DIY Flaxseed Gel Recipe for Natural Hair 

My favorite DIY for my hair probably has to be my flaxseed gel.

What I Used:

  • 1/4 Cup Flaxseed
  • 2 Cups Water
  • Avocado Oil (from Queen of Curls)
  • JBCO
  • Aloe Vera Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Wig Cap
  • Plastic Tongs
What I Did:
  1. Combine the flaxseed and water in a pot and let it boil for 10-15 minutes. I continued to stir sporadically so that the flaxseed didn’t stick to the sides or bottom of the pot.
  2. In the meantime, I took a wig cap and placed it over the lid of the container that I was going to use. In Naptural85’s video (which was my inspiration) she used cheap pantyhose, which I didn’t have so I improvised.
  3. I waited until the top of the mixture was thick and white. Then I slowly poured the mixture into the container. I used plastic tongs to strain the rest of the gel from the flaxseed. It got a little tough towards the bottom, but I was able to squeeze out the majority of the gel.
  4. I added a few oils to my mixture: Coconut, avocado, castor, and aloe vera oil. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have added coconut oil because it solidifies under 75 degrees and this mixture has to sit in the fridge. I also want to use Vitamin E next time, because it’s a natural preservative.
  5. I let it sit in the fridge to cool for a few hours.
I really like the consistency, and I think it’s so cool that I made my own gel! This is supposed to last for 3 weeks, and it’s A LOT of gel, especially for 1/4 cup of flaxseed. Like I said, this only costs about $4 and the flaxseed can be reused. I haven’t used it yet, but I’ll be making a few tutorials over the next few weeks and I’ll let you guys know how it works.

😀 Many thanks for reading my Loves, if you try this recipe, do let us know via comment below, thank you and Enjoy 😀
