Homemade Hair Mousse, Gel or Setting Lotion Recipe

by Linda

Does anyone have any ideas for making a hair mousse or setting gel to replace the store bought ones. I have fairly fine hair and without lots of "product" it just sits flat and limp.

Aloe Vera? NEW
by: Austin

Would aloe vera work? Also, I've added essential oils to shampoo before, and the shampoo broke down & turned into a liquid, does this happen with aloe vera or flaxseed?

A Natural Hair Gel NEW
by: Wanda

You can make a natural hair gel using flax seeds! There are many receipes for it on I have tried it and it really works! I add essemtial oils to mine (once it cools down a bit but before it "sets"). You will have to experiment to get a consistency you like but just to let you know, it is on the thick side, and a little goes a looong way! I use my fingers to apply it, but you can thin it down to use in a spray bottle. Again, experimentation is key here. Use less for a light hold, more for a firm hold. Flaxseed hair gel can be used on any hair type or color as it is clear (unless you choose to add coloring).
