Flaxseed Oil

I have used the flaxseed gel many times and usually works well depending on weather. I know some store gels have the oil in it. But has anyone ever used the oil as part of their routine. I bought
Some at the health food store intending to consume it but now I'm considering mixing in my leave in.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    I ordered some along with chia seed and a couple other oils and tried it today. I think it's my new favorite sealing oil. I put it on after my leave in, it absorbed really well and left my hair feeling soft. I really like the chia seed oil, too, and mixed it with my prepoo oils. They both feel great on my skin, too.

    EDIT: So the flaxseed oil has kind of an earthy / nutty smell. I noticed it when putting it on and considered adding an EO to it, but it wasn't overwhelming so I skipped it. But this morning while fluffing my hair I could smell it again. I'll probably mix in a couple drops of ylang ylang next time I use it. It's not a bad smell but it doesn't really smell that good to me, either. I got mine from Dr. Adorable, so I'm not sure how other brands smell.

    My hair is still soft and moisturized. I did try out a bit of Aveda's anti-humectant pomade on my areas that are prone to frizz so I'm not sure how effective the oils is alone on combating frizz, but I have none and even took a hot bath last night.
