    @Lita
    Imma hafta' find a different way to use Curls & Potions Rice Water and Bamboo Rinse.:look:

    I tried to use it like I use ST'icals Follicle Booster (after rinsing out DC'er - before Final R/O) under plastic cap for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing and using a final rinse-out.

    The Curls and Potions Rice Water and Bamboo seemed like it stripped off my DC'er and my hair felt hard, dry and tangly.:mad:

    Soultanicals Follicle Booster leaves my hair feeling good. Silky & Manageable upon rinsing and before Final R/O.:love:

    Curls & Potions did feel a little better upon rinsing, but not much. It wasn't until after I used my Final R/O (Creme Rinse) that my hair actually felt "better".

    I had a really good DC'ing Session too, but felt all of that "goodness" was negated by the RW/Bamboo Rinse.

    Next time, I will use Curls & Potions Rice Water/Bamboo Rinse as a Strengthening Treatment (before DC'ing).

    So next wash day, I will use it after cleansing and before DC'ing/Steaming and see how it works that way.

    If you have it or used it, please let me know how you are using it? It also said it can be used as a L-I, but I want to use the Chebe one for that.

    @IDareT'sHair ^^^For the bamboo rice water,that one is better if you use it as a pre poo or after you wash your hair,apply it to roots only & put your Dc on top,it works well that way..The Chebe one,I leave it in on my scalp and but my moisturizer cream on the length,so far I haven’t had any problems using it that way....
    Bamboo is a strengthening/like protein so it’s best to put conditioner on top/proceed to rinse..You still have the same effect..

    *The Soultinacls Rice Water,I use as my final rinse under a heat cap with no problems..

    Happy Hair Growing!

    Certainly @Lita. That is the one I am most interested in since my hair loves and behaves well with bamboo anything. I have a bamboo shampoo, deep treatment, and scalp drops so I may as well add some Rice water rinse to complete it.

    @IDareT'sHair

    If I remember correctly, on the C&P site, they recommend rice water after shampooing, then use the deep conditioner right on top of the rice water without rinsing it out, leave on for the recommend deep conditioning time of 20-30 minutes, then rinse both out at the same time. Then proceed to styling as usual, leave-in, moisturizer, etc...

    @Lita is right, Bamboo acts like a protein so you should be mindful of this when using it.

    Agreed.:yep:

    Will use it next wash day as a Strengthening Treatment.

    It says "Strengthening Treatment" on the Bottle DUHHHHHH:wallbash:

    So, that means, I'll still be purchasing ST'icals RW Follicle Booster.:twocents:

    SheaBiscus butter: 1/2 cup shea butter, 1 tablespoon hibiscus powder. Infused for 24 hours.

    Inspired by the treatment made popular by FusionofCultures on YouTube. I wanted to try infusing shea butter directly rather than mixing with an infused oil. I was also looking forward to using pink shea, but the hibiscus powder I have is more of a muted brick shade. It is a very fine powder so rather than leaving most of it to settle on the bottom I actually mixed everything together. I didn't add any oils since I wanted to see if my hair responds well to plain shea.

    OT: Naturelle Grow has a Bamboo & Silk DC'er that's suppose to be really good too. I have it, but have not used it (yet).

    Nice Experiment!:love:

    I have made Shea Butter with Rose Powder, Hibiscus Powder (and other Ayurvedic Powders i.e. Amla, Bramhi etc..), but always used an Oil with my Blends.

    Please report back and let us know how your Blend is working for you.:love2:

    This is a great conditioner @Lita. I like it a lot but since I can find a Bamboo deep conditioner on the ground, I won't be repurchasing it. I do however will always purchase her Pink Rose Clay conditioner as long as she sells it. I need to re-up on them during her next sale.

    I used both BM Grease and my premixed Shea butter blend to seal in my herbal tea rinse tonight.

    I still have about 3 lbs of shea butter to use up and most likely will be making my new SB purchase from www.3cayg.com when I run very low.

    This was even better than the BM grease by itself. I think this will be my heavy sealant combo moving forward. I really like how my hair felt.

    Earlier today, I washed my hair with Kerastase Therapiste Shampoo, henna'ed, and Deep conditioned with Natur Growth CayenaWood DC and NG Pink Rose Clay DC.

    Tonight I massaged some bamboo drops on my scalp. used Redken Extreme Anti Snap leave-in mixed with IN Aloe and Hibiscus leave-in, sealed with my diy SB blend and BM Grease.

    Never did start this. :look: Going to start it now and push wash day back to Thursday. I normally like my rice water to ferment for 7-10 days. I think I’ll just start 2 batches tonight so the next one will be ready for wash day next week.

    I DC'd yesterday with a mix of coconut milk+honey+olive oil+glycerin and essential oils. I left it on, rinsed, detangled and my hair came out as a giant poof :nono:.
    I know that glycerin was the culprit, because I've done coconut masks multiple times and my hair has only come out great! I'm going to do coconut milk again in the next day or too, but I need to figure out if I should do a vinegar wash before.

    What do y'all think?

    @ckisland Hi! I think you should try the ACV rinse,it should help remove the residue from your hair especially that glycerin...

    •Keep us posted with your results..

    All cornrowed and wigged up!

    Mixed up my shikakai/neem/amla cleanser with peppemint castile soap and lemon EO. I love the tingle and smell.

    I’m also going to restart using my Megatek and bhringraj/nettle root/horestail oil scalp tx. I dropped the sulfur from the mix and just discarded the two bottles of sulfur powder that I had under the sink. I just don’t feel like the “benefits” outweigh the stink. It stinks up my drains too. And no amount of EOs in the mix could cover the smell.

    I still have my brahmi/henna/hibiscus conditioner for cowashing and leave in.

    I love being able to mix my own products and cheaply. All of my cleansing and conditioning mixes are made with Suave Tropical Coconut condish as a base. It feels good to return to my staples. I feel less stress about trying to figure out which products to use for most of my regi.

    I wish it was in a spray bottle instead of applicator. I can see myself using too much . I plan on every three days or so.

    You don't have a empty spray bottle somewhere? XCel has a good spray bottle. Also APB's Spray Bottles are great for reuse!:eek:...:lachen:

    @shawnyblazes Yes,I agree with @IDareT'sHair I put it in a really good spray bottle because it does have chebe particles in it and you don’t want the bottle to clog...The spray bottle is sooooo much easier to use..

    Did a rice water/ bamboo tea rinse a few minutes ago. Added neutral protein filler and bamboo extract then topped with burdock root DC.

    I usually do the rinse after I do my protein treatment and DC but I’m being lazy. I’ll still use a moisturizing DC as usual.
