Flax Seed Gel (FSG)

Hey yall,
So Saturday night I made flax see gel and I had plans on wearing my hair out this week. It has been pretty warm here but as usual the weather changed and it has been a bit chilly. So I co-washed this morning and decided to shingle my hair in the same four sections I had co-washed in. I used my denmen brush to smooth the FSG through my hair and also raked it with my fingers. I have used the gel for twist outs but this was my first shingle. I must admit at first I thought that it wouldn't be enough hold but as my hair dried the hold got a bit harder. I am planning to wear my hair like this until my next wash day next week.
P.S. Have any of you tried FSG before? How did you like it? Please comment below :)

  1. Hi! I am a new follower (found you via Braid with Me/Beads Braids and Beyond). Love your shop and will patron soon! I am transitioning (around 5 months) and just started learning about natural hair and what I've been doing (WAY WRONG) with my 4.5 year olds hair! Oye. Anywhoo, we just made a shea butter mix for the first time last night and will be trying the flax gel next. I've heard lots of good things about it and her 3c/4a hair hardly holds - I've tried Oyin pomade, Fantasia IC gel, olive oil gel - no dice! So, I've got my fingers crossed on this. Thanks for sharing, I like your blog!
