I used BB's recipe as a base for homemade KCCC (jojoba gel), because my hair hates aloe. After straining the flax gel, I added 2 teaspoons jojoba oil, 1/2 teaspoon vegetable glycerin, and 1/4 teaspoon methylcellulose (plant based thickener). The methylcellulose clumped and would not mix with a whisk, so I broke out the hand blender and that worked great to blend everything together.

I used the jojoba gel on freshly washed hair and really like it. It's not quite the same as KCCC but makes for a decent substitute.

Pros: great frizz reduction, adds moisture
Cons: not enough hold

I'll try using a hard hold gel over this for more hold. I think the super soaker method would work great here too.
