Before I begin: this is my first instructable so if you see anything I could improve don't hesitate on commenting, also english is my second language, if you see anything written in "weird" english please tell me about it so I can fix it.
About a month ago or so I was feeling lazy to go cut my hair and since my hair cutting machine died after a horrible fall I haven't been able to do it myself. What do we do? the alternative to avoid a light bulb like head for people like me who have thick straight hair which doesn't naturally fall even when it's 1" long it's hair gel.
But I really don't want to use the industrial product, it has many things I don't want to put on my head beginning with alcohol which combined with a really hot environment with a lot of sun (I live in a very hot and sunny area) will surely dry my scalp, sure there are gentler products but these have become prohibitively expensive where I live, besides, this is instructables and it's all about making, not buying.
So I asked my mother if she knew how to make hair gel and she gave me this recipe. I'm sure some of you have seen it or heard about it but still here it is for those who haven't.
Why use it?
-Very easy to make
-Gives good results
Step 1: Gather materials
For this you'll need
-1 cup of water (~236ml)
-2 tbsp of linseed (also called flaxseed)
-A small pot (mine's not so small but it was what I had)
-A strainer (one that can be used with hot liquids, I used an old one used for these kind of things)
-1 small container to put the final product
