I will be sharing more of my herbal and henna mix with you guys. I have so many different experiment mixture. I have tested out that gave me good results.
Here is one I did this week, it consist of Fenugreek, Amla Powder & Henna.
My first ingredient below is 1 1/2 tablespoon of Fenugreek Powder (pic. on the left). I love this powder so much, it can be used to cleanse the hair and scalp, it is meant to help promote hair growth. One of my other love for his powder is that it can be used to stretch the volume of your henna or herbal hair mixture. So in fact you can use less of your other herbal powders and get the same benfits all round.
(Pic. on the right) I added 1 1/2 tablespoon of Amla Powder, I love Amla Powder so much, this is one of the first when I discovered ayurvedic hair care. This powder has so much to offer in both hair care as well as skin care.
Final batch of ingredients in the (pic below), the last ingredient added was 2x50g of Neha Herbal Henna. It is my first time using this henna, I bought too packet on my last visit to ‘Green Street Indian Market’. Love that market it any girl market if you are into ayurvedic hair care, it is cheap and and you are spoilt for the choice of henna, herbal hair powders and Indian hair care conditioners.
So to recap the ingredients in the glass dish about are 1 1/2 tablespoon of Fenugreek, 1 1/2 tablespoon of Amla Powder and 2x 50g of Neha Henna Herbal Powder.
I then began mixing in 1 cup of cooled down boiled water gradually, in the end I end up using two cups of water to get a nice smooth batter consistency.
I then covered my mixture and let it sit until the next day.
Here is the part I made a mistake, well I just forgot to take a pic of the final mixture LOL sorry and then it got worst, I did not even took pic of the product in my hair. I got so caught up in doing my hair and completely forgot that I was going to blog about it.
Anyways after all the fact I then remember and I took a few picture after I washed the powder mixture out and blot dry my hair…., go figure :rolleyes: L@@k at my texture popping, lward I am so excited and enjoying my transitioning. I am excited and nervous all at the same time to meet my texture. Not that I forgot it was like as I was not allowed to get a relaxer until I was about 16-17yrs old. But still, I know I have a lot to learn about my texture, taking care of my hair and finding out which products may still and may not work for my natural texture once I am completely natural.
I had to deal with the ‘Haunt of BCing’ too early lol. I am sure you remember my last post, well BC was still haunting me. I just could not rid the urge to get rid of the telaxed ends. So guest what I did, I went ahead and did a little cutting//BC some hair off and it WORKED! It helped to quench the desire to axed it all off before my 24 months mark.
Not only did it help with the haunt of BC early, but it made a huge difference in detangling, combing my hair and doing any form of styling, well the main style for me at the moment is twisting my hair after wash day.
Hope you enjoy this little blogging, apologies for lack of pictures, will do a lot better from here on out :).
