    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.

    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...

    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

    You're welcome. Rinses are great too and I do those intermittently as well.

    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.

    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

    Green tea
    Marshmallow root
    Chamomile
    Nettle leaf
    Lavender

    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! :)
