I have an emo cut, and after looking at the no-poo stuff, i wondered how can I keep my fabulous hair w/o using mainstream products?<br>
So here is my question- is there a recipe or product that i can use to spike my hair?<br>
I have the "emo cut:" spiky in the back and long on the sides/in the front.<br>
Superbad shot here: <a href="http://xcb.xanga.com/0d4d5a11d7135104897853/b74135927.jpg" target="_blank">http://xcb.xanga.com/0d4d5a11d713510.../b74135927.jpg</a> <-- Picture was taken to show my hand knitted sweater (Oh yes, I'm so proud!)<br>
Thanks, folks.

I found this recipe but since I don't use products in my hair I don't know if it really works. <a href="http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/recipe/recipe.asp?recipe_id=214" target="_blank">http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/re...?recipe_id=214</a> But it's a start. I hope someone else can give you a better answer.

I am no help on the hair product situation. I am currently searching through posts to find a more natural pomade type hair product for dh. I did want to comment however on your sweater! That is awesome. You have every right to be proud! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Aloe vera gel works as hair gel. A dab of unflavored jello (Knox gel packets) may work. I've accidentally gotten honey water in my hair and it turned into spikey hair around my face. It had good hold.

I found these two recipes though have not tried either one.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Hair Gel (#1 is not vegan, #2 is):<br><br>
1/ 1/2 to 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin<br>
1 cup warm water<br>
Dissolve gelatin in 1 cup warm water. Keep refrigerated and use as you would a purchased gel.<br><br>
2/ One cup water<br>
2 tablespoons flax seed<br>
1-2 drops of essential oil of your choice.<br>
Combine the water and seeds in a small saucepan, bring them to a boil and then remove from heat. Set aside for a half hour. Strain through a colander. When completely cooled, add the oil and mix through. Transfer to a wide-mouthed jar with a tight lid (mason jars work well!), and use as you would any other gel product.</td>
