    Great hair product.

    I bought Agar Powder by NOW Food to make a hair strengthening (DYI) cream and worked like a charm! The quality of the product was noticeable instantly upon the first steps of making the cream. Definitely recommend it for aesthetic uses.

    Great for vegetarian gelatin substitute

    Agar powder is on the expensive side but PureFormulas has as good a price as any for it. This lasted me through probably 10-12 recipes of making vegan cheese (which uses the agar to set up so you can slice it etc.). I have also used it in vegan lemon bars and pumpkin pie bars with great results. Remember that agar powder is about three times as strong as agar flakes so adjust your recipes accordingly.
