I made some homemade gel using gelatine. I did half of my hair with KCCC and the other half with my homemade gelatine gel.
Here is my recipe:
2 cups of warm water
1/2 ounce of unsweetened gelatine (Knox brand or generic)
2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice
2 tablespoons of coconut milk (I dont know why I used it!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon coconut oil (unrefined for coconut smell. Didn't work for smell!)
1 tablespoon castor oil
10 drops of lemon oil (for fragrence)
*Note: I had to stretch my hair down and blow dry(on cool) the KCCC side so that it would be the same length as the Gelatine side.
I mixed all the oils and coconut milk together. Then I slowly poured the gelatine into the warm water while I was mixing it. I then poured the oil mixture into the gelatine mixture and mixed it. I let it cool then put it in the fridge over night. If it turns to jello like for you, scoop your desired amount into a container and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Or just put it in your palms and rub it together to liquify a bit.
This is my first trial run of this. I do not know the long term effects for my hair. The gelatine is full of protein so I think my hair will like this. I will use it about 2 or three times a week. I am excited to see how it will work with the plopping/plunking.

The gelatine cost 90 cents for 4 - .25ounce packets of gelatine so less 25 cents a pack. For my 2 cups of gel, it averaged about 70 cents including the cost of the small amounts of oil and milk I used.

KCCC costs $17.00. KCCC uses pectin instead of gelatine. You can get fruit pectin in the canning section. They also use horsetail and marshmellow root and some other things. I love their product but it was a bit expensive.

Since this is the first go at this gel, I am sure it will get better the more I make it! I will post updates and when I get my hands on some of the same ingredients that KCCC has, it is going to be on!
