➰ AT HOME FLAXSEED GEL! ➰ So it’s only taken me nearly two years to find this out but you can actually book your own flaxseeds and make your own gel!! I’ve been getting through a bottle of UG curl jelly every 3-4 weeks at £7 a bottle, ridiculous! These were £1.10 and I’d probably get 5 batches to last 1-2 weeks... mycurlsandme x . . . . . . #ukcurlygirl #curlygirlmethod #diyflaxseedgel #flaxseedgel #homemadeflaxseedgel #cgmethod #ukcgmethod #lorrainemassey #diffusing #pixiediffusing #mycurls #curlyhair #wavyhair #hairgel #naturalhair #curlycommunity

➰IM BACK!!! ➰ So a couple of months have passed and tonight I come back with a spring! I’ve unicorn cut my hair for the first time since July (back picture to follow) I then rice water treated, garnier papaya deep treat and the moussed and used some flaxseed gel I made for the first time today, diffused for HOURS (literally) and voila! Quite fluffy so I’m going to refresh with gel in the morning... mycurlsandme x . . . . . . #ukcurlygirl #curlygirlmethod #diyflaxseedgel #flaxseedgel #homemadeflaxseedgel #cgmethod #ukcgmethod #lorrainemassey

||LOCS WASH DAY ROUTINE WITH HERBAL TEA RINSE|| Watch the above video and Tag a friend who needs to see this. Follow @aqplusventures for more. Always prepare the tea rinse in advance and allow to cool before starting your washday. ________ Reposted from @candyloveslocs 6 months today!! Half a year on this #locjourney down 😄 Celebrated with an herbal rinse. I've been using the herbal water I posted about in my daily spray for a week now (few posts back) and my babies have been super soft and moisturized. Dry indoor heat plus the cold weather has been drying them out so I figured I'd try the rinse since it was wash day anyway and maaaaan! Saturating them vs a quick mist has them feeling SO goooood! I'll be adding this to the routine biweekly while its cold out. Not only were the results great, the process was very soothing with aromatherapy benefits. Something I very much needed. Last official retwist was at the end of November, done 3 so far, and I'm thinking about doing one again soon. I don't care about neat parts or anything but the roots could use a little attention...maybe lol 😅 ________ One of the best things about this journey is the realization that #loc#locs are possible with minimal guidance and products. Even when it seems like nothing is happening, having patience and doing what's best for YOUR hair WILL eventually pay off. My routine is very simple. Wash every 3-5 days with my favorite #dollylocks Nag Champa shampoo, separate after washing and palmroll as needed (mainly the front & not with every wash), spray daily with water (or herbal water)/distilled rose water/fresh aloe/jojoba oil. When I've retwisted I've palmrolled with a #diyflaxseedgel I posted near the beginning of the journey. Cover at night and keep styling to a minimum. That's it. _________ #sta#starterlocs #locs #6monthslocd #locfamily #embracethefrizz #hairantenna #thankthecreator #semifreeform #semifreeformlocs #blackgirlmagic #babylocs #goddesslocs #herbaltearinse #backtoyourroots #newlocs #curlylocs #locgoddess #twostrandstarterlocs #starterlocs #protectivestyle #messylocs #locupdate #naturalhaircommunity #teenagelocs #longnaturalhair #aqplusventures #hairtearinse

🖤 Flax seed gel 🖤⁣ ⁣ Made my first batch of flax seed gel! It was pretty easy and I can’t wait to try it!⁣ ⁣ You’ll need:⁣ ✨ strainer⁣ ✨ whole flax seeds ⁣(I found them next to the flour and in the baking section) ✨ water⁣ ✨ pan⁣ ✨ essential oils (optional)⁣ ✨ air tight container ⁣ Directions:⁣ 1. Pour 2 cups water into pan⁣ 2. Pour 1/4 cup flax seeds into water⁣ 3. Set to medium high and let boil. Mix frequently so seeds don’t stick to the pan. ⁣ 4. Once boiling, turn heat to medium high and let cook until it reaches a goopy consistency (sorry for lack of better description). ⁣The whole process took me about 15 minutes. 5. Add drops of essential oils to your air tight container ( I used grapefruit and rosemary)⁣ 5. Pour flax seed mix into strainer over container and let strain, I used a spoon to help the process. ⁣ 6. Store in the fridge until ready to use. Clean all your utensils immediately. ⁣ ⁣ Super cost efficient and easy! Based on my research, it should keep in the fridge for 2 weeks. I’ll update after trying. ⁣ ⁣⁣ #fla#flaxseed/a> #cur#curlygirlod #curlygirl #cur#curls #cgmethod #CGM #naturalcurls #naturallycurly #cur#curlyhaircommunity #embraceyourcurls #loveyourcurls #curlynaturalhair #curlyhair #curls #curlgoals #thecurlygirlmethod #flaxseed #diyflaxseedgel #diygel #diyhairgel

BEFORE & AFTER • BIG CHOP • Here are the #beforeandafterhair photos from my #bigchop earlier this week! I loved my #longcurls , but felt like a change and I also wanted to experiment with definition and volume 😆 My hair colour is exactly the same (good comparison of how lighting can change the appearance of hair in photos!). My before photo was styled simply with my #diyflaxseedgel and my after photo was styled with the new @clever_curl creme and foam! #curlyhair #curlygirl #curlyhairjourney #curlygirlmethod #naturalcurls #hairtransformation #naturallycurly #curlyhaircommunity #curlsrock #lovecurls #curlyhairgoals #curlyhairstyle #curlcommunity #curlgoals #curlysisterhood #curlytexture #curlygirlsaustralia #curlygirlaustralia #curlynatural #curlon #cur#curlynaturalhair #curlyhairstyles #curlyhairday #curlycommunity #curlynaturalhair #embraceyourcurls #healthycurls

Hi what's up guys! Ugh me I've been busy with my thesis and stuff irl so I'm not really on ig right now! :( I'm also still waiting for the products I bought from Amazon to arrive (it takes forever to get to the other side of the world y'all...) I can't wait to try them and actually improve my hair! However nowadays I still do my routine (ofcourse, there's no such thing as going back!) As in washing and styling with leave-in and fsg only... And recently, I like getting creative with scarf and bun its so fun! The weather is getting hotter and more humid here I can't wait for holiday in Europe this Christmas!!! Hope y'all my curly friends are doing good...

Used #flaxseedgel for the first time in a month today. I’m happy to see I get decent results using the #dampstyling method & flaxseed gel. Loving the consistency with this #stylingmethod Washday details #preepoo with #coconutoil #lowpoo with @gio@giovannihaircare root 66 #squishedin #beerinse #squishedtocondish @naturesquest conditioner Rinsed completely out. Leave in @giovannihaircare weightless moisture combed/brushed through with the @denmanbrush Then plopped for about 5 minutes to remove excess moisture then #emulsified my #diyflaxseedgel & #scrunchscrunchscrunch it in #diffusedhair with @dysonhair dryer #scrunchedoutthecrunch with @righteousrootsoils Wow, when you list it like that it seems like a lot of work but it honestly didn’t feel like it was #hairvariety #curlywavyhair #fadedmanicpanic #wavyhairstyle #flippedpart #curlygirlsaustralia #wavyhairrocks #curlsoncurls
