For many people, crushed flaxseed is part of a healthy diet. But the small grains are also perfect for the hair. You can easily make a natural care product from them.In the context of a healthy diet, flaxseed is essential because, in addition to fiber, they also contain many B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids.
This turns the seeds into a powerhouse for the stomach and intestines, immune systems, and heart. But that’s not all! Flaxseed can also be a perfect care product for your hair.
With the small grains, a highly effective flaxseed gel can be produced that is a real treat to your hair, as the portal ‘Jolie.de’ reports.
It’s that easy for you to make the gel yourself.
That’s why flaxseed is so good for your hair.
The ingredients of flaxseed arean all-around care cure for damaged hair -but a healthy mane also benefits from it
First of all, flaxseed moisturizes a lot – this makes the hair fuller and is suitable for the cuticle, i.e., the dandruff layer surrounding the actual hair.
Omega-3 fatty acids strengthen the hair, improve elasticity and prevent the scalp drying out. And B vitamins are not only internally healthy for the body, but they also give the hair an incredible shine.
This is how flaxseed gel can be produced.
The preparation of flaxseed gel is not rocket science, and you can also be sure that you will end up with a natural product without synthetic additives.
For a care package – of course, this also depends on the hair length – you only need 30 grams of flaxseed and 250 milliliters of water.
The flaxseed is heated in a pot with water until everything boils. Then you can put the stove on a low flame and let the mixture simmer for about four minutes while constantly stirring. The mass should take on a dense, gelatin-like consistency.
Then press the whole thing, preferably with a spoon, through a fine sieve and let the drained gel cool completely.
It is odorless, but you can add a few drops of fragrance oil according to your preferences. In the refrigerator, the gel lasts one to two weeks.
Apply flaxseed gel correctly.
Flaxseed gel is an all-purpose weapon for every hair type. Whether curls or smooth, full, delicate, dry, or greasy hair, every hair and structure benefits from this nutrient pack.
With its slightly oily texture, the gel is kneaded directly into damp hair after washing. A little more gel is needed for dry hair than for normal hair.
Leave the gel on for a few minutes and then gently comb it out. Then let your hair dry completely. The gel will not be washed out, and the care effect will be visible and noticeable.
If you have caught too much gel, your hair will harden a little when drying. But that’s not a problem. First, you comb your hair carefully again and then massage a few drops of hair oil, or olive oil if necessary, evenly to the tips – this prevents further hardening.
When everything is evu comb carefully and thoroughly again – have fun with shiny, beautiful, and healthy hair.
