Then I added Dehydroxanthan Gum and Raspberry Dimethicone WS (water souble). Topped it off with a preservative.

The last 4 days my hair has held curl all the way to the root. My curls are really well formed and even with high dew points (in the 70's) I haven't had any frizz. I'm pretty excited about the idea of making my own products. Next I'm going to try a conditioner and then try and extra hold gel to layer with my FSG. Here are some pictures. I wish I could get better pictures.
