DIY flaxseed hair gel to style your hair without damaging it

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Have you been struggling to keep those baby hair strands from popping out? Using a hair spray may help, but try this DIY flaxseed hair gel instead.

Have you been struggling to keep your baby hair strands from popping out? Pulling out the bottle of a snazzy hair spray and a spoolie brush may help a great deal but it may weaken those newly grown babies we were so eager to see. Most hair sprays and mousse are loaded with chemicals like plasticizers, luster agents, and fragrances, which may cause build-up on hair and eventually result in hair breakage. Keeping in mind these pretty scary after-effects of market-bought hair sprays, I decided to go the natural route. Running through the substitute for hair sprays and gels, I stumbled across a DIY flaxseed hair gel on the internet.

Having all the 4 ingredients needed to prepare this gel sitting in my kitchen pantry, made me feel like I can finally conquer the world!

Here’s why flaxseed works wonders when it comes to hair health:

  1. It helps to seal the cuticle and reduces frizz.
  2. Flaxseeds contain omega-3 fatty acid, which is also found in fish, but it is present in a different form called alpha-linolenic acid in the flaxseed. This form is believed to reduce inflammation on the scalp and can affect hair growth.  
  3. Flaxseeds also have B vitamins which are known to strengthen your hair follicle and help with faster hair growth. 
  4. In addition, flaxseeds also contain vitamin E which reduces the effect of free radicals on your scalp, helping with faster hair growth.
