DIY Flax Seed Aloe Vera Gel For Beautiful Hair And Smooth Glowing Skin – This gel moisturiser is suitable for all skin types. It is much lighter to provide a strong hold on curly hair.
An amazing gel that tightens pores to make your skin appear smoother and the herbs work to treat and lighten acne, acne scars and other blemishes.
Rubbing the ice cubes worked well for my skin and it stays fresh for a longer period of time too.
It can be used with the Yao Rice Water Recipe And Shikakai Shampoo.
How To Use Aloe Vera Treatment Gel?
It is really important to know how to use it as i have heard others complain about flaking and the gel peeling off the skin.
Take little bit of the gel on your finger tips.
Massage the gel on your skin until it is fully absorbed. This is important to avoid the gel from peeling off/flaking.
Once it is fully absorbed, proceed with the rest of your skin care routine.
Do not rub instead, pat the products in.
If it still flakes which it won’t, apply two drops of oil on your palm and rub the palm together. Pat over the gel to lock it in. DO NOT USE MORE OIL.
My Results – Normal sensitive skin
It moisturises and protects your skin all day long. I do not even feel the need to moisturise again. It does not make my skin stretchy or tight. The gel makes your skin look flawless as it does tighten the pores.
The results may vary depending on the skin type though. You certainly need a deep moisturiser for dry skin as this by itself may not be enough.
For Hair – Apply On Dry Hair Only
Take a small bit and comb through the hair with your fingers.
Again take a comb and use it to spread the gel all over your hair.
Do not apply the flax seed aloe vera gel and leave it like that unless you are using it as a styling gel to hold your hair.
Applying too much of the gel will definitely cause flaking which may look like dandruff. So take a small amount each time and work with it.
Results – Normal scalp
It does leave my hair super soft and frizz free. The Aloe Vera flax seed gel helps soothe the scalp and promotes hair growth. It does tame fly away hair and makes your hair less messy.
It nourishes the scalp and helps strengthen the hair strands while also, preventing scalp infections. This gel treats mild dandruff and hair loss.
Overall, it is one of the best natural leave on hair gel that i have come across.
How To Make Aloe Vera Gel

This is to remove the latex from the leaf. The latex could be allergic to many.

Next, How To Make Flax Seed Gel?
We need 1/4 cup of flax seeds to make this gel. You can use any good brand of flax seed to make this.
Transfer it to a strainer along with neem leaves.
Alternatives – You can use herbs like Holy basil, Rosemary, Sage or even Green tea and Fenugreek seeds
Use a big strainer instead of a tea strainer as, the holes of the net would be too small for the gel to pass through.
Take around 480 ml of water on a vessel and switch on the flame. Once the water boils, bring down the flame to medium.
Keep stirring the flax seeds.
After five minutes, you can see that the colour and consistency of the water starts to change.
Once it reaches a string consistency as shown above, switch off the flame.
As the gel cools down, it will thicken further.
Do not discard the flax seeds. Freeze it. These seeds can be used again to make another batch of flax seed gel.
After the gel has cooled down for 15 minutes, add the Aloe Vera juice that we made earlier.
Whisk until it is blended together.
