mane tail spray.
After the shea sat for a few days it hardened. I melted it down and added a couple tablespoons of ayurvedic infused coconut oil and another tablespoon of hibiscus powder. The mix is easier to work with. My next batch will keep these same proportions, but I think I'll swap out one of the tablespoons of coconut oil for grapeseed's ceramides.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.

This is really interesting. I want to try that the next time I use fenugreek and see if I can get to be that consistency.
Thanks! I’m placing an order with Hennasooq and will definitely be making an Ayurvedic butter@SunkissedLife
My Blends have never whipped up grainy or gritty.
I added my ayurveda powder, a tiny bit of oil and whipped with my electric mixer.
I've used: Argan, EVOO, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Hempseed, Sweet Almond, Emu, Vitamin E, Avocado, Jojoba etc... (sometimes I add glycerin to the blend)
My Blends always whipped out smooth and nice and fluffy.
Nothing was ever grainy or gritty and I've mixed everything from Amla, Bramhi, Kalpi Tone Powder to Chebe Powder and everything in between.
Thanks so much for sharing this video @mzteaze . It is probably the best video I have seen on fenugreek. I just saved it in my YouTube hair care playlist. It's a long process but it definitely has me motivated to try it for sure.
I know you'd like this one a lot @GGsKin. I especially like how she added clays to it to boost it's effects. I am excited for sure to start using my clays now. I still haven't been using them - now I really want to because of this video.

Can you tell me more about your Shea butter and powder infusions? I am in love with using my diy whipped Shea butter for my twists and braids and would love to incorporate Ayurvedic powders but felt like it would make my mix grainy or have to be washed out. It seems like you used it as a deep conditioner so you didn’t leave it in? I didn’t know Shea butter could be a deep conditioner
