Natural hair gel is easy to make, and is a cheap alternative to store-bought hair gel. Natural hair gel is better for your hair in some cases, because it does not have harmful chemicals like alcohol to dry out your hair. Try the different natural hair gels that work best with your hair and the look you are trying to achieve.


Flaxseed, when boiled with water, creates a hair gel that makes your hair shine. To make this gel, put two tablespoons of flaxseed into one cup of water in a pot. Boil them together until they combine into a mixture. Let this cool, and add lavender, or another scented oil, to the mixture, and put it into a jar. It is now ready to use as hair gel.


Use unflavored gelatin to make gel for your hair. Boil 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of gelatin with a cup of water. This is a simple, quick way to make hair gel. You can also add scented oil to this mixture. Spread evenly throughout your hair so there are no crunchy or crispy chunks of hair.

Aloe Vera

Use 100 per cent pure aloe vera gel as an all-natural hair gel. Aloe vera has holding and moisturising qualities that are better for your hair than many gels. However, while it provides some hold and texture, aloe vera does not provide a strong holding effect.
