In the modern age, both women and men, regardless of age and status, are increasingly interested in taking care of their body image, for which in some cases they invest a lot of their time, creativity and money in being fashionable and looking the most impeccable and attractive you’re possible.
A fabulous secret for hair
But not only are the suits, bags, wallets and shoes the essential elements to look well groomed, healthy and well-groomed hair is also an essential part of our presence, since this constitutes the frame of our face, so every time each time receives more attention from both individuals and companies and laboratories, who work every day to provide their audience with products specialized in each hair type and their needs.
Perhaps one of the most used products for the realization and preservation of hairstyles, both feminine and masculine, is the fixer (also known as gel, gelatin, lacquer). However, its daily use can cause great damage to the hair, such as weakness, opacity, fall, dandruff and dryness, due to its components based on alcohol and polymers, similar to those used for the manufacture of glues and paints.
Even in recent years, scientists have discovered that some hairsprays (among other cosmetic products) may include into their phthalale ingredients, as well as Dietilexylfatalate (DEHP) and Dibutylphthalate (DBP) which when entered in contact with the scalp can reach the bloodstream, through the skin, causing liver, kidney, lung conditions, as well as hormonal alterations that can affect weight, fertility and even the fetus during pregnancy.
In response to this situation, several cosmetologists have brought natural techniques to the scene to achieve the same fixative effect as lacquer. Within this category we can find the hair fixer made of flaxseed based. Here’s an example of how to make your own hair fixer, one hundred percent natural, at home.
First you will need the following ingredients:
- 250 grams flaxseed
- Two cups of water
- You will also need these elements:
- A medium pot
- A colander
- A glass container
Once you have all the ingredients and elements handy, light the fire and place the pot with the two cups of water, and wait for it to boil. When the water has reached the boiling point, pour the 250 grams of flaxseed into it and cook for about twenty minutes. Turn off the heat and let your preparation rest and cool.
When it is at room temperature, proceed to strain your mixture: place the strainer over the mouth of the container that will serve as the final destination of your preparation and hang it. You will immediately notice the thickness of the mixture. Some cosmetology professionals advise adding a vitamin E ampoule to your preparation.
Once you’ve finished snifling the mix, it’s ready to use. It is advisable to keep it refrigerated and not use it for more than a week, because being of organic origin tends to decompose and take bad odor after this time.
This way it will be ready for use whenever you want to use it to fix your hairstyle. You can also dilute it with a little water and place it in an atomizer container, which allows you to use this preparation just as you use your commercial lacquer, but without taking the risks that seem to be involved in the use of chemical cosmetics.
