Flaxseed Gel

Has anyone here tried flax gel for taming frizz and loose hairs? Normally I use plain, clear aloe vera gel but I found that this works better and lasts longer. It is sticky and doesn't keep super long, maybe a week or two in the fridge in a covered container, but it's not hard to make at all and you can do it in small batches as you need it. Also, it rinses totally clean after washing so there's no gunky buildup and conditions slightly but not enough to hinder the locking process.

So far I've done this twice, my dreads are 1 month old. If anyone else tries it let me know how you like it!
