Well-Known Member
I hydrated some fenugreek powder with a tea of hibiscus, brahmi, fenugreek leaves, rose petal powder. I mixed and left for about 11hrs, then strained.

I massaged my scalp and detangled with the mix.

I'm prepooing with the plain mix on my scalp, and a mix on the length of my hair. I mixed with my onion skin tonic and a squeeze and scoop of a two DCs- Hair Feast and CR Algae Renew).

I'll sleep in this, wrapped in cling film and scarf.

Can anyone give me advice on the smell with fermented rice water? It makes my hair feels wonderful, but I don’t use it consistently because, again, the smell lmaooooo

Also, I would love to join this challenge! @IDareT'sHair

Oh and additionally, I use chebe in my deep conditioners inconsistently, and I henna my hair about 4x a year for the conditioning properties.

Glad to have you!

re: RFW - :barf: I read people adding EO's to the mixture. I never have.

When I was fermenting my own DIY FRW - I used it under my DC'er to cut down on the scent.

I've also read people cutting down the time they allow their FRW to ferment.

I started buying Pre-Made FRW products which normally don't have that stanky baby puke scent,

I mixed up some clay (kaolin + rhassoul), and some amla, brahmi, rose petal powder and hibiscus with boiled hot water. I massaged into my scalp, and then applied a mix without brahmi to my hair and let sit for 30mins.

ETA: I forgot to add that this mix also had a spoonful of flaxseed oil.

Made up a new hair tea with hibiscus and neem. Not crazy about the red colour and I hope it won't show up too much in my hair, but I've always liked including hibiscus in my loose regimen, so I may continue with it for this month.

ETA: And some lemon essential oil.
