This week I made what may be my best batch of flax gel yet! too soon to tell how it will perform over time, but I like it so far.
I made the flax gel following BB's method with:
2 cups distilled water
1/2 cup golden flaxseed
handful of dried hibiscus flowers
After straining the gel, I added 1 teaspoon jojoba oil, 1 teaspoon argan oil, 1/2 teaspoon vegetable glycerin, 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar, 2 oz seamollient, and 1/4 teaspoon optiphen (preservative). Once the gel cooled to room temperature, I poured it into an 8 oz bottle with a flip top cap and put it in the refrigerator. Even with the preservative, I don't feel quite safe leaving a homemade mixture in the bathroom.
Type 2b. Wash: WEN pomegranate or fig. Leave-in conditioner: Alaffia beautiful curls for wavy hair, Spiral Solutions Protein spray. Style: Curls In A Bottle, Ecostyler, or KCCC.
