10 Best Tips For Applying Flaxseed Gel
What's the good in having the best flaxseed hair gel if you don't know how to apply it?
Quick question before we start:
Can I use Flaxseed Gel on Locs?
Yes! You can definitely show your locs some love with flaxseed gel.
Tips For Applying Flaxseed Gel on Natural Hair
1. Only use on Freshly-Cleansed and Conditioned Curls
Clean hair achieves the best style. If you have other product on your hair, the gel cannot penetrate your hair properly. Instead, it will just sit on top of the hair.
2. Apply Flaxseed Gel on Wet Curls Only.
Water activates the gel and enhances your curl.
If you do not use it on saturated hair, the product will not spread as much as it can and your curls won’t be as defined.
3. Finger-detangling (or Shingling) is the Best Way to Apply Flaxseed Gel.
For kinky and/or curly textures, finger detangling or shingling allows the hair to clump, giving you a more defined Wash + Go.
Brushes and combs are great for detangling, prior to applying the gel. Yet, they aren't the best for defining the curl with gel in the hair.
They usually succeed only in defining the ends of the hair instead of the strand from root to tip.
4. Work Section by Section.
If you have finer hair, you can work in larger sections.
5. Don’t Manipulate Your Curls after You’ve Applied Flaxseed Gel in a Section.
Wait until it is dry before styling again. Any manipulation while wet will disturb your curl pattern and hurt your results.
The gel helps fight frizz; friction helps add frizz. Leave those luscious curls alone!
6. To Preserve Your Curls, Wear a Bonnet at Night.
Once the gel dries completely, place a bonnet over your curls for the night. Fluff it in the morning and viola!
7. Use Flaxseed Gel Sparingly.
Our Pure Flaxseed Gel is a high-end gel and you want to get more than two styling sessions out of the bottle. So don't go overboard.
The gel dries clearer with minimal product. As a result, you should avoid leaving excess product in sections.
Use a towel to scrunch any sections that have white clumps of gel while it is still wet.
8. As long as you don’t pair this gel with other products, it should not flake.
Our Pure Flaxseed Gel has Marshmallow Root Extract and Glycerin, two ingredients that eliminate flaking.
This results in moisturized and defined curls, but it's important that you're not pairing it with any other product.
Use the gel by itself, unless you're pairing it with the Pure Avocado Moisturizer!
9. You’ll have a slight crisp to your hair.
Your hair will be most defined on the first day, but it will also have a slight crisp to it.
It is a gel after all...but it will not be hard or crunchy.
The light crisp will disappear the next day and it will be completely soft all around!
10. Disclaimer: No chemical-free product will GIVE you a curl pattern that you don’t already have.
This means our gel won’t make your curls tighter or looser. Instead, it will give hold to your natural curl pattern.
If you currently do not have curly hair when wet, this gel will not make your hair curly.
If you have heat damage, this gel won’t reverse the damage. In fact, most hair products won't.
It will only enhance your natural curl pattern.
