    It's a bit late for a mid year update but that's because my regimen is on autopilot right now.

    What's in:
    • ayurvedic refresher spray using CS henna blend
    • diluted this mix to make a leave in tea rinse
    • hennasooq's sukesh ayurveda mixed into DCs
    What's on the bench:
    • henna: I only use it post relaxer now
    • rice water: I had 2.5" of new growth in 13 weeks. I stopped using it to see if that growth rate was the result of rice water or my standard regimen.
    Happy growing everyone!

    @IDareT'sHair Everything I've phased out has been a store bought product. The product most relevant to this thread is cantu's root rinse. I liked the essential oils and how my hair felt relatively clean without being stripped. I just haven't felt the need to repurchase. I've been thinking about making an inspired diy using a tea blend as a base while adding in herbs with natural saponins and or coco betaine.

    The only thing diy related that's out out is labor intensive wash days. That's why I cut back on straight henna. I often don't have the time for it to sit, then rinse/cowash out, then moisture DC.
    If it doesn't rinse out easily it has no place in my regimen. That's why most of my herbs are infused in oils or teas. The exception is the sukesh ayurveda blend. Very finely milled. I add it to DCs so I don't have to use a moisture DC after I rinse to save time.

    I like Cantu's Root Rinse too! :love:

    If you and @water_n_oil come up with a good blend, maybe I'll try to do a DIY ACV/Tea Blend.

    Washed my braids at the beginning of the week with yucca root powder. 1 tablespoon yucca root to 1 cup of water. I put it in my magic bullet for around 15 seconds to activate the saponins a bit better than just shaking it by hand. LOL

    Towel dried, spritzed with rosewater and sealed with Shea Nilotica. Braids nice and clean...but I was left with a bit of the yucca powder as I expected since I didnt use conditioner to kinda help rinse it out. I'll be sticking to this routine until the cold weather hits though, then add in some herbal oil/tea infusions for conditioning and scalp care. My scalp acts a fool in cold weather. LOL

    So I started 2 different oil infusions (1 for scalp and 1 for hair) for when that time comes, so that way the infusions will be strong and potent.

    Hair:
    Bhringraj, Fenugreek, Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm, Burdock Root and a few others I cant remember in some Peach Kernel Oil, Argan Oil, Kukui Oil, Ricebran Oil & Shea Nut Oil.

    Scalp:
    Bhringraj, Fenugreek, Burdock Root, Lavender, Nettle, Rosemary and a few others I cant remember in some Sunflower Oil, Tamanu Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil & Vitamin E oil.

    *Just basically using up random almost empty bottles of oils/herbs chilling around the house.

    Mine too...I feel like I'm basically saying and posting the same things over and over again. LOL But I was excited to share my new infusions today. Woot Woot!

    I so love Sesa oil. It smells gross but it's the BEST prepoo and no yucky mineral oil.

    Can you tell me more about how you incorporate the sukesh powder into your DC? I have some and would love to try it this way. I definitely understand about the time and energy suck full masks can be

    I was wondering

    Could you all share your hair styles? For example after you spritz w your tea or apply your oil etc what else are you doing to your hair ? How do you style it?

    Is it that you only massage a very small amt of oil to scalp only so your hair style is not affected? Trying to balance healthy hair care with being cute and minimize time/energy spent

    I do 8 braids on wash day and wear them in a ponytail. I wear a braid out 2 days later and pineapple that at night until I'm ready to wash again. I don't add anything to my hair between wash days except on the rare occasion that I rebraid with water and castor oil.
