    I’m so mad. I just realized that the Kaleidoscope miracle drops is basically fancy liquid grease. I’m usually on it when it comes ingredients in products, but this time I was slipping on my pimpin’ :cry3::lachen:

    So often I start on the path to using the right products and seeing improvement in my hair only to try something new and never make my way back. I am going to at least post a random note of what's working.

    I have been researching Ayurveda and hair care and will start documenting what I am using and if it works. I started using pachai payaru for hair growth. The antioxidants and vitamins within it are said to help to improve blood circulation, seal in moisture, and improve hair strength. I just grind it into a powder and creating a paste with it using green tea and almond oil. So far my hair feels stronger and my hair hasn’t looked as dull as it use to but I’ve only tried in twice this month.

    So far the Amla and Olive cream is really moisturizing the back of my hair! I reach back and feel the ringlets. I can apply to the back and the residue from applying to the back can be used in the front..... hmmmmm.....

    This is also known as "moong dal" or "green gram". It is indeed very nutritious and I've seen a couple Indian YTers use this for cleasing hair or for like a "protein treatment"
    Its very moisturizing, its common in making non soap cleansers, especially for babies.

    I was thinking of using the flour as my hair cleasnser alternating with my current besan aka chickpea flour.

    Thanks for the review! I may pick some up from the shop this weekend :rose::rose:

    At this point I just want healthy and easily manageable collar bone length relaxed hair. Can't even manage that. Smh.

    You CAN do it. You just gotta find what works, love it, and leave it alone.

    I ironed my hair yesterday with the comb chase and wow it was sleek and perfect. Then today it rained all day and it was humid in my job, so of course it reverted a bit around the edges and at the roots. Sometimes I hate the weather here

    Yesss!!!
    I'm at work trying not to stare down a pair of scissors. It's 3am. Ain't no one around. I could just go to the bathroom, and BAM, come out with a fade. I'm so tempted :look:

    The flour sounds like it would be much easier to use regularly! I'm going to try that too! Thanks for the additional information.

    I bought a bunch of these last year and in 2018 with the intent of using them instead of just plain bunning.

    Have either of you ladies baggied underneath? That's what I've been thinking about doing. In the old days, I remember ladies posting a lot about baggying under a phony pony or wrapped/tucked bun.

    I tried something like that years ago, I wasn't a fan. I just moisturize and seal as needed under any weave/wig, ect.
