Eco-friendly, low-cost hair conditioner and gel

Step 5: Adjust the formula to your liking

Picture of Adjust the formula to your liking
One of the nice things about making your own is that you can adjust it to your liking:

To make it thicker and more of a gel with more holding power, use more gum.

Adjust the oil content--less if you find the original formula too oily; more if you have dry hair. If you add a lot more oil, it won't mix in and will just float to the top.

That's the end of the instructions--but you can also read on to learn more about other possible ingredients, how I chose these, etc.
