Just mixed some of my conditioner combo with brahmi, amla, henna, kalpi tone, and bhringraj powders, 2 ounces of Bhringraj oil, in a jar and letting it sit to use up as a conditioner.

I also just put some nettle, black tea, Belle Bar green tea, hibiscus tea, and rose hips on the stove brewing for next the next week's herbal tea rinse. I used up the rest of the last batch this morning.

@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..

Happy Hair Growing!
Thank you for your suggestion!!! My hair came out perfect :grin:
I mixed ACV with water and essential oils (rosemary, peppermint, and tea tree). I focused on my scalp then poured the mix down the length of my hair. Afterwards, I poured on a mix of warmed coconut milk, AVJ, honey, CO and essential oils (lavender, tea tree, rosemary and eucalyptus) on each section.

My hair came out strong, soft, defined and smells like lavender :grin:

I have a quick question for those who use ayurvedic powders. What do you do with the left over powder after making teas or oil infusions? I was wondering if I could get more uses out of them instead of throwing them away?
I throw mine away. I have a ton of powders in my stash and wish to use them up before they expire but you could actually put them in your cowash or deep conditioner and use them up again that way if you wish.

Ditto what the other ladies said. I also reuse it to make more oils or tea before adding it to conditioner. I put it into a bag and freeze or put in the fridge in between each use.

You could also make a paste out of it and use it up that way.

Oh wow, I never considered expiration dates. Would still work the same after their expiration dates? I always thought since it was dried powder they would be good even after the date on the box...

Yes but bare in mind, they are still plants, even though they are dry. They typically have a shelf life of 3 years from the packaging date. As for efficacy, I highly doubt it after this time. Unrefined Shea butter and other butters all come from plants and they also expire and after that, they greatly lose their ability to condition the hair.

I made a strong ayurvedic tea some time ago and put it in the freezer. I used to take a few cubes and put them in a spray bottle as needed, but since I do weekly tea rinses I already have tea for my spray bottle on hand.

I took the cubes that were left and melted them down and mixed with two packets of knox gelatin. Poured the mix into cubes and put in the freezer. Back in 2016 I used to treat my hair weekly with a henna gelatin to strengthen my transitioning hair. Now I'll use it to maintain my relaxed hair. I use them alone or take a couple and mix with conditioner.
