!


It’s super duper cheap. Literally, pennies per batch. There are 96 teaspoons in this bottle of gelatin, and we’re only using 1/2 tsp. per batch. That’s 10 cents per batch!

The essential oils I use are lavender and peppermint or orange, lavender and rosemary. So I get whiffs of the scent all day long and it’s so nice! (where to buy high quality essential oils)

It’s easy to make.

It’s totally safe and natural.


Ingredients 

Light hold: 1/2 tsp. grassfed gelatin

Medium hold: 3/4 tsp. grassfed gelatin

Strong hold: 1 tsp. grassfed gelatin

1 cup hot water

Optional for fragrance – 10 drops of your favorite essential oils. For hair, mine are lavender, rosemary, sweet orange, and peppermint. (where to buy high quality essential oils)

Glass jar (like an 8 ounce mason jar) or squirt bottle

Optional: for additional moisture, add some vegetable glycerine or pure aloe vera gel


DIRECTIONS

Pour the hot water into an 8 ounce container (but not plastic just yet since it’s so hot!) and pour in the gelatin. Stir to combine then refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until set. Drop the essential oils in once cooled and stir.


Store in the fridge and it lasts for 1-2 weeks. I find it’s easiest to use with a squirt bottle or else it gets messy. It’s jello for your hair, who would’ve thought?!
