Sorry, I meant to update yesterday--but forgot. I let it steep for an hour. No discernible thickening. I took the seeds out of the bag--they were all clumped together, so I used a whisk to separate them in the bowl and let it sit. I had a gelled liquid with little seeds. No hair product. I've started adding the gel to my morning yogurt, etc. I will add seeds when the gel is gone--didn't want to waste it.

I think it will take time to see if it's an appetite suppressant! Everything I've read says these are really good for you. So, it can't hurt.
