I'm definitely liking homemade FSG (I even received a compliment about how curly my hair looks today!), so I want to experiment a bit with adding new ingredients to my current recipe. I know there are many recipe threads, but I figured it would be a good idea to have a "central" thread where we don't post our recipes, but where we collect optional ingredients along with their purposes. This way, it's easier to determine what we need to optimise our individual recipes.

How about I put them in this first post and update this every time someone adds a new ingredient? Perhaps I could even categorise the ingredients on what they do for your hair (provide hold, moisture, etc).

The list:
- Agave nectar: hold, shine
- Aloe vera gel: moisture
- Argan oil: sealer, shine
- Citric acid: used to reduce pH
- EcoMulse: emulsifier
- Epsom salt: curl enhancer
- Gelatine: protein
- Glycerin: humectant
- Grapeseed oil: sealer, moisturiser when emulsified
- Honey: hold
- Honeyquat: humectant
- Marshmellow root: slip, thickener
- Olive oil: shine
- Pottasium sorbate: preservative
- Xanthan gum: thickener
F - LP - HD - NE
Fine, low porosity, high density, normal elasticity
Hairtype 2c

Low poo: Petal Fresh Organics Rosemary & Mint Volumizing Shampoo
Protein: IAGirl's gelatine treatment
