So I just recently got into the ‘Flaxseed movement’ and I must say, I think I made the right choice. So many other natural hair youtubers have done videos on how to make your own flaxseed gel, for example Naptural85 and BiancaReneeToday and they seem to love it, they also have two totally different curly hair textures, so it goes to show just how versatile the gel is. I have been using ecostyler gel for years, but I would like to use something more natural to lay and slay my hair/edges. I did use flaxseed gel to lay my edges and put my hair in a bun, which put it to the ultimate test. I was shook nonetheless … at how smooth it laid my hair. It is also very inexpensive, I purchased a bag of Organic Flaxseeds from Marshalls for $3.99. Now this isn’t a strong hold, which I like because ecostyler would make my hair feel crunchy and hard after awhile and it also tames the frizz, so you’ll be good. Below are the steps I used to make my own DIY Flaxseed Hair Gel and the benefits I noticed.
