#1 DIY Flaxseed Gel For Hair Growth
Great source of vitamin e: Vitamin E contributes to hair growth due to its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, which prevent hair and scalp damage. It can also help stop premature graying brought on by oxidative stress.
Rich in B vitamins: Flax seeds are rich in vitamin B12, biotin, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, and folic acid. Consuming flax seeds can help refill the low B vitamin levels, strengthen your hair, and encourage hair development.
Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which are abundant in flax seeds, assist reduce inflammation in the body and may therefore lessen hair loss and hair thinning.
Replete with protein: Protein is necessary for the growth of hair. Flax seeds are a gluten-free, vegan source of protein. Flax seed consumption makes it simple to consume the appropriate amount of protein each day, strengthening the hair in the process.
Balance pH levels and oil production: Flax seeds may help regulate the pH levels and oil production of the scalp. Your hair’s health and growth rate are directly impacted by these elements. In addition, flax seeds calm the sebaceous glands and soothe the scalp, allowing them to create the ideal quantity of oil for strong hair development.
How to make:
- 1/3 cup flax seeds
- 2 cups of water
- 1/4 cup pure aloe vera gel (optional)
- 1 tbsp collagen peptides (optional)
- 15-30 drops of oil (optional)
- 1/2 tsp magnesium sulfate (optional)
- Essential oils for scent (optional)
- Bring the flaxseeds and water to a boil over medium heat.
- Boil them for 6 minutes and stir occasionally to keep the flax seeds from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan.
- Remove the water from the heat once it has that mucilaginous, slimy texture.
- Stir it in just before it cools to avoid clumps.
- Pour the contents of the saucepan into a large measuring cup that has been lined with cheesecloth.
- Squeeze the flaxseeds to strain the gel into the container, then raise the cheesecloth.
- Mix thoroughly after adding any additions.
- Pour into the container and store it in the fridge.
- Refrigerate for up to two weeks, or longer if a preservative was employed.
#2 Okra Gel For Frizzy Hair
Vitamins A, C, E, K, and B complex are abundant in okra.
Okra is full of minerals such as Zinc, Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium.
Okra gel’s high concentration of amino acids provides our hair with a natural protein treatment that also heals damage.
Thus, Okra gel gives our dry, dull, lifeless, damaged hair a makeover and makes them healthy, shiny, bouncy, and well-nourished. It also cares for our scalp and soothes issues like hair loss, dandruff, an itchy scalp, etc.
How to make
- 6 -7 pieces of Okra
- 1 cup of water
- Olive oil
- Lavender ( optional)
- Take a couple of okra pieces. Depending on the thickness/length of your hair, five to seven pieces should be sufficient. Cut each one in half horizontally.
- Pour about eight ounces of water into a pot and toss in the okra.
- Bring the water to a boil and let it simmer on low heat. The mixture will start to take on a gooey, sticky gel texture. Turn off the heat once it reaches that consistency.
- Add a few drops of lavender to cover it up (optional) because Okra’s smell can occasionally send people away.
- Let your mixture cool for a few minutes. Put it through a tea strainer after it has cooled.
- Use it! Wash your hair as usual with shampoo. Before using the okra gel, really wring out all the extra water from your hair.
