Hey subbies! This is my favorite go to gel ! I don’t even buy hair gel anymore because this homemade flax seed gel infused with coconut and olive oil beats it all!

-Fast drying
-Great for wash n go’s/sleek styles/twists and twist outs and sets the twists once dry for a lovely twist out
-Mixes well with oils/conditioners/ many products
-A lot of reviews compare it to Kinky Curly’s Knot Today, but say Flax seed Gel is actually better
-Great for all hair types

How to make it:
Strainer or stocking sock
Wood spoon
Air tight container ( you can use an old product container and place stocking sock over the top part to strain it)
2 1/2 cups of water
1/4 or 1/2 cup of flax seed depending on how thick you want it
Essential oils (coconut oils or olive oil) (optional)

Pour 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of flax seed into a pot, on medium bring it to a boil stirring flax seed often with preferably a wood spoon.
Turn off heat when a white frothy gel like liquid forms (it will have a raw egg white consistency).
Continue stirring while it simmers.
Place strainer or stocking sock on top of your bowl or container and pour mixture in while still hot so it doesn’t thicken all the way because it will be harder to get all the gel out . Let it cool down and add essential oil. Proceed to use gel while hair is cleansed and damp :).
Place the rest of the gel in an air tight container. The shelf life is 3 weeks in the refrigerator .
Place used flax seeds in a container and place in fridge to use them again :).
