    @Lita @shawnyblazes
    Wonder about Curls & Potions fermentation time? And also ST'icals?

    I may ask.:look: But I guess I should read about the product, it may be listed there.

    ETA: Just heard back from Stunna. 3-5 days (on average). They said they got slammed with orders.

    4 months?! Ok now they're putting the Yao women to shame with that one, lol! I was eye balling that deep conditioner but it's hard to fork over that kind of money when I know how dirt cheap it is to ferment my own and get great results. Still I cannot wait to hear your experience with 4 month fermentation. I don't think I could safely ferment it on my own for 4 months though let alone cover that smell. Seems like essential oils wouldn't be enough but the reviews for all of the rice water products look great.

    Ohhh wait you are already using their leave in spray? I just assumed you were making your own when you shared how you used it. Is the rice water in the spray fermented for 4 months too?

    I just made a batch that had fermented a good 48 hours- alright there’s a smell... :look:
    Y’all are some punks :lachen:

    I would say 36 hours is the sweet spot for no smell. :yep:

    Stunna sent my tracking. I’m interested to see how this goes for the next three weeks I’m in kinky twists.

    Quick question: I've had my RW fermenting since Sunday morning in a cupboard. I just took a peek for the first time and there is some sediment in there. Is this to be expected?

    I'm trying to figure out if I should just leave it in there until wash day on the weekend or if I should put it in the fridge until then...or if I should trash it because there shouldn't be any floating bits.

    @snoop
    What type of "sediment"? I usually rinse mine in Hot Water, pour out and then refill with Hot Water and allow to ferment.

    When I remove the funky top on wash day,:eek: there is usually a foamy, cloudy/watery looking mixture which I pour.

    I don't know what type of "sediment" - there could be? But I do rinse it first.

    I rinsed my water twice with luke warm tap water, then filled with the same kind of water and let it soak for about 3 hours. Then strained out the rice and put the water in the jar.

    I've probably had 'similar' but didn't pay too much attention to that. You could always strain it.

    I went to the big Chinese grocery store in my area, but had no luck finding the tea seed powder. The customer service lady had never heard of it before. I did see that they had dried flowers in their tea section, like rose buds, chrysanthemum, etc. It got me thinking about possibly boiling rose buds in the water after fermenting it...next time.

    @NowIAmNappy I'm trying to find your video where you use the soap nuts and the rice water, but no luck. Please point me in the right direction.

    Yeah that was the same thing that happened to me at the Asian market. The lady didn't know what it was and sent me down the aisle with all of the other teas. Of course it wasn't there.

    Since you suggested soap nuts as a substitute I started looking into the ayurvedic cleansers. I ordered shikakai first since it's milder and if I need more I'll get some soap nuts (aritha). I have to play around with the amounts and make sure I can get my hair clean without stripping the life out of it. Once I get it down I plan on mixing it with the rice water.
