How To Prepare Flaxseeds Gel?

Flaxseed gel requires only two ingredients: water and flaxseeds.


STEP 1: Add four cups of water to a pot.

STEP 2: Let it come to a boil. Once it comes to the boil, turn the flame to medium. The flame will remain in the medium throughout the process.

STEP 3: Now add half a cup of flaxseeds to the water. Stir the seeds so that they submerge in the water (none remains floating!).

STEP 4: Cover it for 5-7 min.

STEP 5: Open the lid after 5-7 min, stir, and check the consistency. You will see a gel-like product! Now, turn off the flame and let it cook in its heat for some time.

STEP 6: Take a separate container and strain the gel. Avoid using a plastic strainer, as it can melt. Let the gel cool down to room temperature. Now, keep the seeds back in the pot and let them cool.

STEP 7: Transfer the flaxseed gel to a glass container and store it in the refrigerator. It will thicken further as it cools.

Your flaxseed gel is ready for application! If you keep it in a glass bottle and refrigerate it, it will last a month. But at room temperature, it will not last more than one week.


Flaxseed gel application is simple. Generously coat your hair and scalp with the gel. You can use a shower cap to enhance the conditioning effect.

Leave it on for 20 - 25 minutes before washing it with shampoo. You can wash your hair with water, but it will take time.

This magical will remove all the deposition from your hair, and you will get lustrous, strong, and frizz-free hair!

How To Prepare Flaxseeds Cream?

We will use leftover seeds of flaxseed gel to prepare flaxseed cream.


STEP 1: Take seeds in a grinder and grind them well. In case your mixer grinder does not work well, add one cup of water.

STEP 2: Transfer the ground seeds to a vessel.

STEP 3: Use a muslin or cotton cloth to squeeze the cream from the seeds. (You might see some granules if you use a cotton cloth for extraction.)

STEP 4: Store the cream in a glass bottle and refrigerate. It can last easily for two weeks.

Your flaxseed cream is ready for application.


Massage the cream on your scalp and lengths. While applying, I'm sure you will realize that this cream is truly magical.

This cream is generously filled with tonics and nutrients and thus can be used weekly for lustrous and healthy hair.

Remember to perform a patch test before using flaxseed gel extensively to ensure it agrees with your hair type and skin.

Include flaxseeds in your haircare, and say goodbye to spending extra money on your hair.

Flaxseed gel and cream are enough to help you regain your lost hairline, regrow bald batches, and have denser and fuller hair for yourself.
