I’m always searching for nontoxic hair and body products. Often the super fabulous, all natural product lines are expensive, but I’m on a budget… I love experimenting to come up with amazing products you can make in your own kitchen, with all natural, healthy stuff!!
My hair is long and naturally wavy… I don’t use any “product” on my hair and most often it’s just allowed to air dry. I missed a hair gel that would help to define my waves and keep the frizzies away. This recipe is really easy and I love how it defines my waves (even boosts my waves to curls!) My hubby even uses it on his short hair to give him light styling control.
Homemade Hair Gel:
1c water, preferably filtered
1T Organic Flax Seeds (buy HERE)
2T Aloe Vera Gel
Wild Orange Essential Oils, Optional for scent
In a small pot, combine water and flax seeds. Bring to a boil over high heat, remove pot from stove and allow to cool slightly. Strain the liquid from the flax seeds using a strainer. Fill a spray bottle (I encourage you to save/recycle bottles for your homemade goodies!) add Essential Oil, if desired for scent.
