    I also used a clay mix for the first time in weeks; rhassoul, sodium bentonite, kaolin, silk amino acids, water a some hibiscus tea from the steeped dried flowers.

    I want to make another batch of oil with fenugreek and calendula (plus other herbs and spices) but I keep forgetting to get it started. So yesterday I tried something new and added a little fenugreek powder to a Shea butter mix that I whipped up for myself (mainly for hair use). I'm happy with how the mix feels on my skin. Let's hope the feeling lasts.

    Currently have a henna mix in my hair. I applied it at noon today thinking I could do some errands and get back home to do my hair, but as I'm just now getting home...

    On rinsing my henna mix (yogurt and green tea) I realised the coconut milk is vital for not leaving any of those little particles in my hair. So I did a shikakai mix after to get rid of the debris and it actually left my hair squeaky clean which was unexpected. I don't think it affected the henna but I'll watch it and see. Hair was still soft so I didn't feel the need to deep condition. Just used some shea butter along with my leave-ins to give additional moisture.

    My hair has been feeling pretty strong lately with the FRW/NPF leave-in spray. Maybe in a couple of months I'll branch out to different kinds of rice and proteins since my NPF is running out. Black rice seems interesting.

    Made an Amla, fenugreek and aloe Vera tea a week ago, sprayed throughout my hair and put it in one braid since I had no time to do anything else. Washed it on Sunday and omg detangling my tailbone length hair was (Surprisingly) a breeze. Also my hair felt stronger . It normally takes an hour or so, but it only took 30 minutes this time. Pretty sure the fenugreek and aloe were the main helpers this time.

    Going to incorporate these ingredients in a hair oil so I can use more often during the week.

    Green tea flax seed gel in the works. Never been a huge fan of fsg tbh but I try to cut down on plastic waste when it comes to hair (among other things) these days.

    Moving the fsg experiment to Saturday now. Left the container of soaking seeds on the counter and it got moldy. I have enough for a smaller batch but I'll probably go to Sprouts again to get more from the bulk section.

    I usually let my oil infusions sit at least 2-4 weeks (or longer). I did a coffee one and a fenugreek one about a month or so ago and haven't used them yet.

    Hopefully others will chime in.

    For your tea and oil infusions are you using all powders? Or is your fenugreek or flax in seed form?
