I finally got around to making some of this with BB's recipe, after soaking the flax seeds for ~2 hours.
It's awesome! The texture is kinda snotty and gooey and some other fluids
but I kind of like it. It's like Gak. But it spreads through my thick hair easily, and I don't have to use toooo much to get everything covered. The plain FSG does have a bit of a nutty scent, but it doesn't linger on my hair.
The hold is kind of light, but I like that. I HATE the crunchiness of all the store bought gels I've tried, and this scrunches out with no problems. It also feels a bit moisturizing. I think my next batch I'm gonna try boiling it with some marshmallow root as well for more extra gooey moisture.
