I use golden flaxseed to make homemade gel. I've used it for about 8 years. I've noticed in the winter that it flakes, which is annoying, but overall it has great hold and styles easily. It just doesn't travel well. You can look up recipes online, but mine has been adjust to my needs.1 3/4 cup water. 1/3 cup golden flax. Brought to low boil and simmered/stirred for a short time until slightly thick/gel-like. Let sit off heat at an angle so that seeds sink and gel floats. Strain slowly through mesh strainer into bowl. Store in refrigerator for a day or so. I add lavender essential oil for scent.
I like to use as gel as the LO(C)! Otherwise depending on what you want, many people blend flaxseed gel into conditioner for a great slip!
