Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Distilled Water
Scale
Glass Bowl
Mixing Spoon
Spatula
Pot
Knee High Pantyhose (brand new)
Whisk
Funnel

Total Recipe Weights:
440 grams of Distilled Water
43 grams of Flax Seed Whole

Step 1:  In your glass bowl weigh out the distilled water and flax seed.  Using a mixing spoon, give these ingredients a good stir.  Then, cover your bowl and place it in the refrigerator overnight.

Step 2:  The next day, use a spatula to get all of the ingredients into a pot.  Place the pot on the stove top.  Set the heat setting to high.  Stir this mixture generously as it heats.

Step 3:  Once the mixture is at a consistent boil, reduce the heat setting to medium.  Keep stirring.  You will notice as the mixture cooks that it will become thicker in consistency. 

Step 4:  After the mixture has cooked for 5 minutes, you will notice that the flax seeds will stay suspended in the gel.  Now, turn your stove off.  Remove the pot.

Step 5:  Place the pantyhose over the container you will be straining into.  Now, carefully pour the mixture into the hosiery.   Once all of the mixture is out of the pot, rinse the pot out. 

Step 6:  Next, apply pressure to the pantyhose to get as much gel out as possible.  Caution:  It will be hot.  When finished, remove the pantyhose containing the flax seeds.

Step 7:  Next, place your thermometer into the gel. When the temperature reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add 3 grams of Optiphen and 13 grams of Icy Shine Fragrance Oil.  Carefully, use your whisk to incorporate the fragrance oil and Optiphen into the gel.  

Step 8:  Once the gel has cooled, use a funnel to pour it into your bottle.  Apply the pump lid. 

Your
silky hair gel is now ready to use.
