Flaxseed gel revisited - The How-To, The Application, The Results

Well, Well!!!!!   I never thought I would have a desire to ever make flaxseed gel again let alone use it again.  Yet, I sit here with flaxseed gel in my hair waiting for it to dry so that I can video my results.

You see I've made and used flaxseed gel early in my natural hair journey.   I even posted the recipe to my blog here.  But I was not impressed with flaxseed gel.  I mean what it did for me, my beloved(at the time) Tresemme did for me so I didn't see a need to go through all of that preparation in making it PLUS I didn't like the idea of "gel" in my hair, even if it was all natural.

Boy, what a difference a year makes!!!!

So now I find myself at a  place where I want to try it again all because I was watching my fellow you-tube friend, TyCrable, on her video making flaxseed gel and applying it to her hair.  Her results were so outstanding.  She had frizz-free, super defined curls.  I mean her hair look great and I was so impressed by her results I wanted to try it again to see if my results would be similar. So here I am a year later having to find a replacement for my Tresemme Naturals because they have a new formula for their conditioner.  I don't like many of the new ingredients AND I've taken a turn in my thinking and my heart to wanting to use more natural products.  I still do not want to use gel in my hair but I am not opposed to the idea of an all natural gel in my hair.  This stuff felt so good going on my hair that I THINK I've found my new "love"....we'll see.   So here are my series of videos where I show the recipe I used to make my flaxseed gel, how I apply it to my hair, and my end results.  Enjoy and let me know if you have ever tried flaxseed gel and if so, how did it work for you?
