DIY Rosewater Flaxseed Spray Gel

Hi Maicurlies,

So I have been experimenting again! And I am excited to share my…

Flaxseed Spray Gel

                        Flaxseed Spray Gel

Yes you read that right, DIY Flaxseed Spray Gel!

Now let me clarify, it is basically Flaxseed Gel that I dilute down to make it thin enough to pass through a spray pump and spray out evenly… I LOVE it!

I have a video up explaining my process (below)

How I make it

To make my mix I use my DIY Rosewater infused Flaxseed Gel recipe and then add extra

  • Rosewater*
  • Plain bottled water*

to thin it out. I also throw the mix in my blender to pulse it and that is it!

*To water it down you can use any liquid of choice. I choose to use Rosewater and plain water because I actually use them in my Flaxseed Gel recipe and because I my hair loves them.

You watch the video  of how I make my DIY Rosewater infused Flaxseed Gel below:

Remember

When making the spray, there are two things you need to make sure of:

  1. You are using a spray bottle that will evenly mist out the spray instead of “spit out” the gel.
  2. You have the right consistency so that the pipe of the spray will actually pickup the gel. 

*It might take a bit of trial and error till you find the right container and get the right consistency for your spray.

When do I use the spray?

  • I like to use this on dry hair since it is gives a light hold so using it on wet hair would just further dilute down the gel.
  • I use it to help tame flyaways
  • Lightly holdup an updo
  • When I do not want to dampen my hair with too much products (e.g. when my hair is stretched)
  • When I want to have gentle hold on a twist-out with out resorting to using a lot of gel (e.g. if I need to touch up a twist-out but do not want to waste products on hair that will be washed in a day). 

Do you use a spray gel? If so what do you use? I you try Flaxseed Spray Gel I would love to hear about your experiences!

Wash and Go with Flax Seed Gel

Hi Maicurlies!

wash-n-go FSG

I decided to make a video of how I do my Wash and Go using my Rosewater infused Flax Seed Gel (FSG). Only then did I notice that I never made a write up of my “Simple Wash and Go”. I need to update my Wash-n-Go Page because it only includes how I maintain a Wash and Go over a week. So I have a little bit of writing to do over the next few days. (I am on it)! 

You can find my Simple Wash and Go method on YouTube as well as my Wash and Go with Flax Seed Gel. I also attached it to my Video page on the blog. These are the products I used (I linked all the recipes as well):

I apply the products in that order and have no issues to “trap” in the FSG with my mixed sealing oil because apart from being a great styling product with hold, FSG is moisturizing and nourishing for the hair and scalp! I also occasionally mix my FSG with my “Creamy” Leave-In Conditioner in a separate container and then apply it in one go. 

I will have a detailed write up of the process … I promise! 

Thanks

Rosewater Flaxseed Gel

Hi Maicurlies,

I have mentioned the benefits of Rosewater for Hair and Skin and in honor of Rosewater (which I LOVE) I have been experimenting. What did I do? Rosewater Infused Flaxseed Gel (FSG)! Verdict? I LOVE it!

Rosewater Infused Flaxseed Gel

Apart from that delicious Rose smell I love the moisturizing effects I get from the gel. I normally make FSG with either plain distilled water or distilled water and Aloe Vera Juice (AVJ) and my hair does feel moisturized from it but the Rosewater seems to give it that edge!

So after weeks of experimenting (I have to do trail and error for a few weeks before I announce anything) I can say I absolute love incorporating Rosewater to my gel!

This is the recipe I use:

  • 2 cups of Distilled Plain Water
  • 1/2 cup Rosewater
  • 1/2 cup Flax Seeds – (use less seeds if you want a thinner gel)
  • 1 teaspoon Grapeseed oil (use any carrier oil of choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Glycerin (optional – not everyone hair likes Glycerin) 
  • 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil (use any EO of choice) 

I manage to get 3/4 cup of thick FSG with this recipe. If you do not like your Gel to be thick you can use less flaxseeds. While the Gel is thick I do not get any flaking or crunch (if I use too much gel and my hair does feel a little “stiff” it goes away once I scrunch my hair.)

I have a video demonstrating how I make my Rosewater Infused Flaxseed Gel on YouTube and as always have linked it here on my Video Page. I also have my “original” FSG recipe listed on my Blog here. I love experimenting so I am sure that Rosewater Infused Flaxseed Gel will not be my last experiment but I must say this is going to be my staple. 

Have you used Rosewater in your FSG? If so, what is your recipe and how does yout hair respond to it? If not, how do you make your DIY Gel?

Thanks
