2 Must Try Hair Recipes Healthy Hair Gel:
Ingredients for home hair gel
Unflavoured Gelatin - ½ to 1 teaspoon
Hot and Distilled Water - 1 cup
Essential oils (optional)

You can add more or less gelatine according to your needs. Less gelatin means less "restraint". Do not forget to use the less tight gel for frizzy hair.

Flax seed recipe:
Whole flax seeds - 2 tablespoons
Water - 1 cup
Aloevera gel (optional)
Essential oils (optional)
Start by boiling the water.
Now add the whole flax seeds and continue stirring continuously.

Once the solution begins to resemble frost, remove it immediately from heat and pass it through a fine sieve.
After cooling, pour it into a small pressure bottle or pump.
Add aloevera gel, no more than ¼ of the amount of flax seed gel. This reduces the gel and also imparts moisturizing properties.

Done regularly for a month will leave you hair straighter, brighter and smoother.
