Lol I just just made fsg for the first time
Smh can I say lesson learned lol.I boiled the gel too long. so it was sooo thick couldnt get it to go thru the strainer.I had to run around tryin to find a stocky then I tired to find something to use to get it out
Smh I had to use my hands it was soooo hot lol.so I only got very lil gel
can you freeze only the flaxseed not the gel?
I wanna freeze the seeds so I can re try it
I've frozen seeds to reuse them. It worked but I had to boil them a little longer in order to achieve my desired thickness. When I froze the excess FSG that I had made, and went to use it the next day after thawing in the refrigerator overnight, it was a mess! It was watery, though some of it was still thick. It just had a horrible texture.

My hair has a mix of low/med/high porosity, and it's medium textured (some are still fine, though!)

If that happens again, just add more water until the consistency thins out enough.

You can freeze the seeds to reuse. I make large batches of FSG and Okra gel and freeze them in empty 4 oz prescription bottles. I do use a thickener and emulsify the FSG with an immersion (stick) blender. When I defrost, I just shake it up and it's fine.

Kathymack, when you defrost your FSG, do you put it in the refrigerator?
