2017 Delightfully Delicious Deep Conditioning Challenge

So it sounds like the powders, amla and brahmi in this case, also impacted the texture of your hair, too! Get ready, if you continue with the powders and oil for a minimum of 8 weeks and then heat straighten, that's when you can see the how the powders affect the texture. The hair is like fluffy silk.
I wasn't expecting the effects to happen so soon. I'm looking forward to doing this again.

On the Grow and Keeping it Simple
@Chicoro, you are amazing, lady! Thank you!

I shampooed w/Keracare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo
Oil rinsed with my DIY amla & brahmi oil.

Then, mixed amla and brahmi powder, and raw honey into some APB UCS. I think I used a bit too much powder (about 1 tbsp amla, 1/2 tbsp brahmi..maybe more, I was eyeballing). I adjusted a bit by adding more honey (about 1.5 tbsp total) and conditioner. I adjusted & mixed until the consistency was creamy and smooth. Applied, plastic cap, heat cap about 45 mins. I didn't have the typical UCS slip to rinse out, so I used SSI Avocado conditioner.

Y'all.

First of all, my curls & coils started poppin upon application. After rinse-out, I had definition from root to tip, like I've never felt before. Even in my stubborn, frizzy crown area. I kept running my fingers through the roots just to feel the definition. It was amazing. My hair felt SO nourished, hydrated, moisturized, conditioned, strong, soft. It was everything! This was my first time using ayurvedic powders in my DC. I know I want to continue using these powders. I'll go read through those other threads to make sure I do it right.

Used APB hair pudding as leave-in and APB Hurry Up & Grow oil for sealing & scalp. Twisted to air dry.

I purchased amla and brahmi powder because of this post. Mixing some powders into my DC/oil mix is just simple enough for me to try it out.

I did this years ago and have no idea why I stopped but since starting them again a few weeks ago, it's something I'll continue to do. I agree with @Jade Feria on popping curls after these treatments. My hair bun is noticeably thicker, darker, softer and stronger all at the same time. Folks are telling me my hair is growing in real fast :yep:

Prepooed w/my amla/brahmi oil mixed with extra red palm oil
Shampooed w/Keracare Hydrating Detangling Shampoo
DC'ed with APB UCS mixed with 2tsp amla, 1tsp shikakai, & 1tsp brahmi powders. I realized that in the time between mixing (right before I shampoo) and application of the DC, the mixture thickens up a bit, and I have to add some water. I did this last time as well. I liked the effect of the honey that I used last week, so I'll continue that as well.
Leave-In was SSI Coco Creme.
Sarenzo Beauty Creamy Oil to seal.

I'm sitting here trying to figure out whether or not I liked the Camille Rose Algae Renew DC. Last night, I tried it for the first time and for some reason, I wasn't wowed by it. It didn't pack the moisture punch that I was expecting....

....but....

....after careful consideration....

I have decided to give it another try; I will finish the jar and give it a fair chance...I will try it again!!!!:grin:

This morning, so far I have on CP growth oil on my scalp and hair as a prepoo.

I have some leftover henna in a double boil warming up to apply after prepooing for about 30 minutes.

I will stretch the henna with some kalpi tone and amla powders and mix in some Nexxus Polymedic Emergency Reconstructor because my hair feels like it needs some strength.

Moisturizing today with APB Moisturizing Hair Lotion.

Plaiting my hair up and wigging for the day.
