Flaxseed gel is probably one of the best DIY (homemade) gels to be used for styling our curly or wavy hair. There are various reasons why I favour the use of flaxseed gel. 1. It is very (very veryyyy) cost effective. 100gms flaxseed costs about 120bucks. It yields about 30+ cups of hair gel. 2. Flaxseed gel provides nourishment to the hair and keeps it healthy 3.

Did this kindle your interested in learning how to make this super awesome gel? I […]
