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
