I have another hair diy for you fabulous and frugal babes. Lately, I’ve become obsessed with making all natural hair products from home. While I’m not Madam CJ Walker, I am pretty good at reading and following directions (for the most part). My latest discovery is flaxseed gel. Some of my favorite youtubers swear by this stuff, so I decided to give it a try on my own.
1/2 cup of whole flax seeds
2 cup of water
Container with a tight lid
Step 1. Pour 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of flax seeds into a pot and bring it to a boil.
Step 2. Continue to stir the water and flax seeds until you get a gel like substance. Turn the stove off and continue to stir.
Step 3. Place strainer on top of a container, and pour the mixture in. You can clean and reuse an old product container, if you’d like.
Step 4. Let the mixture cool, close the container with an air-tight lid, and refrigerate. The gel lasts 2 weeks refrigerated. It can last up to 3 weeks, if you add an essential oil to the mixture before refrigerating.
