Flax Seed Hair Gel

I've been looking for a more natural hair gel to use since lately I've been styling my hair in a low pony or a bun for my Zumba classes
Low pony


I've seen some youtube videos on homemade flax seed hair gel. After watching Naptural85's Do It Yourself: Homemade Natural Hair Gel with Flaxseeds video, I think I will try to mix up a batch myself.  I found a recipe online at fromnaturewithlove.com that I'd like to use. 

Flax Seed Hair Gel Recipe 

2 Tbsp Whole Flax Seeds
1 cup water
Pure Aloe Vera Gel, if desired
Few drops of essential oil for scent

Instructions: Bring water to a boil. Stir the seeds into the water and reduce heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until a gel-like lotion is formed. Strain through a fine strainer or cheesecloth into a small bottle. Add essential oils and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. If desired, you can add some pure aloe vera gel for its moisturizing properties. Fill the bottle with flax seed gel until bottle is about 3/4 full, then fill to the top with pure aloe vera gel. Gel will not flake or make the hair hard or crunchy. Safe to use everyday.
