i’ve been asked A LOT about taming curly hair and frizz while being no-’poo and i’ve always offered the “don’t use heat and use coconut oil like your life depends on it” advice.
well curly girls, i’ve done my research and found these NATURAL ways to make gel/mousse to tame those curly locks (see, i really do care and think about you guys! lol).
so here goes:
- 1/2 to 1 tsp unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup warm, distilled water
- 1-2 drops of essential oils (your choice)
mix and dissolve the gelatin into the water. use as you would a normal store gel, but keep it in the FRIDGE!
- 1 cup distilled water
- 2 tbsp flax seed
- 1-2 drops of essential oil (whatever you like)
mix together water and seeds in a small pot. bring them to a boil and remove from heat. let it sit and “marinade” for about a half hour. strain out seeds.
when it’s cooled off, add the oil and mix, mix, mix! you can place this in a jar and use as you would regular store gel. make sure to keep it tightly sealed!!!
please try these and let me know what you think!!! woohoo!
