How long do you let everything steep
it usually just a day but i forgot about this batch it was in the fridge 2 weeks.
Does anyone know of a website where I can buy ayurvedic goodies like powders, oils etc besides amazon and ebay? Preferably for a great price.
Thanks! I never thought to look there.
Thank you! Never heard of the company before.
I'm looking for a place that sells hesh and dabur brand products. Amazon and ebay is a bit pricier than I remember. I usually go to an indian store about an hour from me, but I really can't justify driving all that way for some boxes of powder. I may try the zenia store.
Oh ok, yeah I usually only see Hesh at Indian stores and Amazon. Zenia is a brand. I like their 12 herb herbal henna blend. I used that for my infused oil. That reminds me of the time I had my dad drive like 45min to the only Indian store in the city just for some henna lol. I grabbed vatika just so I didn't walk out with only one thing.
The "cheapest" I've found has been on K.hana Pakana per @Aggie
Fast Shipping. Super Cheap Prices!
What does the salt do for you in your hair and how much do you use?
YESSS!! Exactly what I was looking for! Thank you @IDareT'sHair and @Aggie!!
What does spraying an herbal tea spritz then applying leave in do for the hair . I'm new to this technique
Here's a couple of links that might help you. You will need to do a lot of research and reading on the herbs to determine which ones are best for what your hair needs, ie, strength, moisture, shine, etc...
Hope these threads help you out a little bit @Honeypot.
Oh wow, forgot all about this site. I remember coming across it years ago.
I let the herbs steep on the stove for about an hour, strain, put the liquid in a spray bottle, add some essential oils to it for the scent, and then refrigerate. I also spray the mixture on my hair strands by the way.
As for the oil, I let the powders sit in a mason jar either on my candle warmer for about 2 weeks or in my windowsill for a month to 6 weeks. Strain and add essential oils then add to a squeeze bottle with a nozzle to add to my scalp when ready.
Hope this helps
Thanks I did research already. Doesn't seem like you can go wrong with any Herb. I picked a few I really wanted and could afford . I found more research on rinses then leaving the tea in
I used hibiscus , lavender , nettle leaves , chamomile , and marshmallow root
You're welcome. Rinses are great too and I do those intermittently as well.
I'm simple so rinses are a no for me lol

CURLS DYNASTY LEAVE IN, SEALED WITH SHEA WHIP
Made a tea spritz to use on wash day. Will apply it and leave it in . Then apply my lic and seal . Lets see if stick to this . If not I'll have plenty of tea to drink
Understood but the rinses are the same I use for spraying my hair with. It's already made so I just pour it on my hair and scalp in the shower and leave it in, especially if I feel I'm not using it up fast enough before it goes rancid.
I know they are the same . I'll just spray mine on out the shower.
Scratch the hibiscus tea. I don't like all that red every where even though it's easy to clean. New tea I'm testing will be
I think marshmallow root is going to be a game changer
Salt was the only thing that made my hair feel soft again after a Henna tx left me with straw hair. Once I tried it, I was hooked and used it weekly in my moisturizing DC mix. I don't measure but I use about 1.5 tsp - 2 tbsp depending on what I feel my hair needs for the week. I like it best mixed with a very thick condish base like Queen Helen cholesterol. HTH!
