DIY Organic Hair Gel for Shiny, Moisturized Hair

by Amanda

Every woman with tightly curled and coily hair dreams of the styling product that applies like a cream, holds like a gel, does not have crunch, imparts shine, and is not drying. Does that exist? Well, I can only name a few that live up to all of those expectations. Many of us resort to layering moisturizer, milks, oil, and butters to make up for what the gel lacks but why? A styler does not have to be limited to adding hold and it should also be chock-full with nutrients.

Bri aka Smartistabeauty gives a DIY gel that does all of those things and it is completely organic, which is always a plus. Her concoction consists of the following:
  • Flax seeds - packed with omega 3 fatty acids, promotes hair growth, shine & moisture, fights hair loss
  • Chia seeds- similar benefits as flaxseed
  • Vitamin E oil -  prolongs shelf-life 
  • Fresh aloe vera - humectant, natural conditioner, pH balances the hair, helps hair retain moisture
  • Essential oil of choice

In the name of #curlsonfleek, our hair can become dry and brittle to the touch due to holding ingredients like polymers and certain polyquats present in our styling products.

If you follow the Max Hydration Method, swear by the Curly Girl Method, or just are an avid fan of more natural than synthetic hair products, then this list is for you!

Why go botanical?

Flaxseed Gel Versus Aloe Vera Gel- Natural Hair Styling Products

Ever since one of our favourite curly YouTubers, Naptural85, started singing the praises of flaxseed gel it has quickly become popular in the natural haired community. Many curlies have reported amazing results with this all natural gel and have jumped off the aloe vera ship swam ashore and hopped on the flaxseed bandwagon. But the all-important question still remains- which one is better? Is good old faithful aloe vera gel still number one or has its popularity been stolen by the new kid on the block flaxseed gel? To answer this question we will have to assess this issue from all sides so let the battle of the gels begin.

A gel that does not provide good hold is hard to incorporate into a hair regimen after all what do you use it for? Whilst aloe vera gel does provide slight hold flaxseed gel definitely wins this round. Pure aloe gel that has not had other ingredients, like thickeners, added to it simply does not have the ability to really set the hair for that amazing twist or braid out. Flaxseed on the other hand provides great hold which is surprising because of its watery consistency. I've seen curlies use this gel for everything from twist outs to roller sets with results that left me with serious cases of hair envy.
