If you are looking for an alternative gel that is more natural than Eco Styler Gel here is a great recipe you can try at home. It is easy to make and very cheap. I bought about 1.5 cup of flax seed at my local bulk store for about 0.50 cents. You can keep the gel in the fridge for 3 weeks.
You will need:
1/4 cup whole flax seed
2 cups water
Container or jar
Bring the mixture to a boil until it thickens. Make sure you stir constantly to prevent the flax seed from burning. Once ready, strain the mixture into a container or a jar.
I found the recipe from Naptural85… enjoy!
