GELAX (FLAX GEL)!

This tip is for the die hard do it yourselfers! This hair gel is safe for any ages and when you get the hang of it can be easy to do.

First boil 1 cup of water in a saucepan on high heat then add 2 tbsp. of golden whole flaxseeds (not brown) and reduce heat to medium. Stir constantly for 6-10 minutes with a whisk to ensure that the seeds do not stick to the bottom! Now keep stirring until a gel forms ( the water will appear thicker and the seeds will rise to the top) DO NOT OVERCOOK!!! Strain Immediately with a mesh sieve on top of a bowl.  With your whisk, stir the seeds in the sieve, so that most of the liquid comes out into the bowl. It will resemble slimy egg whites. In the bowl, stir the gel with a spatula a couple of times and add a few drops of your favorite essential oils (this is optional and also works as a preservative), you can also add a tsp of aloe vera gel (again optional if your hair needs more moisture)  let it sit at room temperature for about half an hour. Wash everything immediately or you will be in one sticky situation, seriously.  Pour into a funnel over your wide-mouth jar or squeeze bottle, shake and put in the fridge.  Now sit back, gelax and enjoy!
