Default Homemade flaxseed gel vs. kccc

I've been thinking about making my own flaxseed gel when I battle my laziness. I want to know how it compares to kccc. KCCC is the best gel I've ever used and I don't know what I'd do if they ever went out of business. Does anyone know if they work similar or can you tell me what the differences are in your experience. I have 3c hair btw.

I've always wondered this as well and I think there's an old thread around here comparing the two.

I don't think it matters how much flax-seed gel is better than KCCC because I will forever be too lazy to make it. lol.

For me, the fsg has more slip and isnt sticky. Depending on how i make it the hold can rang from hard to soft. For me, they're the same. Bc the fsg is so loose, i think it allows me to make sure i get all my strands.

Witht he way I made it, I found flax seed gel to be a soft hold and then it stopped working as well. Especially in high dews. I like KCCC better.

I find Aloe Vera gel w/ jojoba and glycerin to be just as good as KCCC.

Can you post a recipe for the aloe / jojoba / glycerin I'd like to try it?

It's very simple...

I took 4 oz. of AVG (I prefer a brand that has citric acid for PH balance and no carbomer) and added a tablespoon of Aloe Vera juice and glycerin. I then used 2 tablespoons of Jojoba and stirred.
