Flaxseeds are rich in a number of nutrients that may help in keeping the hair healthy and the scalp hydrated. What’s more? Flaxseed hair mask is easy to make and gives you results comparable to a hair spa treatment in salons, given that you generally take care of your hair and follow diet and beauty regimen that is healthy for your hair type. This is why flaxseeds are found in a number of hair creams that you can buy from stores as well. These  seeds are nutty in taste and if you are planning on eating the seeds, you would need to remove the outer shell.


2 cups of water

3 to 4 tablespoons of flaxseeds

Vitamin E oil (2 to 3 drops) (optional)

Essential oils or coconut oil (optional)


Put the water and the flaxseeds in a small pot and bring them to a slow boil. To prevent the seeds from sticking to the bottom of the pot, make sure to stir the mixture regularly.

After boiling it for 10 minutes, check the consistency. You’ll notice the mixture beginning to thicken into a soft, gel-like substance. You may also notice some foam forming at the top of gel  (this is normal). Make sure that the mixture is not too watery or thin.

Turn off the heat and let it cool for about half an hour. The longer you let it sit, the thicker the consistency will be.

Once it’s cool enough and you have the desired consistency, grab your jar and prepare your strainer. If you find that the mixture is too thick to filter, gradually add water and mix it in until it’s more manageable.

Filter your mixture through the strainer and into your glass jar or container. You can use your hands to squeeze the gel out and separate it from the seeds. Keep in mind that you won’t get it all out on the first try—it’ll definitely take multiple attempts.

This step is optional, but after you’ve separated the seeds from the gel, feel free to mix in some drop of coconut oil and vitamin E oil (2 to 3 drops)for extra moisture and benefits.

After thoroughly mixing in your added ingredients, feel free to start using your gel right away. To store, simply cover your container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2  weeks.
