All you girls with the beautiful curls... This one is for you.
I had strait hair for most of my life and then, when I was expecting my daughter, My hair went curly. The doctor said it was from a change in my hormones and not to worry because it would go back to normal.
Well, he lied.
I have spent the last 12 years figuring out how to deal with these waves. I am lucky enough to be able to try lots of good products. There are a few I love, but they all either smell bad or dry my hair out. As my hair is turning white (I am loving it by the way) it is getting even more curly.
I have been tinkering with making my own hair products and I think I have come up with a gel that makes my hair feel the way I want it to, keeps it healthy, AND makes my hair curly not frizzy. Yay!
Flax Spray Gel
1 T. flaxseeds
1 C. water
1 T. rose or orange water
1/2 t. vegetable glycerin
Soak the flaxseeds in the water for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the seeds out. Add the remaining ingredients to the liquid and pour into a spray bottle. Apply a small amount to clean damp hair and style. Store in the fridge.
*Last time I did this I used the orange hydrosol and added few drops of vanilla extract. It smelled like heaven and made me really happy all day long.
I always take my seeds and scatter them out in the orchard. They make the most delicate blue flowers.
