● 1 tablespoon of flax seeds
● 1 liter (32 ounces) of water
● The juice of one lemon
First you need to bring the water to boil and when it starts you need to add the flaxseed. Leave it until it starts boiling again and wait for a couple of minutes until the water starts thickening. Remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool. After it’s cooled off strain the seeds and add 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon and mix it all well.
Wash your hair as you normally do, with shampoo and conditioner. When you’ve washed it instead of applying any other hair care product take a small amount of the flax seed water and comb it through your hair, from the roots to the tips. Make sure you massage the scalp as well. When your hair dries out you’ll notice it’s shiny, well defined and free of frizz. If you have curly hair you can apply more of the water until you’re satisfied with how your curls look. You can even massage your scalp every night with this mixture before you go to bed for maximum results.
You need to know that the shelf life of this natural remedy is 2 weeks max because the only preservative is the lemon juice, so don’t prepare large amounts at once. You need to keep it in a refrigerator and in an airtight container.
