    Did you buy flaxseeds to make the gel, or did you buy flaxseed gel that has already been made? In either case, it doesn't matter if you don't have an oil to use. I've used it without oil. It worked fine. I think oil is mainly a personal preference.

    My hair has a mix of low/med/high porosity, and it's medium textured (some are still fine, though!)

    You should try it without oil. FSG is already a more thicker/jelly consistency.

    I only add vitamin E oil to preserve it but I've noticed a much better shine factor and consistency (thicker) since I started adding it. Also my FSG has yet to get funky on me. (Start spoiling.) granted I tend to use it all up before the 3 week mark.

    hmm i think 2 wks. just keep it refridgerated and give it a good whiff once in a while. oh i also add AVG to help preserve it actually. i phrased that incorrectly. i meant the only oil (aside from essential) i used to was vitamin e.
