hair gel recipe Hair Gel Recipe Using Flax Seed

Making homemade hair gel has been on the creative teams list for some time now.  However, now knowing how easy this recipe is to make, we are overcome with all of the possibilities that this simple hair gel recipe provides.  In fact, one of the best aspects of this natural hair gel recipe is that it can be customized specifically for your hair type.

The basic recipe has 4 ingredients.  They are flax seed, distilled water, optiphen, and fragrance.  That is it!  Although as mentioned earlier other additives can be introduced.   Some of these examples would include:

Epsom Salt can be added to your recipe to intensify curls
Honey can be added to increase your hair gels hold
Jojoba Oil or Shea Butter are two great ingredients to provide moisturizing elements to your gel
Slippery Elm Bark can be added to increase your gels slip

Through our research, we have found that there are 2 options when it comes to creating your very own hair gel.  What it breaks down to basically is soaking overnight vs. boil time.  By soaking your flax seed the night before you decrease the amount of cooking time the hair gel is on the stove top.  Soaking will also boost your gel output.

This hair gel recipe is perfect for wavy or curly hair.  Not only will this gel moisturize and help define the curls, but it will not leave your curls stiff or crunchy.

There are currently 3 different versions of the hair gel recipe available on Natures Gardens website.  They are Silky Hair Gel Recipe, Curl Pop Hair Gel Recipe, and Shea Butter Hair Gel Recipe.  Each one is very easy to make and the recipes do vary slightly.  Although each one of these recipes do call for a recommended fragrance oil for scent, you can use any body safe fragrance oil that Natures Garden carries.  Just check out the Recommended Fragrance Usage for Bath Oils, Soaps, and Bath Gels (IFRA category 4) for the percentage rate of usage (located under the fragrance oil description area).

So, if you are ready to give this really easy to make recipe a try, let’s get started!  Today we will be making 8 ounces of Curl Pop Hair Gel.

Here is the list of ingredients and supplies you will need:
Scale
Distilled Water
Flax Seed Whole
Glass Bowl
Mixing Spoon
Pot
Spatula
Epsom Salt
Knee High Pantyhose (brand new)
Thermometer
NG Biolage Matrix Type Fragrance Oil
OPTIPHEN – Preservative
Whisk
Funnel
8oz. Purple PET Bullet Bottle
Black Lotion Pumps 24/410

soaking the flax seed overnight
Step 1:
 Place your glass bowl onto your scale and tare out the weight.  Then, carefully weight out 43 grams of flax seed and tare out the weight again.  Next, to the bowl add 440 grams of distilled water.  Using your mixing spoon, give these two ingredients a quick stir.  Finally, cover the bowl and place it into the refrigerator overnight.

Step 2:
 After your flax seed has soaked overnight, take the bowl out of the fridge.  Remove the cover.  Using your spatula, scrap all of the mixture into your pot.  Now, to the mixture weight out and add 3 grams of Epsom Salt.  Once added, place the pot on the stove top and set the heat to high.  Generously stir the mixture as it is heating.

Step 3:  Once the mixture is at a consistent boil, reduce the heat to a medium setting.  Keep stirring the mixture.

Step 4:  Let the mixture cook for 5 minutes on the medium heat setting.  Remember to keep the mixture moving by stirring.  When you see the flax seed staying suspended in the mixture, remove the pot from the heat source and turn it off.

Step 5:  Now, get a container and place your brand new pantyhose over the opening.  Carefully pour the gel into the hosiery.   Once the mixture is all there, immediately rinse out the pot (this will save you scrubbing time later).

Step 6:  Caution the mixture is hot!  Now, apply pressure to the pantyhose to strain out as much gel as possible (if you use tongs, just be careful not to put a run in your pantyhose).  You will notice that you really have to apply force to get the gel out among all of the flax seed.  When finished, remove the pantyhose.

monitor your hair gel temperature

Step 7:  To make this step less messy, we transferred the gel back into the mixing bowl.  Temperature is very important to this step, so place your thermometer in your hair gel now.  Once the temperature of the gel reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit, quickly add 3 grams of Optiphen and 13 grams of NG Biolage Matrix Type Fragrance Oil.

Step 9:  Once the hair gel has cooled, place your funnel into your bottle, and fill.   Then,  lid with a pump.

Your Curl Pop hair gel is now ready to use.  Simply pump the gel into the palm of your hand and apply as you normally do.  You are going to love how great your hair smells and looks all day long!
