I figured it's be cool for people to share any useful "do it yourselfers" they know about. So this thread is for people who feel like sharing instructions on how to do things yourself, that people normally rely on going to a store to buy something or paying for a service to do. So I recently found out how to make my own hair gel at home. Hair gels are always either overpriced or terrible for hair and unnatural...or both. I got tired of buying the natural over priced stuff from Whole Food's ect so I looked for a way to make my own. I was sure that there was a way and I was right. You can make you own hair gel by simply doing the following: 1. put 1/3rd cup of flax seeds into a pot. 2. add distilled water(I just wing it, depends how thick you want the gel) 3. Boil the seeds for about 5-7mins 4. Once done the water should have become a very gel/snot like consistency. It's quite nasty lol. 5. Grab a very fine strainer that won't let the seeds fall through. Pour the gel through the strainer into the container of your choice. 6. Now you have the gel and can use it once it cools. Flaxseeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are very good for the body and hair. The gel will contain a lot of that and actually make your hair healthier. To boost things up a bit you can add oils of your choice to the gel while it's still hot. Oils like virgin coconut oil, virgin olive oil, natural scented oils, almond oil, aragan oil. Just to name a few. For mine I used coconut oil, olive oil and sandalwood scent oil(smells great). So far it works better than anything I've used and I like that I can add what I want to it, making it my own. The only draw back is you do have to refrigerate it, but it lasts about 2 weeks or a bit more. It's way cheaper though and better for your hair. Hope you enjoy if you decide to try it.
