Chloe, the only reason I haven't tried xanthan gum is because its a bit pricey compared to the pectin and cornstarch. Does it leave anything in your hair?
And your first batch lasted 7 weeks?! Holy cow. Without preservatives?

I think the best way to store it without having to make small batches all the time is by freezing small amounts and taking them out as you need them.

No, the batch I kept for 7 wks in the fridge had preservatives. Sorry I didn't clarify that.

Since I've been making it myself, that's exactly what I do- put some in the freezer and a small amount in the fridge.
