Flax Seed


Flax seed is unlike other gels that dry the hair. Flax seed actually can strengthen the hair by coating it with beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids. Flax seed transfers the fatty acid through the mucilage that it produces when boiled (Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve). Flaxseed gel gives a gentle hold with no flakiness when I use it in my recipes.

I purchased flax seed through Mountain Rose Herbs. To purchase a tria-size amount, click here. If you are into comparative shopping, try a Google search of flax seed and then click the “Shopping” tab. Let me know if you find this ingredient locally or for less $$$!

I would love to know how you use this ingredient! ❤ Ally

Comfrey Root


Comfrey Root is a herb that is rich in fatty acids that stimulate blood flow to the scalp, nourishes and strengthens hair follicles, to promote healthy hair growth and improve the overall condition of hair. (Chagrin Valley Soap and Salve Company) I bought this herb from  after I attended a natural hair event in the Bay Area and heard that it has great slip for the hair. I wanted to try this along with the burdock and see how it would affect the smoothness of my hair. When I used it in a home-made curl cream that I am still in the process of formulating, I was very happy with the slip and feel of it.
