I wanted to make a gel, but couldn't get to the store. I had ground flax seed in the house, but it was pretty impossible to get the ground seed out of the gel. I had frozen okra, but for whatever reason it didn't make a very thick slime. Then I found tapioca powder. Couldn't find a recipe for it, so I made one up.

1 cup water
1 Tbsp tapioca powder

Mix together and put over high heat. Wisk continuously until the solution turns clear. Let cool.

This defined my curls wonderfully! But it also dropped tons of little white flakes when I SOTC. It's promising though and very easy, so more experimentation is in order!
