Where to Find Pure Flaxseed Gel for Hair


Pure flaxseed gel for hair is hard to come by and virtually nowhere to be found in stores. There are a few products on the market that claim to be flaxseed gel but upon closer examination they are likely to just have a speck of flaxseed gel in them or none at all.

What is real Flaxseed Gel?

Flaxseed Gel is made by boiling flaxseeds in water until they release an all-natural gel. The gel is then strained to separate the seeds from the gel. It has a yellow to brownish tint to depending on the type of flaxseeds used.

Most Major Brands are Using Flaxseed Oil or Flaxseed Protein Powder

While there's nothing wrong with using Flaxseed Oil or the protein powder it is not the same as using the actual gel that is released from boiling the flaxseeds. The gel that is produced is a curl definer that tames frizz and has a whole bunch of great nutrients for your hair like Omega-3, Vitamin B, and protein.

The first 5 ingredients is what the product has the most abundance of.

If you take a look at products like Aunt Jackie's Flaxseed Gel or Eco Styler Flaxseed Gel you will find that flaxseed gel or flaxseeds is listed pretty low on their ingredients list. Which means it mostly contains a whole bunch of other random stuff and is not what you are really looking for. 

Here goes Aunt Jackie's first 5 ingredients:

  • Water
  • Glycerin
  • Carbomer
  • Aminomethyl Propanol
  • Phenoxyethano

Yuck! Flaxseeds are not listed anywhere. Now let's take a look at Eco Styler's "Flaxseed Gel".

Here goes Eco Styler's first 5 ingredients:

  • Water
  • Triethanolamine
  • Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil
  • Linum usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil
  • Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
