Be Slick And Make Your Own Hair Gel

If you buy hair gel and feel as though you’re getting ripped off by paying good money for gelatinous crud that you could probably make yourself, there’s an alternative. With minimal time and effort, you can make your own gel, give it whatever French name you desire and slick down your mane while keeping your wallet intact.

How Stuff Works tells you how it’s done. Take a teaspoon of unflavored gelatin, mix it with a cup of warm water and refrigerate it for a few hours. And that’s it. If others compliment you on your hair, you can either share your secret with them or be a capitalist and offer to sell them jars of your homemade hair product.
