I shall happily join the group of those singing praises to flaxseed hair gel.
Over the past year I decided to go natural in my hair care and have tried a lot of new things: washing with chickpea flour, washing with rice flour, washing with baking soda, washing with soap nut powder (shikakai), rinsing with vinegar, rinsing with apple cider, rinsing with honey, applying DIY hair masks (dear …

This is so cheap and easy to make and it's the best gel I've ever used. My 2-3a hi po hair is so frizz prone, but easily weighed down by heavy products. With the flax seed gel, I don't weigh it down no matter how much I use, so my hair is actually curlier than usual. It gives me defined, soft, TOUCHABLE curls they don't frizz or go crunchy and brittle. It's also CHEAP …Read more

Best styler I've ever used for my confused 2a/2b dry, frizz-prone hair. It leaves me with defined, frizz- free waves that are still soft and touchable. Normally if I've used a curl cream or gel in my hair detangling while dry is a no go, but this is easily combed out with little to no tangles. There is a slight yeasty/bready smell if you put your nose right up close to the gel, but no …Read more

Just hands down the best thing I have ever put in my hair. For real.

I make a very thick version on the stovetop, just the seeds and water. I don't use anything added to it or layered under it, just a couple of large blobs worked through my wet curls. My hair air-dries shiny, spirally, and defined.

Also, unlike pretty much every other hair product, flaxseed gel …

Where have you been all my life? Absolutely delighted with this .. it's a wonderful liquid styling gel for my curly frizzy hair. Makes hair soft and silky too. So happy to have found the recipe and it's so cheap to make as well.

I have fine medium length 3A curls. I went CG about 6 months ago and I am so glad I have found this recipe. It is the best for my hair.

Now, I wash daily because my curls are fragile. After sleeping on them, the are a lost cause. Anyway, I had read on other sites how great flax seed gel is so when I found a simple recipe, I thought I would give it a try.

I use this …

Edit- adding a couple of drops of honey and (simmered till thick) coconut milk (about 1/4 can for 2 T flaxseeds' gel) makes the curls last. Aloe vera mixed in also helps. --

he majority of reviews have described in great detail how to make this--i want to add my experience with the resulting 'product.' smooth, bouncy curls (pincurl set), yes, but i have had better …

At first, I found this incredibly difficult to make. If you wait for the boiling liquid to evaporate, you will have a thick lump of slime from which it is impossible to strain out the seeds. You need to strain this when it is still fairly liquid or add liquid if you've missed the boat.

I also boiled methi (fenugreek) seeds with the (organic) flax seeds as in India they are …

Okay, so I have experimented with the 'recipe' out there, which is basically boil 1 tbsp. of flax seeds in 1 cup of water for about 10-15 min. Then spend like an hour straining the seeds out !!! Ain't nobody got time for that! What I've found is you don't need to boil it until it becomes all goopy to work, and if you want you don't even have to boil the seeds - just …Read more

I have made this a few times every couple of months to use as a styling gel. It gives amazing shine and curl definition for me as it is completely organic. I only make small batches and keep in the fridge for a day or two since I don't add any preservatives in mine and don't want to risk spoilage. I usually experiment with consistency and prefer it to be slightly liquidy. It has decent …Read more
