Homemade hair mousse
Anybody have a recipe for all natural hair mousse? I heard egg whites act as a mousse/gel on hair, but I'm a little apprehensive about trying that. I think you have to leave the egg whites in, in order for them to work.
Here's some mousse recipes. I don't know if they work...
It would be my luck to make something with egg whites and get an odd smell in my hair....I wonder.
Thanks sandberry. Lol, of course the first one on the list is the egg white mousse! I came across a website (should have bookmarked it) with a recipe for flaxseed and shea butter custard. It's just a combo of flaxseed gel and shea butter. I think I'm gonna try that. The last time I washed my hair, I did bigger twists. I like the fullness, but I've been having to retwist almost every night! When I was doing the smaller twists, they would last a good 7 days or so. I need something to hold my twists without making my hair all hard and crunchy.

I think that my curiousity might get the best of me with some of the recipes which are listed here, thanks again Sandberry, I mean Dr. Sandberry.
With the addition of egg whites, which is a dairy product, would the mixture need to be refrigerated? You know, with everyone making their own hair gels, mousses, etc, we're going to put a hurtin' on some hair care companies. LOL
