    To those that asked,

    My flax seed gel recipe is really easy. Overall, I just figured out that I needed a thinner preparation than a lot of those seen on youtube.

    You'll need a small saucepot, a small metal strainer, and maybe a knee high. The sizes should be such that when you put 3 cups of water in the pot, the strainer bottom is in the water.

    Add 1/4 cup flax seeds. Bring water to gentle boil. As it boils, gently move the strainer up and down so that the...snot?....moves away from the seeds and into the water. Do so for about 20 minutes. You'll find that your mix at this point looks like not-quite-set-jello. It may seem very watery at this point....and that's good enough for my hair!

    Some people then put the seeds in a knee high or something and then squeeze the seeds to get the super thick mucilage off of the seeds. I did that too during my experiments, but I'm considering dropping this step. It's a lot of work and I don't really even need super thick gel.

    Finally, add some vitamin E oil. If you're going to use it a lot, store in bathroom. If only occasionally, store in fridge for 3 weeks or make less. Makes 16oz total.

    Was being completely vain and videotaped me using my new blow dryer. I was scrolling through the movie (go iphone!) when I realized I had the first decent picture of my hair at my current length this year!



    BCL stretched, about BSL curly.

    (One day I'll have a length-shot-picture-taker. Until then, please bare with my selfies. )
