Flaxseed Gel works wonders on 4C hair and really any hair type. On its own 4C Hair is beautiful, but if you want the look of defined curls it is possible with Flaxseed Gel.
Flaxseed Gel is an all-natural, all purpose styler that can be used on curly, coily, straight/pressed hair or even locs for re-twisting. It is made by boiling flaxseeds in water. Once the Flaxseeds are boiled a gel is released from the seeds.
Flaxseed Gel contains a host of wonderful nutrients for hair like:
- Vitamin B
- Vitamin E
In addition to it being a great styler, Flaxseed Gel can be used as an aid in your healthy hair growth journey.
Using Flaxseed Gel some of the styles you can create are:
- Wash and go’s
- Twist outs
- Braid outs
- Coil outs
- Finger coils
- Roller Sets
- Bantu knot outs
- Sleek ponytails
- Sleek buns
And yes, all of these can be done on 4C Hair with defined results.

Be aware of fake Flaxseed Gel
@reclaimyourcrown unfortunately on a wide scale Flaxseed Gel is not available in stores. #flaxseedgel ♬ original sound – reclaimyourcrown
Unfortunately on a wide scale at least, Flaxseed Gel is not available in stores. Look closely at the ingredients list of popular brands. They are usually using a Flaxseed protein powder or a Flaxseed Oil, not real Flaxseed Gel.
This is because making Flaxseed Gel is a very laborious process and major corporations do not want to invest the time in making real Flaxseed Gel if they can just pop an extract, powder or oil in the product.
In order to enjoy the benefits and style Flaxseed Gel offers you have to either make it yourself or purchase flaxseed gel online.
Flaxseed Gel Recipe
Make sure to store your flaxseed gel in your fridge and discard after 1 week. Being that your gel does not have a preservative and is made with water it will grow mold and bacteria if it is not stored in your fridge.
Where You Can Buy Flaxseed Gel (the real stuff)
Reclaim Your Crown goes through the process of actually boiling the flaxseeds to release the gel and formulates it into a product that is shelf stable so that you do not have to worry about storing it in a fridge. Enjoy healthier and more defined stylish hair with the Curl Elixir Flaxseed Gel.
