    I just add a tablespoon of powder to about 2 ounces of conditioner. With other powders I've needed to mix them with water then add the paste to my DC, but I've been able to mix the SA directly without issues. To answer your hairstyle question I've been using kimmaytube styles such as her twisted bun. I use more twists because my hair is thicker but it's been a great way to keep my hair separated, moisturized, and provide access to my scalp. 201907222328243409702863423.jpg

    Ive been using Sirod Naturals Fermented Black Friday for the last two days as a refresher before bed.

    Has a few ayurvedic herbs in it, which is a plus.

    @SunkissedLife I'm wearing my hair similar to @weavepat

    Braids/Twists pulled up into a top knot.

    This set has been in since July 1st and now that I see how easy of a hairstyle it is, I plan on keeping them in for a while. Like weavepat stated, it is great at keeping the hair seperated and I have found that it also gives you a chance to have an intimate connection with your hair. I knew I had different curl patterns already, but I have also found that some areas of my hair are fine...while others are coarse and which areas need more attention.

    I do plan on making cleaner parts down the road now that I plan on sticking to this style.

    Yall, I think I've found the best henna alternative when I still want the henna benefits but dont have the time or energy for a full henna treatment. Its Zizyphus powder.

    Not to mention, it easily rinsed out of my hair.

    I really like Sedr. I just havent gotten a chance to use up mine. I think I'll do a mask right before I get these braids installed.

    Sedr is good stuff. Usually I mix it in with Sukesh.

    QB used to have a product I loved with it.

    Is the Sedr more strengthening or moisturizing?

    @BeautifulRoots it's definitely for strengthening. I think sedr needs to be properly hydrated like fenugreek powder to rinse well. When I first tried making sedr masks I'd be left with small clumps if I just did a standard "mix, sit for a while, mix again" technique that I use for most powders.

    Coconut milk and green tea, but I think my next try will be with water

    I got both honestly. I think the fact that I mixed it with coconut milk helped.

    I usually mix with coconut milk and follow up with a moisturizing deep conditioner.

    Yes I let the mix sit for probably 2 hours until a a smooth consistency. I didn’t need to use any conditioner afterwards. I just rinsed with acv and water.

    Been busy moving to a new apartment, but still have bern using my saw palmetto oil for massages and did a fresh Chebe oil infusion to add to a Shea butter whip. Also did a fenugreek oil infusion, added some of that oil to my Saw palmetto/burdock root/horsetail oil mix I’ve Been using for for scalp massage.

    think this will be the routine I try to stick to. Gives me the protection and sealed in moisture of Shea butter braids but I still get to wear my hair out without doing too much damage.

    Your hair looks crazy thick and healthy. Having access and oiling/massaging your scalp is definitely key to strong healthy hair

    This seems ideal when my hair grows to longer lengths. Right now I can only gather all my hair into 1 pony/bun while soaking wet n stretching to the max. I can’t believe they lasted so long. Twists definitely not but I tried individual braids recently and I think that could work (and the braids stretched my hair more). This seems like an excellent way to keep hair healthy moisture and ends protected. And it’s super cute!


    Thanks for all the responses ladies!!! It’s so helpful to see how hair is styled and worn on a regular basis vs just what’s done in wash day (example: curlformer sets used to be my jam but only look like that day 1 then it’s a whole different style and routine) I love seeing full routines

    Ooo, right up my alley. ACV is one of my favorite ingredients ever. I leave it in (most of the time) personally. Also love your hair in this video!

    Thank you dear! How much do you dilute your ACV for use as a leave in?
