DIY Rosewater Flaxseed Spray Gel

Flaxseed Spray Gel

                        Flaxseed Spray Gel

Yes you read that right, DIY Flaxseed Spray Gel!

It is basically Flaxseed Gel that I dilute down to make it thin enough to pass through a spray pump and spray out evenly… nothing revolutionary but I LOVE it!

I have a video up explaining my process (below)

How I make it

  1. To make my mix I use my DIY Rosewater infused Flaxseed Gel recipe

You watch the video the “how to” video below:

Regular Flaxseed Gel Recipe

  • 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) 

Spray Flaxseed Gel Recipe

To make the Spray I then add extra

  • Rosewater*
  • Plain bottled water*

to thin it out and throw the mix in my blender. I add the liquids a little at a time.

*To water it down you can use any liquid of choice.

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. 

Flaxseed Spray and Regular Gel

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! 

Thanks
