mane tail spray.
Thank you for having me
did my first rice water (infused with green tea and hibiscus) and onion juice treatment post relaxer last night; my hair is feeling great!
After the shea sat for a few days it hardened. I melted it down and added a couple tablespoons of ayurvedic infused coconut oil and another tablespoon of hibiscus powder. The mix is easier to work with. My next batch will keep these same proportions, but I think I'll swap out one of the tablespoons of coconut oil for grapeseed's ceramides.
Still doing HOTs with this mix before I detangle.
I apply henna to my detangled hair. I've been able to henna weekly without dryness thanks to the butter.
Still leaving in ayurvedic RW rinse.
I have enough henna left for 1-2 treatments. After that I think I won't repurchase for a while. I have herbal powders and DCs I want to use up so I'll probably use glosses until I clear out the stash.

I just prepared my rice water and will do henna tomorrow.
I've jumped back into the ayurvedic game. I plan to mix powders into my cheapie condish. I just purchased amla, brahmi, bhringraj, and cassia. I need to find some fenugreek. Once a month I will use a clay wash. And lastly I'm thinking I may make my own rice water. I want to do a little more research on you tube.
PS. All of these will most likely be supplemented with products from shops that incorporate ayurveda into their products
Pre-pooing (+ steam) with my whipped Shea mix, honey, some oil infused with fenugreek and other herbs, and FIN conditioner.
I'll use clay today, and maybe mix with some rice water or do a separate rinse with it.
NYLE Oil which is: Amla, Hibiscus, Fenugreek, Henna & Vetiver
Did an overnight clay treatment (rhassoul, kaolin, yogurt powder, goats milk powder, peppermint, green tea). Hair was soft and detangled that even after I did my olaplex and protein treatment it was still soft. I didnt have enough time to DC and I'm not even stressed.
Made a clay mix using rhassoul, c.bentonite, kaolin, silk amino acids and rice water, with a splash of ACV. I separated a portion, added Brahmi and massaged into my scalp. Sitting with this for about an hr before I rinse.

I think we were definitely doing our fenugreek powder wrong. Check out this video. It's in Italian BUT the you can turn on the closed captions in English.
did a rice rinse, use bamboo tea spray
This is really interesting. I want to try that the next time I use fenugreek and see if I can get to be that consistency.

Thank you for posting this! @mzteaze
Haven't posted here in awhile LOL!!
My clay mud rinse (not mask) is a winner! This is the third time I've used it, and I just love the results . The bentonite clay makes up about 2oz of the 8oz bottle I use. The rest is ACV, AVJ, water, a splash of olive oil, glycerin and essential oils. The mix is super runny and gets everywhere in the shower
hey hey hey finally getting back into a normal routine. I’ve been consistently using the CRN cocoa nibs Ayurvedic oil and love it. This weekend I washed my hair with a rhassoul clay bar from Lakshmi Cupboard. It was a sample I got from my friend. It did take forever because although it lathered the suds didn’t spread well if you know what I mean so I had to keep lathering my hands and working in small sections. Let my hair air dry before spraying aloe Vera juice/water and braiding with my whipped Shea butter.
At this point I have a good after wash routine and products. Although I’m thinking of incorporating Ayurvedic powders/oils into my Shea butter mix. But I’m still on the hunt for a good natural cleanser, preferably one that suds. I like the Alikay naturals honey and sage deep conditioner but think I’m definitely going to start experimenting with making my own.
Other things: henna or cassia ?! I used to henna often but stopped and think I need that monthly mask to boost my hair health and growth. I’m not sure if I want the color though and I’ve been really interested in cassia lately but haven’t seen many reviews... anyone have any experiences to share? Especially if you’ve experimented with henna and cassia

Can you tell me more about your Shea butter and powder infusions? I am in love with using my diy whipped Shea butter for my twists and braids and would love to incorporate Ayurvedic powders but felt like it would make my mix grainy or have to be washed out. It seems like you used it as a deep conditioner so you didn’t leave it in? I didn’t know Shea butter could be a deep conditioner
My Blends have never whipped up grainy or gritty.
I added my ayurveda powder, a tiny bit of oil and whipped with my electric mixer.
I've used: Argan, EVOO, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Hempseed, Sweet Almond, Emu, Vitamin E, Avocado, Jojoba etc... (sometimes I add glycerin to the blend)
My Blends always whipped out smooth and nice and fluffy.
Nothing was ever grainy or gritty and I've mixed everything from Amla, Bramhi, Kalpi Tone Powder to Chebe Powder and everything in between.
@Ltown How did it turnout?
Happy Hair Growing!
Thanks! I’m placing an order with Hennasooq and will definitely be making an Ayurvedic butter
I massaged aloe vera gel into my scalp and then followed it up with my Ayurvedic Oil Infusion. My twa was refreshed as well from the aloe vera since it got on my hair too.
Oh, and I've never used any of my Blends as a DC'er, but I bet they would make a nice Pre-Poo.
Thanks so much for sharing this video @mzteaze . It is probably the best video I have seen on fenugreek. I just saved it in my YouTube hair care playlist. It's a long process but it definitely has me motivated to try it for sure.
I know you'd like this one a lot @GGsKin. I especially like how she added clays to it to boost it's effects. I am excited for sure to start using my clays now. I still haven't been using them - now I really want to because of this video.
I should be able to do something with my hair this coming weekend since my flu is gone and my mild lingering cold is almost over...I hope.
I am so ready to do my hair again. Plus it looks like I will need another hendigo treatment soon as well.
You can use it as a deep conditioner if you wish @SunkissedLife. Just simply add your powders to your SB blend of butter and oils, add to your hair for a normal DC, rinse, style as usual.
If you are doing a blowout afterwards as your style of choice, I would not recommend using the SB as this may weigh down your hair. I wig style my hair so it has not been a problem for me.
Ayurveda powders are so versatile, they can be used in almost any aspect of your hair regimen. Just know which ones are moisturizing, cleansing, strengthening, etc and that should give you a guideline on how and when to use them.
