Here’s how to make flax seeds hair gel at home for stronger, longer hair.


Rich in omega-3 fatty acids:

Flax seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids. This polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) helps lower inflammation in the body, which can help reduce hair loss and hair weakness.

 Replete with protein:

Protein is essential for hair growth. Flax seeds are a vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free source of protein. Consuming flax seeds help reach the recommended daily protein intake easily, and this helps in strengthening the hair.

 Rich source of vitamin E:

Vitamin E contributes to hair growth because of its strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which prevent hair and scalp damage. Vitamin E can also help prevent premature graying due to oxidative stress.

 Loaded with B vitamins:

Deficiency in B vitamins (riboflavin, folate, biotin, and vitamin B12) is associated with hair loss. Flax seeds are rich in vitamin B12, biotin, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, and folic acid.

How to use it?

 Apply it as a hair mask or conditioner regularly for better results.

Track your hair growth before and after using flaxseed gel to see the difference yourself!
