    Chupie, I think that's who she's talking about (" I was directed to a Facebook page (Curly Elixirs, I think), but havent gotten a response from her").

    Very interesting! I might even give something that simple a try. Too busy and lazy to mess with cooking it.

    What happens after 6 days, or do you know? Looks like if refrigerated, it would last a little longer than that . . . .

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    After 6 days refriderated it goes bad! This is with no additives, my cooked version lasts 10 days. But the no cook saves me much time and hassle. I have used the same seeds 3 times with good results.

    Flaxseeds are a food item, they go off same as any food and you cannot always tell - that is why food poisoning happens. Refrigerating only slows that process down. Boiling the gel kills more bacteria so that might increase the life, ditto using a preservative.
