Flaxseed hair gel is absolutely AMAZING. I made a small batch last night to test it out and my hair has never felt so soft! It is so easy to make and is a much better alternative to other hair gels full of chemicals and alcohol (yuck!). I will definitely be making this gel more often, especially when I start to run out of my other leave-ins.

Flax Seed Hair Gel Recipe
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup flax seeds
- 1 drop rosemary essential oil
- 1 tsp. olive oil
Bring 1 cup of water to a rapid boil. Add ½ cup of flaxseeds, stirring frequently.
Allow flaxseeds to boil for 5-7 minutes, or until a white mucus-looking layer forms on the top. The goal is to form a gel like consistency.
Remove from heat and use a strainer to separate flaxseeds from gel. This may take some time but be patient and use a spoon to help push the gel through the strainer.
Once strained, add your oils. I added olive oil for a bit of moisture, as well a drop of rosemary essential oil to promote hair growth.
Allow to cool for a few hours. I let mine cool overnight. The gel should last you 1 week but may last longer with other essential oils.
*Yields ¾ gel or enough for 1 use
I loved the results!! My curls are super bouncy and feel amazing. Definitely give this recipe a try!
Peace, Love & Coconuts
