Ordering Botticelli Flax Seed Gelee Problems

Has anyone recently ordered the Botticelli Flax Seed Gelee from Etsy.com? I placed an order on Saturday but haven't gotten any confirmation from Etsy that says I placed an order. My Account on the website doesn't show the order either. Only Paypal does. I have contacted Etsy and the Botticelli seller but no one has gotten back to me.

I really want to try that gelee.

Is that website not a working website?
If you read the monster thread in the Product Reviews you'll see that this is how the shopkeeper rolls. If you like the product enough you'll cut her some slack for being so laxed LOL Some people have the patience I don't, I like prompt efficient service but I have lots of products to choose from including my OWN fsg that is cheap to make. I learned how to make it here on this site you should give it a try.

3A Med texture, normal porosity and elasticity
CG since August 2010 and loving it
Currently loving: Giovanni's tea tree low 'poo(once a week), GVP Conditioning Balm or Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya Conditioner, Honey DT's, Honey in my gel:P
Style: Gel Biosilk's Hardrock Gelee(my HG) OR Beyond The Zone Noodle Head Curl Mousse or Alba Botanical Strong Hold Gel


Loves me some VOLUME So no clumps here, Thanks!
I have ordered from her before but her shipping is so ridiculously slow that I've decided to start making my own FSG.
Hair: 3a, normal porosity and elasticity
My hair loves: Vatika and Bhringraj oils, adores henna.
My HGs: Bobeam's shampoo bars, CJAO, CJRM, Original Moxie's Hair Bling, Terressentials,

Let's hear it for beautiful curls!!!
I like the BB gelee. I almost got temted to try the new okra thing. BUT...yeah, the shipping...yeah...

SS Curling Jelly works better for me than the FSG, but now both companies are in the, "Geesh, what's up with that" files.

Good products. But issues with getting both ....one slow, one just not there and hasn't been for months.

I'm down to my last bottle of SS jelly....and would love to get more, and can't. Will I consider ordering BB FSG...well....yeah. I'm giving SS another few weeks and then I have to find an alternative that works.

Hope the shop opens soon.

Seriously, make it yourself! It's so easy, and cheap! You can customize it yourself, experiment with additives, and there is even a no-cook method!

I seriously thought it was something I'd never want to bother with, but thought I'd push myself just once. Seriously, so easy and cheap!!!

And if it ends up not working for you, you either try some different additives, or you throw it out - either way you are out virtually nothing!!

Yep! Personally I like the cook method - it means that from start to finish I have fsg within 10 minutes!

The no-cook method involves soaking seeds overnight.

I will try to find the link for it! Give me a few...

UPDATE:

Ok, so I haven't found a link for it. I think that's because my friend told me how she makes hers, and it involves soaking the seeds overnight, and then she microwaves water and puts them into that, waits a few minutes, and then strains them. Something like that... I emailed her for her instructions, but I think seh's out of town right now.

If I come across it on here I'll post a link, but so far (after very little looking) I have only found a thread about soaking prior to boiling.

Sorry! Guess I may have gotten my wires crossed. I'll keep you updated when/if I get/find more info!

Yes! That's it! At first glance I didn't think it was, but hate because the no-boil stuff starts on page 2!!

Yes, soak in Epsom!

My friend emailed me back, and that's what she said. She did microwave hers, but to a boil. But then she also did the Epsom soak!

So I heard it from her, AND read it on here - that's why I was confused! Lol

Thanks for posting the link, Wavysue!!

Seriously, cry.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Okay, at least I know I did not order wrong.

I ended up going to Whole Foods and bought some flax seed and I found the recipe on how to make your own.

While I am waiting for my order, I might was well try to make my own.
Stupid me. I only checked one size. (though I prefer the smaller, as I have very limited bathroom counter space).

I may go order that. I was waiting for the store as i want the protein spray, and CurlMart has never carried that, methinks. Really, all I need are the jelly, fhg, protein spray. I prefer the Curl Junkie condishes and leave ins.

THANKS. I'm gonna go look...

Okay. Ordered hubby's pumpkin condish and my SS stuff. Hopefully, it's not old stale stuff (I mean, let's face it, SS has not been operative for a bunch of months.)

I feel calm again, knowing I'll have my go-to jelly. Really, with the jelly, I hardly bother with gel, even. Works fine for me. A Scosh of FHG or Curl Queen on iffy weather days helps, but most days, just CJ BC LI and some SS CEJ and I'm done.

I'm waiting for the Black Friday CJ sale to stock up on rehab, BCLI, and the cleansers. Yay!

Thanks for the heads up.

Well, I made my first 2 tablespoon batch last night and it didn't come out so good. I think I over cooked it because it wouldn't go through the strainer at all. Tried two different strainers but I barely got a tablespoon out of it.

I let it simmer for 10 minutes - was that too long?
