    Do you like mixing henna with fenugreek? I was considering it.

    I like mixing henna with other ayurvedic herbs. I never have just henna in my mix. It usually always has amla, brahmi, fenugreek/methi. @mzteaze

    Hydrating my Fenugreek using my kitchen aid mixer today.
    I’ll see if it’s easier than me using my hand whisk

    Lately I've been blending soaked seeds and straining with a nylon. Im enojying the smoother texture and how nicely it thickens up my henna and diy DC. No drips!

    I used NLS's Fenugreek Pre-Poo. I like it.

    I pulled it out to see if I was gone cut my losses and let this Line go completely. You know I never dig into "new" stuff this quickly.

    Still on the Fence with that decision. So far, so good with the Pre-Poo

    Fenugreek is new to me, I found a YouTube video of a how to make it into a mask and now I'm hooked. I was able to finger detangle my hair :yay:

    I was amazed at how 1/4 cup of the powder made so much. I plan to use it every two weeks.

    So, do you follow the recipe to a "T" or did you tweak it somewhat?

    I heard that this herb helps with dandruff due to it's anti fungal properties, and I am always in the hunt for anything that will help my SD. I bought the seeds few days ago online, and I soaked couple table spoons in water mixed with aloe vera gel last night. Today, I used the liquid from this mixture as a scalp treatment. I have not rinsed it yet and I am hoping my scalp gets the hydration and the benefits it needs to stay happy.

    Can someone guide me to how the fenugreek tea rinse is prepared? Is it simply boiling the seeds in water?
