I just used this recipe tonight - worked on the first try! BotticelliBabe, you rock.
Mine came out just a bit thicker and a bit yellower than how you describe yours. I used the most convenient flax seeds to my commute home tonight - a bag of seeds from the Vitamin Shoppe.
I scrunched a little water into my hair (nothing in it but Lustrasilk today) and tried it as soon as it was cool enough - results were encouraging. Really nice definition.
This was fun and really pretty fast, nowhere near 10 minutes.
