Had to resurrect this thread! Saw okra when I was at the Indian grocery store the other day. Ended up buying 1/2 pound. Made my gel--cooked it much longer then I did previous times (I'm pretty sure, it's been a while.) Added all the same ingredients except for AVG (I forgot to bring it down.) Use guar gum to thicken (did gelatine, too) and my new favorite ingredient--Sucragel. Used it this morning with my FSG HG--SSI LI, a Komaza Pudding and Okra Gel. I didn't use a lot. Could probably use a little more. My hair is great--nice curls, lots of volume, shine (unusual for me), feels really natual and minimal frizz. It's cold and really winding today. I was out a little and it really held up.
I'll have to remember to use this again in five days!
