Hello beauties, I know its been a while. I’m really sorry. I’ve been super busy. Moved to a new state, searching for a new home in the new state, and recently my husband and I find out that I’m EXPECTING!!! Super excited about our new addition to our family.
Any-hoo, enough about that. Lets discuss what I’ve been up to with my hair. I recently received a free product to try. Flaxseed gel by “Auntie Jackie’s: copy/paste http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlproducts/view/10685/aunt-jackies-curls-coils-dont-shrink-flaxseed-elongating-curling-gel-15-oz
So, I figured I’d try it out!

It’s summer, and its a gel…so why not. Best time try a “non shrinkage gel.” Right? I picked to use this product purposely the day we where going to the dog park. I was going to be outside all day, in the sun on a 80 degree day with little humidity, why not. 🙂
I styled my hair the night before in twist on freshly washed hair, slightly damp. I applied coconut and vitamin e oil, then the gel. The gel I applied in the section I was about to twist.
- Product goes on nice.
- Not sticky
- Light smell of pineapples
- Doesn’t leave the hair super moist
- Left my hair soft, shiny, and bouncy
- Great curl defintion
- No crunch
- No flakes
I really must invest in a good quality camera. So I can record the amount of volume my hair had. “shake, shake”
- My hair shrink (LOL)
- Smell was a bit over powering after the day went by
Later that night I twist my hair in 6 big chunks, and clip it up in the attempt to stretch my hair a little. I didn’t comb my hair, only twist.
My hair stretched, it wasn’t too much of a hot day. Hair did shrink a bit. Photo above was the final look.
Overall, I like this product. My hair was never left hard, no flakiness, or crunch. The smell minimized the next day. I applied a bit of Jasmine oil as well. This gel would probably make hair look amazing on a lovely 60 degree day, with zero humidity.
I would absolutely use this product again.
