    :grin::grin: I was unofficially in the last challenge and learned so much :yep:

    My staples are:
    Bhrami
    Bhringraj
    Cassia
    AVJ
    Shikaikai (sp)

    I've been thinking about using henna during the spring and summer but I don't know if I can deal with the mess. I've thought about adding the henna powder straight into my cheapy conditioners (gloss) to save time. Still figuring out how to make it quick and easy.

    But for now I do rinses with the other powers above or pastes regularly and my hair loves it!

    WOOHOO! I've been waiting for this!:yay:

    I'll be using various herbs for teas (nettle's my favorite), prepackaged teas, AVJ, and henna. Planning to try brahmi, bringhraj, and kalpi tone, maybe start using my shikaikai shampoo bar again. Will go shopping at Patel Brothers tomorrow!

    Oops! Almost forgot coffee! This is a must-have before I DC.

    IDareT'sHair you know I'm a tea head for life so count me in for this challenge. I have a ton of teas and herbs and do like to mix it up each wash but faves that I typically use are: burdock root, marshmallow root, slippery elm, horsetail, nettle, blue malva flowers, moringa, bamboo leaf, hibiscus/rose-hip and rooibos. My current reggie is to do a tea rinse layered under a light protein DC before cleansing. For the new year, I will be adding a final tea rinse of moisturizing herbs (blue malva, hibiscus, rooibos, etc) with a touch of ACV to close the cuticles and boost sheen and shine. Wishing everyone a successful, healthy hair journey for 2013!

    I completely slacked off last challenge. I'm going to a health food store soon to explore more teas. I can't get up the courage to use ACV, I know its silly but I just can't wrap my mind around that. I want to rinse weekly then in the spring/summer three times a week after cowashing. I will be more consistent this year, I have to if I'm going to make BSL.

    I want to join but I am not sure how the coffee is being applied. Is it a final rinse? A pre-poo?

    thanks MissT for starting back up the 2013 threads!!!! I must say that this thread and the oils thread introduced me to some products and got me using some old staples that really did my hair good in 2012 :spinning:

    Teas
    I draw my teas in water then add AVJ 50:50 ratio

    hibiscus
    marshmallow
    rosehips
    nettle
    burdock root
    lavender
    horsetail
    moringa
    rosemary

    Ayurveda
    will start back doing scalp pastes using
    amla
    artitha
    brahmi
    will try to be consistent with monthly hennas

    ACV
    will continue cleansing my scalp with ACV before using cleansing cremes

    Coffee
    Ive never tried coffee rinses, but may add into my regimen this year, from what Ive read seems like I can incorporate into ayurvedic scalp pastes and henna to start with.
