    Tonight I applied Nature's Ego Fenugreek Scalp Serum before massaging my scalp. My head is all tingly now.

    Now the problem is when you stocked up in a fit of craziness years back and still cant work through it. My face doesn't like it either, but every few months or so I get the urge to revisit it. The film thing is very real, especially on my scalp. I'm going to start hunting for people to give it away to.

    Started a hibiscus flower oil infusion. Im lowkey hoping it doesn't deposit color to my hair. Anyone know if hibiscus oil will change your hair color?

    As a starting point, my hair was lighter than 1b. From my experience, if it does leave some colour deposit, it is nothing too noticable or permanent on its own. When I use henna, I add it to my mix to bring out the red and I find it does an effective job there. I use tea from steeped dried flowers to mix my diluted KCCC and it doesn't add any colour to my hair, even though my gel turns pink.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with it. I was wondering if it leaves color like henna, but it doesn't sound like it does. I feel a bit better trying it out.

    I feel like I've been working on this RoseWater based spray forever. Geesh. I kept trying to make this work with brocolli seed oil (for slip) and it wasn't coming out the way I wanted, so I went back to old faithfuls. Too many herbs to type out so, here's a picture:

    IMAG6223.jpg

    It's nice and smooth with no oil seperation. I used Polysorbate 80 to emulsify and keep it all together.

    IMAG6216.jpg

    I use it to moisturize before sealing with Shea Butter, as a scalp spray or as a light leave in for roller sets.

    I was thinking about your posts on Rhassoul (film).

    Were you two having the same results with mixing the Rhassoul like Rhassoul & Bentonite or Rhassoul & Kaolin, Rhassoul & Charcoal etc.......

    Did you try it mixed with something else?

    Not sure if I noticed this on what I am currently using?

    Good Posts Ladies!

    I've tried Rhassoul alone....Rhassoul, ACV & Water....Rhassoul and Bentonite, Rhassoul & AVJ....

    I don't care for Bentonite though...I find it too stripping and it irritates my scalp...it strips my hair color too (indigo).

    My favorite clay is Rose Kailon Clay but I prefer clay in general on my face and not on my hair.

    I realize that almost everyone in this thread is not a newbie, but I thought I'd drop this Henna gloss video anyway for those who may be interested. I used Henna, Amla, Brahmi, Shikakai, Herbal Tea infusion and my infused oil for this mixture.

    Green tea shampoo and ayurvedic shea during today's wash. Finished the last of the ayurvedic black soap earlier in the week. While I liked it, I think I like my green tea shampoo better.

    Shampoo’d twice and under the dryer with an amla mask (amla 4 spoons + aloe Vera 1 spoon + herb oil sludge leftover from my infusion) and added a big dollop of conditioner because it was not easy to spread through my hair.

    Final confirmation I am not here for mixing up my own masks. While I feel they are the most effective and powerful use of herbs I want an easy quick wash day and I like all my products to melt into my hair. I will only do masks for henna and/or indigo for color. Because otherwise I ain’t got time lol

    Has anyone tried Bask & Bloom products since their rebranding/relaunch ?? I really want to find an Ayurvedic packed deep conditioner and I would be good to go. I’m slowly but surely finding my staples.

    I do love Obia Naturals deep conditioner (which I’ll be using after this) and Alikay Naturals Honey and Sage but I want something packed with Ayurvedic herbs and that I don’t have to mix myself with lots of slip to deep condition. Besides that I will be using infused oils and want to try infusing my Shea butter

    @SunkissedLife
    I love Bask & Bloom. And you're right, it is packed full of Ayurveda.

    Haven't tried it since the relaunched/rebranding. If fact, I didn't know they did this.

    I have a jar or two before the relaunch.

    @IDareT'sHair

    I've also tried these combinations and noticed the same film across. If I mix it with bentonite there's less of a film on my hair but my scalp is still coated and irritated. Ive never tried it with Kaolin (I don't think) and i wouldn't only because Kaolin is more for conditioning rather than cleaning and I'd prefer to pair it with another clay that gives a better clean.

    This afternoon I made some herbal tea rinse tonight with HOPS, black tea and brahmi powder. This I will be pouring on my hair while in the shower.

    I also made some Fenugreek/AVJ tea rinse to spray my scalp and hair with for strength and moisture through the week.

    I put some rice water to ferment last night. I'll be straining to use as a refrigerated spray during the week tonight.

    rinsed last evening with fermented rice infused with hibiscus mint tea, and onion and ginger juice. My shedding has finally subsided!

    Roughly 3 oz of herbs from an oil infusion and 1 cup of boiling water. Let rest for a few hours so the powders can absorb the water and thicken into more of a paste. I'll strain out the larger bits and apply after I detangle my hair for an overnight treatment.

    Definitely contains:
    • horsetail
    • nettle
    • neem
    • amla
    • hibiscus
    • burdock root
    • vanilla bean
    Might contain brahmi and bhringraj. I usually include both in my infusions but my order receipt doesn't reflect this. I infused two batches at once. One contained henna as well so if my hands are stained I'll know which one. All infusions I made after this were labeled to avoid confusion.
