Why use Flax Seeds for Hair Gel?

Flax Seed Hair Gel

We're kicking off our blog with a series of posts about each and every one of our 11 ingredients used in our hair gel and how they benefit your hair & scalp! 

Our first and primary ingredient is Brown Flax Seeds. They are literally the "glue" that holds it all together.  Flaxseeds are said to be rich in macronutrients like proteins and fiber, as well as micronutrients like a number of essential minerals and vitamins.  Let's break it down further below.

1. Omega 3 Fatty Acids:  Flaxseeds (especially the brown variety) are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are known for their beneficial properties for the skin and hair.  Omega-3 fatty acids nourish and strengthen the hair follicles, therefore preventing hair from drying up and getting brittle.  For the scalp, Omega 3 helps to keep it moisturized therefore preventing dry scalp and dandruff.  Lastly, studies have shown omega 3 help prevent thinning of hair, slow down hair loss.

2. Vitamin E:  Flaxseeds are rich in vitamin E, which promotes great skin and hair health.  Vitamin E promotes a healthy scalp by reducing free radical damage. It improves circulation in the head, thus promoting hair growth and slowing down hair breakage.

3. Minerals:  Flaxseeds act on both hair and scalp, due to the presence of nourishing nutrients like magnesium, manganese, selenium, and copper. These nutrients boost hair growth and help them grow stronger and longer. 

Flaxseeds have been one of the earliest crops cultivated by humans and we are lucky to be able to reap the incredible benefits of this power seed.  This along with the perfect blend of other essential oils make Flaxin Organics uniquely suited to help parents looking for an all-natural, vegan, organic hair gel that is safe for Kids, Mom, and Dad.  Let's get the entire family Flaxin!  🙏  Stay tuned to our blog for the next 10 ingredients!
