How to Make a Flax Seed or Flax Seed Hair Gel

We already know that flax or linseed seeds are excellent for health (you can see their nutritional properties here ). What you may not know is that in addition to using them ground on your favorite dishes or making drinks with flax , these beneficial seeds can also be applied externally and thus take advantage of all their benefits.

Learn how to make this hair gel with flax seeds or linseed to get:

  • stronger hair
  • prevent hair loss or alopecia
  • make your hair shinier and healthier
  • more defined and flexible curls
  • avoid frizz or frizz
  • more hydrated hair
  • very soft hair
  • get hold without using hairspray, foam, hair gel or setting gels

The benefits that flaxseed has for our hair is mainly due to the mucilages that these seeds have, which are responsible for giving that gelled or viscous texture that the seeds take.

This recipe is a natural, homemade and inexpensive alternative that cares for and pampers your hair.

To make the linseed or flaxseed hair gel you only need

  • 1 saucepan
  • strainer
  • 1 tablespoon and a half flax seeds
  • 200 ml of water
  • glass jar
  • wooden spoon or spatula

Put the water to heat over medium heat. Once it starts to boil add the flax seeds and stir from time to time with the spoon. It will be ready when you put the spoon in and you see that a thread with texture like a gel falls from it. It usually takes no more than 10 minutes. The denser the gel, the more it will cost to strain it. It is important that you strain the seeds right away (if the mixture cools down and you don’t strain it before, it will be almost impossible to do it later) and keep it in a glass jar.

The gel will keep for 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator or refrigerator.

How to apply flaxseed gel

You can use this gel in two ways:

1 _ Like a mask , applying it after shampooing, let it act for a few minutes and then rinse.

2_ Another way to apply it is with clean hair by putting a little of the gel in the palm of your hand and spreading it over the hair or scalp in the areas you want to treat. It is not clarified.
