    Can anyone give me a good recipe for a homemade pomade or gel that I will be able to use when I am retwisting my locs? I've been going to the store to purchase different products, but I want to be able to make my own stuff to use in my hair. Any help will be appreciated!

    Go to the Locs forum and see what they have to say. When I had locs I latched instead of twisted, but I remember some people having good luck with flaxseed gel...?
    It's 2020...do you know where you're going to?

    Hey Mcbeam,


    I use this one on my hair...it's flaxseed gel....you can get the seeds from the bulk store...buy the whole seeds, not ground seeds....it conditions the hair very well....also when you are done straining it will be very stringy...don't worry as it cools it gets thicker...i usually double the recipe below and it lasts me about 10 days....Very cheap alternative....


    [b]Flax Seed Hair Gel Recipe


    Summary:

    A natural hair gel

    Ingredients:

    2 Tbsp Whole Flax Seeds
    1 cup water
    Pure Aloe Vera Gel, if desired
    Few drops of essential oil for scent

    Instructions:

    Bring water to a boil. Stir the seeds into the water and reduce heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until a gel-like lotion is formed. Strain through a metal cooking strainer or cheesecloth into a small bottle. Add essential oils and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. If desired, you can add some pure aloe vera gel for its moisturizing properties. Fill the bottle with flax seed gel until bottle is about 3/4 full, then fill to the top with pure aloe vera gel. Gel will not flake or make the hair hard or crunchy. Safe to use everyday.
