    Just made some Fenugreek oil to brew for a week on my window sill.

    I also made some fenugreek rinse with AVJ and put it in the fridge to steep overnight before adding some peppermint and rosemary essential oils to it. I will start using that one tomorrow on my scalp and hair.

    Y'all reminded me of that aloe vera gel and oil moisture pre-poo, so that's how my wash day started. I also deep conditioned with fenugreek and amla powder. I slowing incorporated the boiling water and fenugreek powder making that goopy mix before adding the amla powder and more water. Then I let it marinate for a few hours and added conditioner. I really like this combo. My curls are defined and my hair has nice sheen too.

    Sprayed and massaged my Fenugreek Tea Rinse on scalp and hair. The peppermint, Rosemary and Tea Tree oil in it have my scalp all wonderfully tingly. I am storing it in the fridge especially because of the AVG in it. It looks like it's enough for at least 2 weeks.

    Here's is the recipe I used with a tiny change of adding about 2 ounces of my Hops, Earl Grey, and Horsetail Shavegrass herbal tea rinse I had in the fridge:

    So @WaistLengthDreams, did you strain your fenugreek before adding your conditioning mask? Or did you add the entire mix on your hair? If the latter, did you have any problems washing out the fenugreek powder completely from your hair?

    No, I don't strain it. Now that you mention it, I did use to get those tiny little balls of fenugreek left in my hair. But since I've started using the fenugreek seeds that come already powdered (as opposed to crushing them or soaking the seeds then blending them), I don't get that anymore. I also use about 2 measuring teaspoons of the powder. But it rinses out as easy as a conditioner with no powders added. Here's my hair now.

    Wow! :shocked: Your hair is really pretty. I love it. I have some actual fenugreek powder in my stash that I can use instead of crushing the seeds I have. I'm so glad I asked this question. I need to try this to see if it will work for me as well as it did for you.

    I put the seeds from the rinse into a freezer lock bag and storing it in the freezer to recycle and use again in a mask most likely. This one I will have to strain after blending it of course. I will post it here once I decide to do it.

    Thanks love. I'm a little nervous about trying it, but I'll do it anyway and I'll probably do a protective style and hide my hair just in case it doesn't come out right.

    Made the Herbal Tea Leave in Spray. Ended up using:
    Herbal Tea Infusion
    Rose Water
    Broccoli Seed Oil
    Oat Oil
    Marula Oil
    Pro-Vitamin B5
    I preserved it with a food grade preservative (Potassium Sorbate) and fragranced it with tuberose oil. It smells so goodt! I poured it in an empty rosewater spray bottle, but I have some pretty apothecary bottles coming for all my little products to live in.

    Pulled out 2 Ayurvedic Herbal Tea Pops from the freezer to make a conditioner with tomorrow. I'm getting everything lined up and ready for my upcoming wash day.

    Wow, my fenugreek herbal rinse shrank my hair something fierce today - but I think it was because I added some herbal tea rinse to it. I'll leave the herbal tea out when I make it next time. My hair feels so strong too. A girl can get used to this :yep:

    I left some rice in water overnight to start my FRW and forgot to strain it before I left for work this morning. Hopefully this doesn't affect its potency.

    I'll strain it tonight and put it in the fridge.

    I washed my hair with Aritha, Hibiscus and Aloe. It took a while to completely rinse from my hair but it felt good afterwards. Here's the video for my mix.

    Finished making my Ayurvedic Balancing Conditioner. Very rarely do I get conditioners right on the first try but this one is banging so i wont be adjusting any measurements/ingredients.

    Powders used: Henna, Bhringraj, Fenugreek, Amla, Coconut Milk, Banana, Aloe Vera, Guava Fruit & Honey. (Mixed with herbal tea).

    Other ingredients:
    Murumuru Butter
    BTMS 50
    Argan oil
    Kukui Oil
    Tamanu Oil
    Hydrolyzed Oats
    Preserved with Potassium Sorbate
    Fragranced with Bonfire Bliss fragrance oil.

    It's marinating now in my hair and I will rinse in the morning. I made 12 ounces and I only used 3 for my entire head, so this conditioner should last around 3 more washes. The slip is insane...I'm assuming from the fenugreek.

    Very nice. Is BTMS hard to mix in? Like can i just add in it to a mix randomly or do I actually have to follow a protocol?

    Strained my FRW into a spray bottle and added lavender, grapefruit, rosehip and rose fragrance oils. Sprayed over my bun and ponytail and then topped it off with shea butter.

    It smells delicious! @water_n_oil If you are familiar with Bath & Body works "Marshmallow Fireside"....it smells similar to that. A toasted, sweet, smoky, woodsy, night air-ish type scent. This is the company description:

    A fragrance reminiscent of gentle, dusky breezes and bonfires, with notes of dried, wind-blown leaves, heliotrope, charred woods of pine and cedar, amber, smoky sandalwood, and musk with a background containing hints of roasted marshmallows, brown sugar, coconut and soft vanilla. This is a fascinating, complex, unique and appealing scent.

    It is definitely true to its description.

    BTMS is fairly easy to work with, however it does require melting it first similar to how you would work with a hard butter like cocoa butter.

    Unfamiliar with that BBW scent but that sounds incredible. I haven't played around with FOs yet but I think I want to try a few for shea and a conditioner recipe I have in the works.

    I have been doing scalp massages with no oil or minimal whipped shea butter almost every other day since getting my hair straightened. last night I noticed my scalp was kind of sore when I went to massage it (hopefully that means my hair is gonna be grow grow gowing!) and oil length of hair with my DIY growth herbal oil mix. omg this makes my hair soooooo soft and I always get such good. I think it's the ylang ylang EO.


    back to curly wash day tonight:

    Sukesh Ayurveda pack but I'm not sure if I should apply to dry dirty hair and wash after or shampoo first

    deep condition with Obia Naturals

    trialing of ATON leave in and butter (so buttery and melts instantly, first ingredient is shea butter and I think this may be my fav pre-made shea butter blend)


    debating if I should rock a twist out or try two jumbo braids with extension hair -- I wanna be super cute for this festival this weekend lol

    This sounds and looks amazing!!! Also love that you added preservatives so it’s shelf stable and will last multiple wash days.

    Can you provide additional details about the benefits of the butter and oils? I haven’t heard of some of them before
