I went to Horns & Halos' Zombie Ball and the hawk flew for the first time in months! It's about 10 inches now and solid black. I put it up into four liberty spikes for the ball.
I used half the water I normally use.
1/4 cup water
1 packet knox
I put the water in a mug and heated in the microwave for 55 seconds. Right after, I poured in the Knox packet all at once. It took about 5 minutes of stirring with the spoon to dissolve the… Continue

I've created a group for people who use Knox Gelatine in their hair.
Not sure how to spike your hair with gelatine?

I was at work the other day and I noticed something while surfing the internet. During a conversation with a coworker about my mohawk and how I get it up, I brought up a Google search for Knox Gelatine.
Check it out!
I think that's pretty badass.
My hair is currently RED
and chin-length. I keep forgetting about… Continue

I haven't put my hair up since that last blog post. =(
I haven't had a haircut either. The sides have grown out to an inch and a half. I need to get a trim, and re-bleach the middle.
This mohawk is the thinnest one I've ever had, it's about 2 inches wide... It's also approaching being the longest I've ever had.
I'm not sure how this is going to affect the Knox process of putting it up, but when I finally get the sides trimmed, I'm going to attempt making more of a gel… Continue

If you've got a mohawk and need to spike it, check out the method I use. It's hard to find information about this kind of thing, so after lots of trial and error I've started working on this HowTo. I'll be editing it as I find out ways to improve upon it. I also will try to get a video HowTo, as soon as I can find a camera.
KILLER SPIKES: Knox Gelatine and YOU
For huge spikes, Knox has got to be the way to go.
The first time I tried using… Continue

It's day 4 of having my hawk charged with Knox using the method I described in the forums.
On day two, I used hairspray on the base of the spikes to reinforce.
After that, no touch-ups.
From the pics, you can see what happened with using blue food coloring in the Knox mixture. It just made it look like I went swimming a lot. Next time, I will try half the water and double the food… Continue

The food coloring made the consistency of the Knox mixture a little too watery, and my bathroom got so messy from it. I think, if I use food coloring, I should use MORE of it, and not use as much water. Also, I used blue food coloring, and by the time the hawk was up, my bleached hair was more of a pukey light-greenish bleached-type hair. Not blue.
In short, adding food coloring to Knox gelatine is messy business, indeed. I'd almost rather never try it again.
But I… Continue

Tonight I'm attempting to use my soon-to-be-perfected Knox routine, but I've added about 25 drops of food coloring to the mix. We'll see how this turns out.

I just spent about 20 minutes at youtube.com/fordmodels because of an ad on the MR homepage...
From fake punk rock hairstyles to a segment on "bringing back the bun," I learned way more about trendy hair shit than I thought I would today.
I need to get away.
