I’ve been having some issues with the Ecostyler gel creating a white residue in my hair when I use it. However, as I’ve done some of my research, I’ve come across several people that swear by it. I decided to dig a little bit more to see if I could find out how they are using it and what they do, if anything, to prevent the residue. As I was reading I came across a blog posting by UrbanBushBabes with a recipe for making your own gel out of flax,seeds. This piqued my interest so I did some more research and came across tons of YouTube vids by people who make their own gel using flax seeds and how well it works for them. So, me being the do it yourselfer that I am, decided that I wanted to try it as well. Turns out it was very simple to make.
From what I read and saw in vlogs online, this should keep in the refrigerator for about 3 weeks or so. I put the used flax seeds into a container and put them in the refrigerator to use next time.
I used a little bit to try to smooth down my edges, but it didn’t work too well for that. So I will see how it works on holding curls and post about that when I try it.
