    I gave myself a light scalp massage (just a few drops on my finger tips) with my infused oil. And promptly fell asleep :grin: @ElevatedEnergy you were right it’s so relaxing! I will be giving myself scalp massages every other night right before bed.

    I’m debating whether I want to add Ylang Ylang or Lavender essential oil for scent and relaxing properties and their hair benefits.


    P.S.
    wet a small section and rubbed oil on the length doing a tiny mini two strand twist. Feels super soft, dried really fast and absorbed well. I take this as a good sign that my strands like this mix as well

    Made this hair mask with turmeric. My hair felt soft and moisturized afterward.

    @water_n_oil and @ElevatedEnergy i will definitely be add ~5 drops to my oil !

    I’m excited to be figuring out a routine full of good natural ingredients/products that my curls love and makes my hair thrive.

    1. heavy oiling and intense scalp massage w my new DIY (likely the night before)
    2. Amla + bhringraj + warm water pre poo gloss 30-60min w heat (planning to add fenugreek powder to this mix in the future)
    3. Rinse and wash with Alikay Naturals black soap shampoo
    4. Oil rinse ? with my DIY infusion ?
    5. Deep condition 20-30 min w heat
    6. Rinse and Apply KCKT and spray with AVJ/H2O (I find it really hydrated the product for super smooth easy to comb hair)
    7. Apply oil or Shea butter and twist or braid

    Black rice water w/ ginger, cinnamon, and onion prepared (smells amazing). I added a few drops of lavender but I kinda wish I hadn't since it kind overpowers everything. Never really jumped on the rice water train but curious to see if my hair likes it as I move to mostly "juices & berries" hair care lol. Also prepped an acv spritz.

    ETA: Upon actual usage, my god the onion is so strong. May start another batch tonight w/o it.

    Picked up some yucca root today. I want to put it in a shampoo I'm working on, but I've never worked with this herb before. So I'll be testing it out on my next wash day to make sure I don't have any allergic reactions to it.

    Aritha, Shikakai and Yucca Root Wash. Sounds good for next wash day.

    @IDareT'sHair :2inlove:

    I cleaned up my mini fridge to house my products. Ignore the container at the bottom. It's for something else I'm working on.

    Using a mini fridge for concoctions sounds like the best idea. It keeps your beauty products away from food in the reg fridge and probably closer so don’t have to go all the way downstairs to grab that aloe gel in the middle of my skin care routine lol

    Yes!!! My house is 3 levels, so stairs on stairs on stairs on more stairs. Any reason to keep me from going back and forth is a winner in my book. Those stairs do keep me from needing to exercise though. My bootie is looking the best it has ever looked. :lachen:;)

    I admittedly haven't even used it on my own hair yet (used it once on dd1). Pretty sure I'll be too lazy about finishing the challenge but we'll see. I don't like doing too much to/for my hair.

    Prepped the second batch of BRW sans onion Thursday afternoon. Gonna put it in my spray bottle today. Definitely a much more bearable smell this time lol. Doesn't have much of a smell for that matter.

    ETA: Tossed some rosemary and ACV in a jar. Need to get mint and sage to do the same with those.

    Prepping for a Herbal Hair Wash

    2 cups of Distilled Water
    1 tablespoon Yucca Root Powder
    1 tablespoon Lavender Buds

    Simmering in my crockpot for an hour or two. When I gave everything a stir, it formed nice bubbles.

    Got some soapwort powder too, but I'll add that in next wash.

    Used up the last of my FRW with my pre-treat (coconut oil) and my DC (TGIN) this washday. I really need to stock up on bentonite clay so I can get back to my clay washes. Rhassoul just isnt the best for me.

    I feel the same way. I like Rhassoul for my face, but it leaves a weird waxy film on my hair. I've tried it in cleansers & conditioners and it's just a no for me. It's definitely not a must have. Once I'm out...it wont be a repurchase.

    This was so good. It was like a shampoo/tea rinse in one...I love a good ole multi purpose product. It Cleansed and Condtioned at the same time. I had tons of Shea Butter and Kinky Curly Custard around my hairline and it was able to remove it all....and my hair is ultra soft.

    I sprayed it on dry hair...massaged it into my scalp, put on a plastic cap and let it sit for 20 or so minutes.

    I put the rest in an applicator bottle, and used it to wash twice more in the shower.

    IMAG6211.jpg

    I didnt want to rock the boat by using a Treatment mask since my hair was already so stinking soft, so I just used my Marshmallow Rose Conditioning Milk instead.

    I wasnt expecting much but I am wow'ed that my hair got as clean as it did. Next week, I'll try a Soapwort and Burdock Root combo and if that is just as good....the next go round...I will combine it all. Trying to build a shampoo from scratch, so there will be tons of notes everywhere I post about what works/doesn't so sorry in advance for all the long posts that are sure to come. LOL
