I recently cut my long, luxurious locks off on a whim, and now I’m playing with ways to style my hair. I’m contemplating the mohawk/mohican style. In this process, I’ve decided to come up with a recipe for a primitive ‘hair gel’. I was thinking so far that it’ll mostly be some sort of glue or gelatin, perhaps with a bit of tallow.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Maybe some more concrete references to traditional hair products than vague references I’ve read about the use of bear fat?
And while I’m on the subject, any dye recipes? Would hair dye be basically like any other vegetable based dye?
