    Hi everyone, Im trying to replicate a favourite hair gel of mine. Its texture is almost like slime (can be picked up and won’t stick to my fingers, breaks when agitated but stretches slowly) Here’s an ingredient list

    Water,Sorbitol,Polyacrylate-14, Hydrogenated Castor Oil,Aloe Vera juice,Blueberry fruit extract, Keratin, Hydrolyzed Quinoa,Silk Amino acids,Panthenol, Shea Butter,Mango seed butter,Argan oil,Evening primrose oil,Jojoba esters, Tocopherol acetate,Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate Carbomer, Aminomethyl propanol, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol,Tetrasodium EDTA, Fragrance, Citric acid.

    I can’t find polyacrylate-14 so my fixing ingredients available to me are PVP-K90, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Cross Polymer, Carbopol 940, I also have PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor oil.

    The main goal right now is to replicate that viscosity. Id like to some help on how to achieve that or if it’s only possible with polyacrylate-14. Ive attached a video for reference.
