I was over at the curlynikki forums on one of the flaxseed gel threads. I’ve heard that some people have trouble using flaxseed gel because of flaking.  Personally, I’ve never had a problem with flaking.  I was looking for confirmation.  Namely, if anyone noticed that flaxseed gel doesn’t flake when used with oil(s) or mixed with oil. 

Like I said, I’ve never had a problem with flaxseed gel flaking on my hair.  But then again, I’ve never used bare flaxseed gel on my hair without first using a DIY leave in condish or putting other oils on my hair first.  And I’ve never used flaxseed gel without first washing it, so buildup is never an issue.

I use the basic recipe:

2 cups water
3 TBSP flaxseeds (organic, brown)
Let it boil just until water starts to thicken

(for a thicker gel, use 4 TBSP (1/4 cup) flaxseeds and let it boil longer)

When I want to get fancy, I use:
1 TBSP Hibiscus and 1TBSP Burdock root
3 cups water

I make the tea and use that tea as the base. Strain it then add 3 TBSP of flaxseeds. Let it boil until the water gets thicker.

Have you noticed that flaxseed gel resists flaking if used/created with an oil? Or does it flake if you use too much no matter what?

BTW, curlytea is now on MINDS too!
Some essential oils can greatly impact the pH and decrease the viscosity of a final product
