Flaxseed gel, a miracle for your hair



FLAXSEED GEL is a natural gel that you can make yourself in 5 minutes and has many benefits for your hair! It is made by boiling flax seeds in water, which creates a gel-like substance. This gel contains several nutrients that are beneficial for the hair, such as omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and antioxidants.




  1. Hydration: Flaxseed gel has moisturizing properties and can help retain moisture in the hair, keeping it soft and supple.

  2. Reduction of frizz/frizzy hair: By applying a thin layer of gel to the hair, flaxseed gel can help reduce frizz and smooth the hair.

  3. Styling: Flaxseed gel can be used as a natural styling gel to style hair without the harmful chemicals often found in commercial styling products.

  4. Strengthening: The nutrients in flaxseed, such as omega-3 fatty acids and proteins, can contribute to the overall health of the hair, making it stronger and more resilient.

  5. Shine: Flaxseed gel can add a nice shine to the hair, making it look healthy and vibrant.

  6. Curls: linseed gel will accentuate and bring together the curls and can also bring more waves into your hair for people without waves or curls. It can therefore help to bring out the natural curl that is sometimes hidden.


To use flaxseed gel for your hair, you can apply it as a gel to damp hair, ideally after the Ayurvedic hair mask from IF YOUR HAIR IS GOOD. It works as a deep conditioner by applying it to the hair, allowing it to absorb and then rinsing thoroughly or leaving it in your hair (best to try both options yourself and see which works best for you.


However, it's important to remember that not all hair types are the same, so you may need to experiment to see how your hair responds to flaxseed gel and how often you should use it for the best results.





Here is a simple recipe to make flaxseed gel yourself:


  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 2 cups of water
  • Optional: essential oils (e.g. lavender oil, rosemary oil) for fragrance
  • (you can also just do it by feel without weighing, you can't go wrong! If you add less linseed, the gel will be runny, the more you add, the thicker the gel. The effect remains the same)


  1. Preparation: Measure 1/4 cup of flaxseed and pour 2 cups of water into a saucepan. Cooking: Add the flax seeds to the water in the saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.

  2. Stirring: Stir the pan frequently to prevent the flaxseed from sticking to the bottom and to ensure it cooks evenly.

  3. Thickening: Once the mixture starts to boil, you will notice that the water takes on a gel-like texture and a white layer forms on top. Let the mixture simmer until it reaches the desired thickness.

  4. Strain: Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes. You can then pour it through a fine sieve, nylon stocking or cheesecloth to separate the linseed residue from the gel. Press the mixture thoroughly through the sieve to extract as much gel as possible.

  5. Optional: Adding essential oils: If you wish, you can add a few drops of essential oil to the gel for a pleasant scent. Stir the essential oil well into the gel.

  6. To store: Pour the flaxseed gel into an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. The gel remains good for +_ 1 week.

And that's it! Your homemade flaxseed gel is ready to be used as a natural hair care product. Enjoy the benefits for your hair!
