Do-it-yourself hair gel with linseed

Most of you probably only know hair gel as a finished product from the drugstore. The gel can also be produced easily and cheaply at home. A completely natural, quick alternative to the drugstore gels, which is suitable well for a nice look - no matter if you have curly or straight hair.

You need:

  • 10g linseed (you can get it for example in an organic food store)
  • 250 milliliters of water
  • ½ teaspoon of honey or agave syrup

You will also need a cooking pot, a close-meshed sieve (alternatively an unused stocking), a funnel and a jar for storage. In our Blog you can find some practical hairstyle options for cooking.


This is how the ingredients turn into gel:

  • Boil the linseed briefly in water and let them simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • When the mixture has the consistency of egg white it is ready.
  • Now carefully strain the linseed with the sieve or tights.
  • Add the honey or agave syrup to the liquid and stir it together.
  • Pour the finished mixture into a bottle or a jar.

Ideally, the gel is applied directly into damp hair after washing. This guarantees an optimal hold. A small drop is usually sufficient, which you spread on your palms, then massage it into your hair.

Without cooling, the gel stays durable for about a week, if you keep it in the refrigerator it will remain durable a few days longer. Therefore it's recommended to make only small quantities at once. In our blog you can find more recipes for selfmade and natural cosmetics for your beauty.
