As promised here is my flaxseed gel tutorial. Flaxseed gel is an all-natural alternative to traditional hair gel and is much cheaper as well. Only cost me $3 per bag!
Why Flax Seed Gel?
- Only 13 cents (per batch) to make
- Great hold
- All-natural (seriously)
- Dries quickly
- Easy to make
- Rich in Omega-3
- Doesn’t flake
Traditional hair gels contain tons of alcohol and other harmful ingredients that cause dryness and breakage. While the texture of flax seed gel is a bit different, it still gets the job done!
Save your gel by storing it in a container with a lid into the fridge. This will keep your gel fresh for two to three weeks at a time.
Tips for creating your own
- Be sure to not let the gel thicken up too much when making or it will be extremely hard to strain
- You won’t always gel all of the gel strained, that’s OK
- You can strain the seeds and gel using pantyhose or a tea strainer, the latter works best for me
- Practice makes perfect
- I purchased my seeds at Kroger in the organic/health food section
- Tea strainers can be purchased at most grocery stores
