Flax seed gel is amazing for wavy to extremely curly and course hair. Curls have volume, definition, and shine without crunch. Touchable curls.
Set out your container. * I'm using a cute mason jar. And your small strainer.
Bring 2c water to boil. Mix in 1/2 cup flax seeds. Stir often to keep foam at bay. Boil for about 6-8 minutes and reduce heat for 1-2min.
Flax seeds are full of omega 3 fatty acids. They are cheap, and widely available in bulk. I love this gel for air dry dos, for use with a diffuser, or a wet set.
Poor into your container.
Strain out the seeds.
* it looks like boogers by this point.
Add in 3-5 drops of essential oil. * I'm using lavender.
Let your gel stand at room temperature to cool. Once your gel has cooled place it in your fridge. I keep mine for about 2 weeks. It will start to smell FRESH when it's time to dump it.
