Flax Seed Gel & Travel

kristajayekristajaye Registered Users Posts: 2
I love flax seed gel. My hair loves it. I make mine with no additives. The problem is that I will be going on a cruise and will not have access to a fridge. I've traveled with it before but after a few days out of the fridge, it has a rather unpleasant aroma.

Any ideas on an what I can add to make it last longer at room temp? I really don't want to use a commercial gel as a substitute for the week because it makes my scalp psoriasis worse. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    You'll need to use a preservative. GSE & essential oils are NOT preservatives.

    Liquid Germall Plus or Optiphen are great to use and they are paraben free. I've personally used both.

    I use Liquid Germall Plus at .5% or Optiphen at 1% of my formula.

    To figure out exactly how much to use you will also need to have a scale.
