Has anyone ever made their own spray gel?

I was thinking of trying an experiment. I was thinking of taking some IC gel and diluting it with distilled water in a spray bottle and adding a little oil to make a spray gel. Has anyone tried this before? If so, what were the results?

I know there's a recipe for this in the Curly Girl book. I started to try this when I was still transitioning. It would probably make a good refresher spray for 2nd day hair. If you try it, let us know how it works!

yes! i made it from flaxseed extract. better than any commercial gel i also tried the IC spray gel thing, but it still left my hair stiff and overdefined. that gel just hates me! good luck spiral!

^^^
1 cup water
2 tbsp. organic flax seeds
few drops of favorite eo, honey, glycerine (optional)

bring to a boil, turn flame down, allow to simmer until the water begins to thicken. strain, allow to cool. gel will form.

for the flaxspray: equal parts gel and water

Thanks guys. I've made flax gel before, but never tried it in liquid form(I usually use it to make a styling cream). I think I will try the flax gel and the diluted IC and post my results. I'll have to wait until the weather warms up, though - a week or two (I hope!).
