    Mine does.

    I infused a Fenugreek Oil, Chebe Oil and a Coffee Oil and the residue settled at the bottom of each.

    Mine too. I know some people like to shake it up after starting the infusing process, but I just leave mine alone. It keeps the powder settled and kind of stuck to the bottom. I pour off the oil just until I see the powder starting to try and slide out and then stop pouring.

    Ahhhh okay thanks! I did give it a good stir but it should be back settled by Sun/Mon when I strain.

    Growing at the speed of a sloth
    1st May application of chebe, but Monday is wash day so I'm super excited to see if I got any growth or an increase in thickness. Either way I have less shedding, so I want to see what my monthly shedding looks like.

    Ohhhhh my goodness, the mucilage from fenugreek! Can't wait to put it in my hair. I'll definitely go with the powder next time though vs seeds.

    My curly hair lasted 10 days....10 full MOISTURIZED days at that. I bunned for 6 days and then allowed my hair to rest in a french braid for the remaining days.

    So I'll be repeating all that wash day goodness from my last wash day.

    Making some rosewater in one pot.
    Marshmallow Root & Bhringraj in another pot.
    Prepping to make a leave in.

    Will be applying Fenugreek mask tonight and sleeping in it.

    Washing with clay and black soap shampoo.

    Using my Marshmallow Rose leave in.

    Used:
    Pure steeped Ginger Root as a Rinse under my Moisturizing DC'er and for my Final R/O.

    Also used a Honey Nectar Treatment from Kindred Butters (Under Steamer) - which is a suitable replacement for me, for Bekura's YAM.

    1st time: amla + bhringraj powder (2 spoonfuls ea) mixed with warm water + 1 big dollop of deep conditioner
    Applied gloss to damp dirty hair as a pre poo and let sit ~1 hour

    Rinse and shampoo x2 Alikay Naturals black soap shampoo
    Quick rinse w conditioner to detangle under water
    Obia Naturals deep conditioner under dryer for 20 min

    Going to do smallish two strand twists with my whipped Shea butter over KCKT


    I chose to do the pre-poo because I have noticed a bit more shedding and felt like my hair could do with a strengthening treatment and as I didn’t have any protein on hand I decided to try an Ayurvedic remedy. Hair definitely feels stronger and curls were poppin all over the place after rinsing (also it rinsed out fairly easily) tbd on the shedding

    These mixes sound divine. I’ll be interested to hear about the results of your leave in and fenugreek mask. I might have to incorporating that every other week for protein/strength. I wasn’t a fan of using the seeds as a spritz because of the smell

    This leave in is awesome. I've made 3 small test batches before this one. It's more of a milk....so yummy. But I've used it for a little of everything....detangling prepoo, DC, moisturizer or leave in. I prefer it as a leave in when I wear my hair curly.

    The Fenugreek Mask is probably the best mask I've made to date. Its rich, creamy and just glides. It's more moisturizing than strengthening....however when I need a bit more strength, I do add in a little hydrolyzed oats.

    If you don't like the smell of fenugreek, you kind of have to work with it then against it. I prefer to pair it with sweet smelling fragrances. Brown Sugar & Fig, Vanilla Lace or Amber Romance are my favorite to work with. That is, if you dont mind fragrance oils @SunkissedLife

    Finally caught up in this thread. I really appreciate all the delicious recipes. I want to make everything, but I know I need to use up what I have on hand before I buy anything else. I just need to be consistent and I'll have great hair and room for more ingredients in no time.

    Made a batch of brown RW. I poured off the liquid after 3 days and blended 2 tbsp of the reserved rice and the RW, then strained out the bits. It's frozen until I make my herbal tea. I have marshmallow root and slippery elm from my DIY detangler days so I'll add those to the tea as well.

    Since I've been wearing stretched styles I haven't washed as often and I haven't oiled my scalp as I should. I'm aiming for oiling at least twice a week. I'll use my oil blend in my next batch of whipped shea and I'll add some to my glosses on each wash day.

    Finally got round to grinding up some fenugreek seeds and mixed with hot water in preparation for a treatment tomorrow. Tonight I'm pre-pooing my hair with Faith In Nature Seaweed & Citrus con with hot rice bran and safflower oils.

    $Free.99. Isn't it adorable? Also picked up some "Forbidden rice" (pretty sure it's simply black rice...), ginger, and flax seeds.

    My hair was like silk this morning after rinsing. I used up the last of my manuka honey so next time I'll move on to creamed honey when I want to do the treatment again.

    Did you try any of your tea rinses from Nature's Ego yet? They all sound so good!
