Commercial sub for fsg?
 
I've been using fsg for about a month and love what it does to my hair. But I don't always have time to make it so am wondering if there's something that has the same effect that I could buy as a back up?

Jessicurl Rockin' Ringlets is flax seed based. Not everyone loves it due to the mag sulfate in it though. I've never made my own but have bought FSG from Botticelli Botanicals on etsy and definitely prefer the Jessicurl RR.

There is a company on Etsy that sells it. I bought some before I decided to make it myself. It was moisturizing.

Have you tried just soaking the flax seeds overnight or all day and then just straining it? I do this when I lack for time and it works just as well as when I boil it.

Thanks everyone. I definitely need to get something that I can travel with too, so will try some of these products.

Seriously? That would be awesome!

Yes! here is what I do. 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt to 1/4 cup of flax seeds and 1 cup of water and let it soak all day long and then strain it and it turns out just fine, no boiling required :)

I'll have to try that next time. What's the sea salt for? I put epsom salt in my last batch to increase curl (haven't tried it yet though).

I just use sea salt instead of Epsom salt is all. You can use the Epsom salt if you like
