Natural Herbal Hair Gel

The past few months have been horrible to my natural hair as the dryness licked every drop of moisture from my hair and roots. No matter what I did to it, it still felt like bad hair day everyday!

Hair gel is one of those styling products that I’ve used to tame my tresses in the past but I really didn’t need another hair product stealing something from my already dry hair. And it does take A.LOT of gel to get a decent look. So of course I set to researching natural hair gel.

After lots of experimenting, I found the right thickening agent for me and instead of just making ordinary gel, I decided on an aqueous extract of a mix of herbs to target scalp health (very important to me), shine and growth.

The result was a wonderfully herbal smelling gel that went on smoothly and didn’t dry in a crunchy way. I’ve also used this gel to style my little girls hair excellent results. The feel of the gel is more slick than commercial gel but that’s a very minor minus considering the good things its doing to our hair and scalp 😀
