Homemade Flax Seed Gel

Standard

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!

I only have good things to say about the Eco Styling Gel.  Just see for yourself!

Before Eco Styling Gel

After Eco Styling Gel

Needless to say I am in love with this product.  In fact while I was in the States this weekend I bought three big  jars at Sally’s.  Each jar was under $3.50.  I purchase the Olive oil and the Argan oil to try.

Natural shampoo recipe

Standard

If you are not wild about the no-poo method here is a recipe that I found at wellnessmama.com.  I have been trying the no-poo method for a while now but I find that I miss the foaming aspect of shampoo.  I will definitely try this recipe in the near future.

Ingredients:

  1. Combine all ingredients in an old shampoo bottle or jar of some kind (pump soap dispensers and even foaming dispensers work well for this. If you use a foaming dispenser, add 1/4 cup of distilled water)
  2. Shake well to mix.
  3. Keep in shower for up to a month.
  4. Shake before each use.
  5. Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo
