    Just mixed some of my conditioner combo with brahmi, amla, henna, kalpi tone, and bhringraj powders, 2 ounces of Bhringraj oil, in a jar and letting it sit to use up as a conditioner.

    I also just put some nettle, black tea, Belle Bar green tea, hibiscus tea, and rose hips on the stove brewing for next the next week's herbal tea rinse. I used up the rest of the last batch this morning.

    I have a quick question for those who use ayurvedic powders. What do you do with the left over powder after making teas or oil infusions? I was wondering if I could get more uses out of them instead of throwing them away?

    Thank you for your suggestion!!! My hair came out perfect :grin:
    I mixed ACV with water and essential oils (rosemary, peppermint, and tea tree). I focused on my scalp then poured the mix down the length of my hair. Afterwards, I poured on a mix of warmed coconut milk, AVJ, honey, CO and essential oils (lavender, tea tree, rosemary and eucalyptus) on each section.

    My hair came out strong, soft, defined and smells like lavender :grin:

    I add them to my deep conditioners each week. About a tablespoon for each DC.

    I applied my amla-brahmi-fenugreek infused oil to my scalp today and gave my scalp a little massage. I've got my hair in braids so that's all I've got so far.

    I did my weekly green tea infused rice water and onion juice. My shedding is almost nipped in the but

    Question have any of you infused your rice water with anything other than green/black tea?

    I throw mine away. I have a ton of powders in my stash and wish to use them up before they expire but you could actually put them in your cowash or deep conditioner and use them up again that way if you wish.

    Ditto what the other ladies said. I also reuse it to make more oils or tea before adding it to conditioner. I put it into a bag and freeze or put in the fridge in between each use.

    You could also make a paste out of it and use it up that way.

    Oh wow, I never considered expiration dates. Would still work the same after their expiration dates? I always thought since it was dried powder they would be good even after the date on the box...

    That's a good idea (freezing or refrigerating between uses) I'll try that out too. Thanks!

    Yes but bare in mind, they are still plants, even though they are dry. They typically have a shelf life of 3 years from the packaging date. As for efficacy, I highly doubt it after this time. Unrefined Shea butter and other butters all come from plants and they also expire and after that, they greatly lose their ability to condition the hair.

    Refrigeration is good for about 2 weeks but freezing them is better for any longer than this.

    I made a strong ayurvedic tea some time ago and put it in the freezer. I used to take a few cubes and put them in a spray bottle as needed, but since I do weekly tea rinses I already have tea for my spray bottle on hand.

    I took the cubes that were left and melted them down and mixed with two packets of knox gelatin. Poured the mix into cubes and put in the freezer. Back in 2016 I used to treat my hair weekly with a henna gelatin to strengthen my transitioning hair. Now I'll use it to maintain my relaxed hair. I use them alone or take a couple and mix with conditioner.

    Used ACV before shampooing as a detangler. Made some bhringraj oil and used it on my hair to seal along with some shea butter.

    Sprayed my hair and scalp with my herbal tea rinse this afternoon. Made another batch that's in the fridge right now to start using tomorrow or Tuesday.

    I made my next hair appt this Saturday. That means I have to take down these box braids before Friday and Henna!

    I'll mix my henna up depending on how soon I can get someone to take these braids out.

    Bentonite mask was a FAIL!!!!
    It was my fault though because I went crazy with the ACV, so I ended up clarifying the heck out of my hair :cry3:. No, I didn't follow up with a DC. I would have if I hadn't been rushing to leave. I'll have to do something when I get off of work tonight.
