Flax seed gel is great for hair. It has high levels of essential fatty acids which are needed for healthy hair. I found that aloe vera gel tends to be more drying and stiff than the flax seed gel. At one point I was using both gels, the flax seed first, and the aloe vera if I needed more hold.

water wash or Aubrey's shampoo, Aubrey's Island Naturals + honey condition everyday, ACV cold rinse (as needed), Coconut milk leave-in (2-3 week), flax seed gel + Aubrey's Mandarin Magic gel, plop
Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
