DIY - Homemade Organic Flax Seed Hair Gel

I realize my hair is always thirsty - sucking up and using up products like whoa. My hair is kinda thick but it is mostly really dry, so I find my hair product tab to be pretty expensive at the end of the month (especially if I am swimming!).

Product Review: As I Am Curling Jelly

My first encounter with the As I Am Curling Jelly was unintentional. I was at my local salon after getting my first weave out and since I was running out of time and money, I just wanted my hair styled in a simple wash n’ go with whatever curl defining product my stylist had on hand - I didn’t even care if it was full of sulfates and silicones, I needed to be at work in 45 minutes!
