I made my own Flaxseed gel the other day and I must say that I love this slimy stuff. The texture threw me for a loop initially, but I gave it a shot and I am sold. I have to give a shout out to Naptural85 for her recipe and video. I don't think I could have done it without her step by step tutorial. I used it to do a Bantu Knot-Out and it turned out even better than when I used Royal Crown. It just feels healthier. I am officially off the Royal Crown bandwagon, not just because I think the Flaxseed Gel is better, but also because over time, using the Royal Crown made my hair feel drier than normal. Now, I know it's winter and my hair is typically drier at this time of year, but it just wasn't feeling right.
As for application, it felt kind of odd going on and I had a learning curve when applying it the first couple of times, but I think I got the hang of determining how much I need per section of hair. I will keep this in rotation throughout the winter, heck, maybe even throughout the year!
