For added cleansing and strengthening add about 3-4 tbsp of powder (per 100 grams of henna or Ayurvedic herbs used) to your recipe. Create your own blend based on what your hair focus is. We recommend equal proportions of every herb you choose to start.
You can also use each of these herbs alone as it’s own treatment. We recommend adding a little bit of conditioner for added slip and easier application in these types of recipes.
Adding brahmi, bhringraj or amla can be used in a henna recipe to tone down the red of the henna. Adding hibiscus powder can boost the red tones of a henna recipe.
For added moisture to your DIY recipe use our Organic Aloe Vera Powder
We recommend you add 5% of your whole recipe of our organic aloe vera powder.
Recommended methods of using this herb:
You can make a hot water infusion with this herb, and other ayurvedic herbs such as shikakai, amla, brahmi, and others of your choice. Steep them for about 3-4 minutes, and then strain. Use the liquid as a hair rinse after you shampoo and/or condition your hair. Rinse it all out really well. This is best used directly in the shower as it can run. You can also leave this in if you wrap it tightly with a shower cap. Leave this in for about 30 minutes to an hour When using your favorite conditioner, you can make an ayurvedic herbal gloss. Apply this all over your hair, by sections and then place a shower cap on, or saran wrap. Leave this on for 30 minutes to an hour.
Prepare this herb as a paste (you can add any other ayurvedic herbs as you’d like), and use it in place of your shampoo. This paste cane be made with a tea brew, or just warm water. You can then wash it out, and then condition (deep, leave in conditioner depending on your hair type) afterwards.
Create an amazing hair oil infusion. You can add 2 parts of your favorite hair oils, to one part of herbs of your choice. Allow to steep naturally for at least 4-5 days or more depending on the herbs you use. Some herbs are tougher, and need more fusion time, such as horsetail. If you’d like to speed it up, and we use this method personally, is use a crock pot to allow the oil and herbs to steep at warm temperature for 24-36 hours. Then turn it off, and allow it to sit for another 24-36 hours. Strain in a nylon stocking. I let this actually hang, and slowly drip for the next 24 hours. The I squeeze what I can out afterwards (from out of the stocking). I then pour the oil infusion into an applicator bottle, or squeeze bottle. Keep this stored in a cool, dark place.
