Default What is your favorite hair recipe

There are a lot of topics on favorite hair products but none specific to homemade ones. What is your favorite homemade hair product? Be sure to include the recipe or a link to it, how you use it (and how long you have used it, why you love it, etc. Also, any downsides to the recipe

My favorite is my own All in One Spray I created using many other recipes on this board as a guide. (Link in my signature). I use it by spraying generously on my just showered hair, scrunching in, and allowing to air dry. I love it because it is simple- both easy to make and use, yet effective- provides curl enhancement, moisture, and just enough hold for me. One downside is that it seems to need constant tweaking as the weather or my hair changes. This can be both time consuming and frustrating.

I tried your recipe and My hair felt so coated, it was really hard and crunchy, so I tried it again with less gel and still the same thing, any suggestions? I really want to make it work for me. Is there a way to make it more of a creme, maybe no water? Thanks, sorry for going off topic.

Reduce the salts too, and this time of year unless you are diffuse drying honey will make your hair take forever to dry.
