Glucomannan curl enhancer? My wild idea

I havn't done this yet but if I have time tonight I'll give it a shot.

I'm going to go really far out on a limb and try to make my own curl enhancer using just water and some of my glucomannan (Konjac) powder that I use for low carb thickening. What is Glucomannan powder? I thought you'd never ask! Here's more info than you really ever wanted to know...Konjac glucomanan powder is pure soluble fiber, no protein, no fat, no sugar, no starch, it is also gluten free and wheat free.

1/4 tsp in whisked briskly into 1 cup of cold liquid and gently heated in the microwave makes a lovely silky thickened liquid. I usually use it to make sauces but since it is flavourless and ordorless, I think it would make a fantastic hair styling product and because it is a fiber, it should give some structure to curls when it dries. I'll try it tonight and report back...

How did this go?

I have some Glucomannan supplement capsules that have expired (therefore, I don't want to consume them) but I'm sure they'd be fine in my hair.

I've been sick with a terrible virus since the day I last posted about this and therefore forgot all about doing it.

I'm glad somebody asked because I still want to give it a try.. sorry everybody, I'll try to get to it soon.

I recently found out that this may make a GREAT natural alternative to carbomer...

I plan on mixing this as well...
