  1. I watched this video on YouTube and I thought it was a really creative way to use the natural stickiness of the okra to make a hair gel. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m not vegan, but I prefer products like this because I find that they leave less residue. Hence, don’t need to wash again as soon. I wonder, how would this and flaxseed gel would work together? Extra hold?
