Natural Hair: Two Strand Twists Using Flax Seed Gel

Hey Curlies,

I hope you all enjoyed my flax seed gel tutorial. If you haven't seen it yet, click here. I couple of days ago I gave my hair a good wash and condition with my usual (Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo and TRESemme Naturals Conditioner).

This week I wanted to give my hair a rest and put some twists in. I thought about blow drying it first but then I decided against it because of time and the look I wanted to achieve. It's weird, sometimes I want to wear a shorter look. In that case I just style my hair while it's wet without stretching.

For my twists I used:
  • Butters-n-Bars Shea Butter
  • Flax seed gel
The last two weeks I had been wearing wash-n-go puffs so I did not detangle my hair. This detangling session was rough! lol.

Here are the results. I ended up creating a cute pin up style for work.

Natural Hair: Flax Seed Gel Tutorial and Benefits

Hey Curlies,

As promised here is my fax seed gel tutorial. Flax seed gel is an all-natural alternative to traditional hair gel and is much cheaper as well. Only cost me $3!

Why Flax Seed Gel?
  • Only 13 cents to make
  • Great hold
  • All-natural (seriously)
  • Dries quickly
  • Easy to make
  • Rich in Omega-3
  • Doesn't flake
Traditional hair gels contain tons of alcohol and other harmful ingredients that cause dryness and breakage. While the texture of flax seed gel is a bit different, it still gets the job done!


Save your gel by storing it into a container with a lid into the fridge. This will keep your gel fresh for two to three weeks at a time.

Tips for creating your own
  • Be sure to not let the gel thicken up too much when making or it will be extremely hard to strain
  • You won't always gel all of the gel strained, that's OK
  • You can strain the seeds and gel using pantyhose or a tea strainer, the latter works best for me
  • Practice makes perfect
  • I purchased my seeds at Kroger in the organic/health food section
  • Tea strainers can be purchased at most grocery stores

Natural Hair: Wash-n-go Puff Using Flax Seed Gel

Hey Curlies,

I have been swamped with work these last couple of weeks. I work full time as a newspaper reporter so I'm constantly on the go. Anyway, my style for the last couple of weeks has been pretty boring lol. I've been washing my hair and wearing wash-n-go puffs.

My line sister bombed my photo lol.

I didn't really take any "hair" shots because like I said, I've been super busy but I will say my curls were VERY defined! I've been using flax seed gel as an alternative to regular gel and my hair loves it! I have a video for you all coming this weekend.

I achieved my wash-n-go puff by washing with Shea Moisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo, conditioning with TRESemme Naturals conditioner, spraying on ApHogee's leave in conditioner, applying an oil, then the flax seed gel.

Coming up next:
