Marinacurlz, don't you have a problem with magnesium sulfate? Or am I just imagining things? (Epsom salts = mag sulfate)

I haven't tried anything with mag sulfate in over a year so I thought I would see if this would make the reg. flax seed gel I have made work better or worse. My hair is so weird!

I'd start with a tiny bit, 1/8 teaspoon or so. My hair even hated that much

I'm like you in the sense that I can only use Jessicurl for a few days out of the week before my hair starts to feel dry and look frizzy and poofy. I tried a sample of BB's FSG and had her put in a pinch of epsom salt and the response from my hair was vastly different from when I use Jessicurl. I now make my FSG with a pinch (literally!) of mag sulfate and haven't experienced any dryness or frizz.
