All Natural Hair Gel

By . - Wednesday, May 22, 2013

I get asked where to buy a great hair gel for natural hair almost everyday. My answer is I DON'T KNOW! I just don't know. I'm not a big hair gel user since I only use if I'm doing a wash-n-go, and I really don't do those too often.

Anyway, I decided to bring you guys a great homemade hair gel that is guaranteed to rock your world. Read below and thank me later!



• 1/4 cup flaxseeds (Found at your local health food store)

• 2 cups water


• Medium Pot
• Wire Mesh Strainer
• Funnel
• Bowl
• Bottle or Jar To Store Gel In


1) Pour flaxseed and water into a medium size pot and heat on the stove.

2) Bring to a boil and then allow to boil for about 5 minutes; stir often.

3) Pay close attention during this time because you don't want it to overflow. Adjust heat as you see fit.

4) After 5 minutes turn heat down to low. Continue stirring until mixture thickens. It should be the consistency of egg whites.

5) Remove gell from the heat when it's reached desired consistency.

6) Strain the mixture to remove all the seeds.

7) Once gel has cooled slightly pour it into a bottle or jar of your choice. You will need a funnel for this part. Allow to finish cooling and then put it in the fridge.

** This must be kept in the fridge
*** Add essential oils or fragrance if you like

  1. I made this. once. I was not a fan. the hold just wasn't there. I like ORS Loc & Twist gel, it's cheap and does a magnificent job. It doesn't flake either ;)

  2. Depending on what you want to use the Gel for there are several good options.
    Darcys botanicals has two great gels:

    If you want something natural to hold down your edges, try aloe Vera Gel.
