Default Homemade flaxseed gel as leave in...excelent!

Hello everyone! this is my first post, I wanted to share something with you all (sorry if I have mistakes, I´m from Argentina)
I made my own gel boiling flaxseeds and just water, Is the best thing I ever tried.

What you need:

*250 ml of water
*3 flaxseeds spons

You have to boil the seeds till it gets sticky, gel consistence, once starts boiling, leave it for 5 minutes and then while is still hot you have to strain it (to take all the seeds out) do it while is hot, once it gets cold is dificult to strain it due to its concistence.

That´s it! you take to the fredge and you can use it for 10 days, after those days, maybe smells weird because it doesn´t have preservatives.

This is cheap and excelent for you hair. You have to use the gel while your hair is still wet, when it dries you can scrunch it, it becomes soft and shiny!

Hi Gixi,

I recently also decided to integrate Flax Seed as a Leave-In Conditioner.

Here is my mix:

I basically used a very diluted Flax Seed Gel.
• 2 cups of water (bottled water)
• 2.5 tablespoons Flax Seeds
• ¼ cup Fresh Aloe Vera Juice
• 1 teaspoon Grape Seed Oil
• 1 capsule Vitamin E Oil

I boil the Flax Seeds in the water, once it gets a little “slimy” I strain it and add the Aloe Vera Juice, Grape Seed Oil and Vitamin E. I put it in a spray bottle and it is not thick or heavy at all because it is so watery but still feel a little smoother and “slippery” than just plain water or Aloe Vera Juice. There is no hard hold at all but it makes my curls POP! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
