Home Made Hair Gel Recipe


The good thing about home made hair gel is that you know the ingredients. This makes it a better choice for people with sensitive skin or eczema. You can add which ever scented oils you prefer, but I have used lavender as it has a pleasant relaxing fragrance.

If you have trouble obtaining the ingredients you may need to order them online. I have purchased them from Auroma, who are based in Australia.

This recipe does not have the extreme hold of some of the commercial products, but it will hold badly behaved hair in place.


  • 5g tragacanth gum powder(from chemist or specialist supplier)
  • 15mL glycerine, warmed
  • 200mL water, warmed
  • few drops of lavender oil


  • Warm the glycerine, and dissolve the tragacanth gum.
  • Add the mixture to the water with a few drops of lavender oil and blend until smooth and thick.
  • This can be used immediately, and will keep in the refrigerator for some time.
