Thanks! I have a couple questions.
Would corn starch work as a thickener? And is agave nectar a humectant?

Corn starch will thicken but not film form and potentially dull your hair. If you use dry shampoo you wipe or brush the excess out, right?

Is okra gel easy to strain? Also, whenever I make flax seed gel, it always smells terrible. Does okra gel smell bad?
