I've searched, and the only suggested amount for HEC in FSG I can find is 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. per 1 cup water (before cooking the flax seeds). Is this about right? I'm not looking for a really thick gel, just something that holds together a little more than plain FSG. When I use xanthan gum, I put in 1/4-1/2 tsp. per cup water.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut, As I Am, or CJ Daily Fix
Condition with STC or Yes to Blueberries and detangle with Denman, rinse very lightly (baptismal rinse)
Add LAL gel, either Sport or Wet Look, scrunch with flour sack towel, and plop
Diffuse 5 minutes, then air dry
