Re: Part 2 of The Jheri Juice Challengeee!!!! Want retention?? Well Come on in!!!! ;- I also use the above ratio of water to glycerin. I start by using 1/2 teaspoon or aloe vera powder and shake the bottle well until there are no lumps. I then add the glycerin, shake well. Then a tablespoon CD Hair Elixir. Something in the oil keeps this spray fresh and I dont have to refrigerate it.
