No, it doesn't have alcohol in it. That looks pretty good actually, a lot like what I put in my homemade flax seed gel(only with some more natural ingredients). What's the name of that gel?

Yeah, what is the name of this mystery gel, and where did you get it?

k well i got a sample of the aveda flax gel and loved it , so i realized that the aveda 8oz wouldnt last me long , so i googled and found like only 3 sites that have a gallon. so this site is called Internatural . and for a gallon of Nirvana flax gel its $70, i know its alot but everything over $50 is free ground shipping and this would last me a long while , the other two sites are roughly about the same with $3-$4 diff and that including shippng too..i didnt order yet cuz i read u guys mentioned about alcohol in it and i wanted to make sure this one doesnt have any.. i noticed i needed a pump to go with it and the other 2 sites didnt have any , weird huh , but this one had 2 pumps so i put in for one that was $2.55 ( the cheapest) so in total it comes too $73.50, so ya i think im gonna order it 2morrow , it takes about 4-5 biz days to get here to CA so thats not bad since im in no hurry ( the other sites were the same in shipping days to CA , unless i wanted to pay more in gettin it quicker which added up to $100 . yikes! ) .
Edit: i figured with the price this gel would last me for months so it pay for itself in the long run , plus i tend to rotate my products like i always use a curl creme before a gel etc.

I am also intrigrued, please post results when you use it. :D

tinicurlyd 05-08-2007 10:11 PM

I sure will once i order it! :D

heavengirl410 05-08-2007 10:15 PM

So I googled Nirvana, and it says discontinued on this site, I hope not!!

tinicurlyd 05-08-2007 10:22 PM

Well i only was able to get just 3 sites on Nirvana flax gel and they are all in stock. :D

Yes, please do post results. I'm anxious to find out if it works as well as the Aveda flax seed gel. If so, I'll have to order some since it has no alcohol.

I just bought the 2oz version - it was really cheap and with my fine/thin hair I dont use alot of product - I figure if I like it I will get more. I also ordered the Head clearly shampoo - that was on sale too. With both items and shipping only $14.

heavengirl410 05-09-2007 09:19 AM

Xcptnl- Where did you order it from? The same site that Tinicurlyd did?

tinicurlyd 05-09-2007 10:11 AM

ya xcptnl did u order it at the same site i found ? i havent ordered mine yet , just got up and was ordering some dog stuff for my chihs but when i get dressed im gonna order the gallon flax gel on Internatural ( im thinking i should order mabye an 8oz to see how it goes first ) . :D

xcptnl 05-09-2007 11:02 AM

Yes, the site you mentioned is where I ordered the gel and the shampoo. I was glad to see the 2 oz size - that way if I dont like it it's not a huge bottle in the product graveyard :D

tinicurlyd 05-09-2007 12:10 PM

Hm i did a search for like an 8oz of flax seed and keep on getting either no results or the gallon flax seed comes up, what did u put in the search area on the internatural site ?

tinicurlyd 05-09-2007 12:18 PM

Ah now it came up..guess the search is a lil sensative , anyways all they have is the 2oz flax seed besides the gallon so ill buy the 2oz to try it out see how it goes. :D
