Old Method

Hair Gel: Gelatin. Dissolve 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of un-flavored gelatin in 1 cup warm water. Keep refrigerated and use as you would a purchased gel.

Hair Spray: Citrus. Chop 1 lemon (or orange for dry hair). Place in a pot and cover with 2 cups of hot water. Boil until only half remains. Cool and strain. Add more water if needed. Refrigerate in a spray bottle.

Comb and Hair Brush Cleaner: Fill a basin with hot water, and add either 2 tbs. ammonia OR 1 tsp. liquid dish detergent. Drop in combs and brushes and soak 10 minutes, then use combs to clean brushes. Rinse thoroughly and air dry.
