I found this recipe on the internet for hair gel but it has many more uses. It is a great as a moisturizer, especially for your feet and hands, really good as an aftersun and if you add water it is a good hairspray which you can just brush out.

Flaxseeds or linseeds are they sometimes called contain omega 3 fatty acids.

Recipe

1/4 flaxseeds

2 cups distilled water

Bring to the boil, stir now and then, should start to thicken around 5 mins.

Strain into a glass jar when cool.

Add a few drops of tea tree oil or oil of your choice.

will keep in fridge for a month.

Going Natural

About 3 months ago I had a mole type lump on my head, turned out it was non cancerous and was treated by freezing, but it made me think about all the products you put on your hair, like shampoo, conditioner, gel, hair dye.

So I decided to try not using any of these products.

To wash my hair I use 1tsp bicarb to 1 cup water.

To condition I use 1tbsp vinegar to 1 cup water.

To replace my gel I use aloe vera gel.

I use 1tbsp dried sage soaked in boiling water for to dye my hair, I am naturally brown. Put this on most days and just let it dry naturally.

well 3 months later I am pleased with results, I have very fine hair and to start with it was very soft now using the aloe vera has helped to give it some body.

I use the sage to try to help with the grey, sometimes I think it is working, hard to telI as I don’t have much grey.
