DIY - Hair gel

Another simply curly hair DIY is a nice hair gel , with moderate hold but no stiffness , and makes your curls look glossy. Sounds too good to be true, here it is.

It is really easy to make. And this one is all natural.

1 cup aloevera gel
1 1/2 -2 cups water - preferably green tea
1/2 tsp vinegar (apple cider / wine / malt- any non - synthetic vinegar is good)
1 tsp oil- olive/ coconut/almond or a mix of all three
2-3 drops essential oil of your choice - i would pick lavender , peppermint or even some jasmine

Boil water , let it cool. Boil it again (this is to kill all the germs that may reduce the life span of this gel). Once you take the water off the boil add 2 tsp of green tea leaves in it. Adding green tea will make this gel more nourishing.You wont just be styling your hair , but feeding it. (Think of the pennies saved , that you would spend on buying exotic green tea containing shampoo)
Take a bowl , add aloevera gel and 1 tsp oil and add the green tea slowly , ensuring that the mixture is well blended. You can use a blender to speed things up , but using a simple spoon or spatula is just as efficient.
When all the green tea has been combined with the gel, add some vinegar and essential oil and mix well.
Refrigerate. Keep refrigerated so that it does not spoil.
This keeps for 1- 2 months if kept in the fridge.

Use- Use this on dry or wet hair. Massage a little in your palm and scrunch it through your hair.

This also works as a conditioner if you happen to run out of yours, this is a decent substitute.

I have added water / green tea to the gel so that the gel doesnt give a harsh look to your face by hardening your hair a bit. Also diluting the gel makes it easy to wash off.
