  • Pour the mixture through a mesh sieve or strainer (some people also use pantyhose to strain the gel from the seeds) and into a small jar or air tight container to remove all the  seeds. Allow to cool.

  • Mix optional ingredients if desired.

  • Cover and store the gel in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. Use as you would store-bought hair gel.

  1. If you want curl definition & the conditioning of hops, make it with cheap beer. I add essential oil for fragrance & it is the bomb.The more water you add, the softer the hold will be. The beer scent dissipates when it’s dry & essential oils mask it anyway. Add 1 oz Everclear or similar grain alcohol for extended life, esp if you want to keep some in your purse. It will tell you when it’s expired. I haven’t bought hair gel for 3 years.:)
