Hola Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is well with everyone.

Ok, so I just found out from my mom's best friend, who's also natural, that Ecostyler Gel has a carcinogen (cancer causing agent) in it called Triethanolamine (TEA). I know, I know, I know...I have done many a wash n go's using the infamous EcoStyler..I'm so disappointed, but on the other hand, happy, because I strive to keep it O'Natural for my family, for myself and for you beautiful people.

So, in actuality, this was a good thing to find out this info..thank you, Betty!!! Because now I can get my do it yourself self up and make my own natural healthy hair gel.
Seeking a natural journey is more than hair..that's the bonus..Seeking a healthier alternative to things that can cause harm to our internal health, whether food, medicine or hair and skin products, will hopefully be our main goal on a natural journey...Hair can come and go. If you can inspire one person to seek a healthier alternative then bravo to 77, my grandmother decided to go natural and seek healthier EATING alternatives for better health. Her hair is the icing on the cake..Educate yourself, share the knowledge, inspire someone..Beautiful Naturals

So, let me just breeze over what was used in this video

The Items Used:
  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 1/4 cup of Flaxseeds
  • Essential Oils of your choice ( I used Rosemary, Tea Tree, Lavender and Lemongrass Oils)
  • Tongs
  • Containers
  • Unused Stocking Sock (or you can use a strainer)
  • My Natty Oil ( for after sheen)

My personal review:

I absolutely LOVE it..I believe I have officially slept on the flaxseed gel..what took me so long, I have not a clue, but everything's on time in time.. It made my hair shiny and silky. It REALLY defined my twists and I still have the option to make it bushy..And the hold is off the chars..And NO CRUNCHY, MUNCHY Hair!! No FLAKES..How much better can it get??

The Benefits of Flaxseed Gel:
  • Inexpensive..A bag of flaxseed usually cost around $4-$6 per bag 
  • Leaves hair soft, shiny and moisturized
  • beneficial to the health of the hair
  • All Natural and you can gauge what goes in it.
  • Can reuse the Flaxseeds
  • Great for laying down those edges
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Replenishes dry brittle hair and dry scalp because Flaxseeds are rich in omega 3
Hope you enjoyed..Be sure to keep refrigerated. A batch should stay fresh for 2 weeks.

Have A Happy Healthy Day

  9. Just wondering but do you find it any different from aloe vera gel?

  10. Wow cant believe I didn't know Ecostyler Gel had that in there, I am only using flax seed gel from now on!

  11. ive recently tried the flaxseed homemade gel and yes it does hold the twist outs really good. the only down fall is the it gets flaky from the second day, so now it looks likemy hair is totally dirty :(

  12. I have alOe Vera juice. Can I use that instead? And what's the difference between the two?
