    When I say "hydrated" fenugreek, I mean I hydrate powdered fenugreek over a 12 hour period just like demonstrated in the video I linked. Normally, I made 1-2 batches and freeze them in cute silicone molds for single use.

    When its time to make the mask, I defrost a fenugreek bar and mix with aloe vera gel (buy by the gallon, it's cheaper) and bhringraj powder.

    Well I finally strained my fenugreek oil today that was infusing for 5 weeks. It is pretty green and potent from the aloe and moringa powders in it. The Fenugreek is really strong too. I already added some essential oils to it to mask the fenugreek scent. Don't want to walk around smelling like curry or maple syrup :giggle:.

    To me it goes in between smelling like maple syrup and celery. My hair still smells like celery 3 days later lol. Overpowered everything else I used on wash day.

    I've never even heard anyone say it left a celery scent on them. That's funny :lol:.

    Used my diy Fenugreek Tea Rinse and oil on my hair scalp and hair tonight. I finished the tea and have to make another batch this coming weekend.

    The seeds from the first batch, I think I will make a hydrating fenugreek mask for my hair and scalp a little later.

    The seeds are in the freezer right now but maybe I'll start to make the mask by this coming Friday.

    Used some of my diy Fenugreeek oil on scalp and I used up a bottle of IN Aloe & Hibiscus Leave-in tonight as my cream moisturizer for tonight.

    No backups left of the latter and probably not a repurchase either. I liked it but don't actually NEED it.

    I also made some hydrated fenugreek mask tonight from the same seeds I used to make my Fenugreek Tea Rinse.

    I had the seeds in the freezer to make certain they won't spoil on me. I should be able to freeze the mask maybe tomorrow night and use it up mixed with other herbs and deep conditioners as needed.

    I just made some more Fenugreek Tea Rinse using AVJ and water in a 1:1 ratio. I will let it sit overnight to allow it to release it's goodness before using.

    Tomorrow I will be adding some essential oils, vitamin C and MSM to it once I've strained it and transferring it to my spray bottle. I usually saturate my scalp and hair with it about 3 days a week. I really love this rinse so much.

    ETA:
    I keep it in the fridge to avoid spoiling.
