Does Flaxseed Gel Dry Out Your Hair?


Depending on the ratios used and how the flaxseed gel is made it can be drying to your hair. The good news is, it does not have to be!

Flaxseed Gel is the universe's little secret for those bomb curls and waves, but sometimes, it acts like that friend who promises not to spill your secrets and then... does. Yes, I'm talking about the dreaded dry-out. But don't you worry, because I've got the scoop on how to keep your hair feeling like it's living its best life, hydrated and happy with flaxseed gel. Here’s how you can have the best results:

First, consider adding other ingredients to your Flaxseed Gel mix.

To prevent dryness in a strong hold flaxseed gel mix try adding to your formula. For our Flaxseed Gel that we offer we added vegetable glycerin and honey for softer shinier hair, so you don’t have to worry about your hair lacking moisture whatsoever.

Next, let's talk hydration.

Before you even think about applying that gel, make sure your hair is properly moisturized. Think of it like priming a wall before you paint it. A leave-in conditioner or a good ol' water spritz can be your BFF here. It creates a nice, moisturized base for the flaxseed gel to cling onto, rather than it sucking the life out of your strands.

Try lightly applying an oil of your choice.

When you're applying it, mix it with a few drops of your favorite oil – we're talking argan, coconut, or even olive oil if you're in a pinch. This is like mixing a little bit of sunshine with your gel. It not only helps in locking the moisture but also adds an extra layer of protection against the dryness. And who doesn't love a bit of extra shine?

Lastly, don't go overboard with the gel.

It's tempting, I know, to slather on loads, hoping for that perfect hold. But sometimes, less is more. Use just enough to coat your strands and define those curls or waves. After your hair dries, if you feel like it's a bit stiff or dry, scrunch in a tiny bit of oil to soften it up. It's like giving your hair a little pep talk, telling it to relax and let its true beauty shine.

So there you have it, my fabulous friend. With these little tricks up your sleeve, you'll keep your hair looking like it just stepped out of a hydration spa, all while rocking that flaxseed gel. Go out there and show off those luscious locks!
