    I used my DIY tea this morning. My hair is in 7 fat twists - I sprayed scalp and hair followed by massage, applied KCKT, and sealed with a butter. My ends are in a bun. I plan on doing this daily unless I plan on styling my hair.

    This weekend I will do a gloss treatment.

    Does anyone know:

    Can the teas be left in, or must/best they be rinsed out?

    The teas can be left in. She refreshes her hair with the tea.

    Thanks. That's what I thought. I had just finished reading something about them being tea RINSES, and I just wanted to make sure that did not mean they were BEST rinsed out. :smile: I'm thinking through what my personalized version of her regimen will be, and I don't think I'm going to use a leave-in as they tend to prevent gel crunch for me -- which I need to help combat tangling.

    Thus I was hoping to use the teas as a liquid leave-in of sorts.

    I just wouldn't be liberal with the henna in the tea rinse, since it's like protein.

    She leaves the tea in, and so do I.

    The tea, especially the strengthening tea can be left in but with a creamy moisturizer over it to prevent the hair from getting hard from protein buildup.

    From her latest regimen ..
    I believe she leaves the rinse in. On non wash days she uses a leave in conditioner and on wash days after shampoo she uses the rinse leaves it on for ~ 5 min then applies deep (moisturizing) conditioner on top.

    Since this new-to-me Indian store was close to DS's school, I stopped by.

    I left with 100 grams of each of the following, for an average cost of $1.85.

    Amla
    Brahmi
    Rose petal powder
    Shikakai

    I'm thinking I might try a mask today. I'm just so curious about how my hair will feel with use of it.

    Off to try and determine which mask is (said to be) super moisturizing yet strengthening.

    I hope the quality is good.

    From Amazon I ordered stuff I've been wanting to try for years:
    1. aloe Vera powder
    2. hibiscus flower powder
    3. marshmallow leaf and root tea
    4. slippery elm bark powder tea
    5. guava, strawberry, apple, and lemongrass loose leaf tea
    Each item was between about $8 and $12.

    In one of her videos, CurlyProverbz said she uses traditional shampoo and conditioner every now and then to give her hair _____ (either a break, variety, or something; can't remember her exact wording).

    I think I might do something like that once I start trialing her recipes/products. I might use tradition traditional products on week 1 of the month and CurlyProverbz recipes/products during weeks 2, 3, and 4 of the month. This would facilitate monthly chelating.

    I like that idea. Currently, I'm just incorporating recipes into my weekly regimen.

    Hmm, I understand your frustration but I know that packages from all over areas that have had storms, hurricanes, flooding, power outages in pockets of locations are taking a little longer to get to their destination. I'm not going to sweat it right now because I understand why there may be delays. Sorry that you are unhappy with your experience with them though.

    From CurlyProverbz's Belle Bar site content: https://bellebarorganic.com/pages/directions

    DIRECTIONS
    HOW DO I USE MY PRODUCT?

    IT'S SUPER EASY. SCOOP, MIX & APPLY.

    The most important thing is to not get water in the product container. We don't use any preservatives so water will breed bacteria and make your product unsafe.

    We also want to add that as with any beauty product results vary from person to person. Results also vary based on how much product you use and what u decide to mix your product with. But that is the fun part, you get some control over the results you are looking for and if it didn't work for you one way, try it a completely different way!

    Hair Masks - Add 1-3 teaspoons of mask powder to conditioner or blended FRESH INGREDIENTS (see below). Don't use just water otherwise mixture will be too thin and will not be as effective. Whip mixture with a fork or whisk until smooth. Apply liberally to freshly washed hair, cover with a shower cap for at least an hour, and then rinse thoroughly with cool water. The longer you leave it on, typically the better the results. Wash once or twice with conditioner after, to make sure all ingredients are out of your hair.

    Tea Rinses- After shampooing, slowly rinse your hair with the tea (you can even use a spray bottle, if you prefer). Follow with a deep conditioner as tea can often have drying properties.

    Method #1 – Pour some boiling water over two cups of fresh herbs or 2-4 tea bags and let it steep overnight or for a few hours. Strain the liquid into a bowl or container and apply it on your hair.

    Method #2 – Place the herbs or tea bags in a pot with water, bring to a boil for 2 – 5 minutes or until the desired color has been reached. Once this has happened, let the liquid cool down, strain it, place it in a container and apply on your hair.

    “ACTIVATE” YOUR FACE OR HAIR MASK BY ADDING 1 OR 2 OF OUR RECOMMENDED ORGANIC FRESH INGREDIENTS.

    FRESH INGREDIENTS FOR HAIR

    AVOCADO
    The natural oils and nutrients of avocado make it a great treatment for dry, damaged and frizzy hair.

    BANANA*
    Strengthens hair, minimizes breakage by restoring your hair’s natural elasticity, and facilitates repair of damaged hair. Banana has been known to be used to try to elongate hair.

    MILK ( COCONUT, GOAT, BUTTERMILK)
    Very good for repairing hair; deeply conditions, nourishes, strengthens and softens hair.

    YOGURT
    Acts as a gentle exfoliator on skin. Softens hair, helps get rid of extra build-up and oils. Conditions hair

    PUMPKIN
    Restore shine and moisture to dry and damaged strands.

    SULFATE FREE CONDITIONER
    Sulfates are cheap chemicals added to shampoos and conditioners to strip hair “clean”, they are harsh on the hair and skin and sometimes cause more damage than good.

    HONEY
    A natural humectant, honey attracts moisture. It’s also full of antioxidants and nutrients to feed hair follicles that house the live part of hair, encouraging hair growth.

    GHEE
    Hair treatment for coarse dry hair including split ends.

    MAYO

    Moisturizes hair, stops breakage and restores ph balance to the scalp.

    The more I research the reported scientific EFFECTS of the ingredients of the masks, oil, and teas, the more I'm thinking that root and scalp strengthening/care via the masks needs to be my priority.

    Right behind that in priority for me, I think, is ends strengthening/care. I will be trialing the Jakeala Shiloh Hair balm (containing Shea butter, beeswax, and all sorts of ayurvedic ingredients).

    Then I think it's the teas.

    Then I think it's the oil, in particular scalp massaging it in.

    This morning I massaged my CP growth oil in my scalp after rinsing out my prepoo.

    I then added her henna gloss treatment on my hair and will be leaving it in for 30 minutes, cowash with Rusk Deep Shine Smoothing Conditioner, SSI Marula Mallow Leave-in, Bun and I'm out of the house for a few hours.

    Pre-pooing with CP oil and random conditioner concoction. Going to henna gloss after shampoo, then condition. I'm going to steam everything in today. I read in another thread about steaming henna into the hair. I will report back.

    I find this all so interesting. I want to incorporate some some of the oils and teas into my regimen. I just need to figure out the best way to do it.

    Hi, all!

    I'm slowly but surely navigating my way through the extensive and overlapping collection of YouTube videos.

    Would you all agree that as of today, the list below is a complete list of the DIY products on her YouTube channel? TIA. Also, in your opinion, what is the purpose or what are the USES of each product (aside from the detanglers)? For example, there are various masks. Some are designed to strengthen, cleanse, and promote growth all in one mask (thus for the latter use/effect call for scalp application). TIA for any and all input.

    Detanglers
    Teas
    Glosses
    Masks
    Oil mixes
    Butter creams

    I agree with this list. I think the plethora of mixes is to address individual needs at different times of the growth process. We all should tweak each recipe as needed. I think CurlyProverbs changed each recipe per her own needs and the requests of her followers.

    I think the teas are great as a final rinse or to enhance your DC by spraying hair before DC.
    Oil mixes are for scalp maintenance and various sealing methods.
    Glosses/Masks are once/month treatments.
    Butter creams for heavy sealing.

    I think all of us will use a variety of these wonderful concoctions, but may not be enthused with all of them. For example, butter creams (shea) are not my friends due to my high porosity hair. I'm working on addressing this issue, but until then no creams for me.

    My gloss was not creamy enough. My hair felt overly moisturized. I typically wear a WNG but did a twist out with the new Mielle Organic products. I will wear it in twists for the remaining of the week. I also need a trim. I will post before pictures after trim and offficially start measuring. No henna for me so I also need to order cassia.

    Today I will try a henna (cassia) mix suggested by Henna Sooq. It will simply be henna, hibiscus and melted cocoa butter. I normally treat my henna mixes (generally glosses) as a prepoo step, then poo, tea & conditioner.

    I'm brewing my tea now.
