Default Experiment - new FSG, great results so far!

Holy curls!!! So my hair LOOOOOVES gelatin. It likes FSG, too. Years and years ago I used some homemade gelatin hair gel. You made it with 3 cups of water instead of 2, if I recall. It was my friend's - she did synchro swimming, and they use gelatin during their performances.

So I got to thinking... If my hair loves FSG, and loves gelatin, why not do a half and half?

So I did a quadruple batch of FSG, added a whole pack of gelatin, and then all my additives. (I can give you the whole process/recipe if anyone wants it - I won't bore you with it now!)

When I was done, I had probably 30oz of the stuff. (used two full bottles of water.). I poured it into 3 8oz Ball freezer jars, and then the remainder into my usual FSG dispenser (an old dish soap squeeze bottle.)

My hair is still plopping right now, but let me just say, MAJOR BOING when I put the stuff in!!

Now... It remains to be seen if this is at all drying, or too crunchy, etc. But the initial results look positive!!!!

If the results aren't great, my plan is to put it all back into the pot and try adding a little more pure FSG to balance it out.

Wish me luck!!!
