Brahmi is an herb that grows in India. It is used in both ancient chinese, and ayurvedic medicine.
Brahmi is used for:
We recommend you store this herb and all ayurvedic herbs in a cool dark place, or your freezer.
This herb comes packages by 100 gram packages.
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.

I want to thank Henna Sooq for such wonderful products, and especially the suggested uses and recipes included in my order. I am beyond amazed by the results I achieved this week combining Shikakai, Brahmi, Red Raj, and Organic Aloe Vera powders in an herbal gloss treatment (my first multi-herb concoction!). *I say “amazed” about a hundred times in this review!*
My “recipe”: 2 tbsp each of Shikakai, Brahmi, and Red Raj, and 1 tbsp of the Aloe Vera. I made a watery paste using peach herbal tea, and then added several squirts of apricot kernel oil and an unknown amount of Herbal Essences conditioner for color treated hair. I didn’t measure the conditioner; I just squeezed it into the mixture until the paste thickened up. I was afraid of my gray hairs becoming bright Bozo red, so I only let the mixture sit in a covered container for about an hour in the warm laundry room. Using my fingers (well covered in the purple nitrile gloves), I applied the gloss to my hair in four sections, making smaller partings with my fingers as I went along. I two-strand twisted each of the four sections after applying the gloss.
After the twists were done, I wrapped my hair in clear plastic wrap, a clear shower cap, and finally an old t-shirt. The mixture sat in my hair for a little over 4 hours. It rinsed very quickly in the shower without a lot of color splatter that I’m used to from past henna sessions. I applied a generous amount of Garnier Fructis leave-in conditioner, a bit more apricot kernel oil, and several pumps of Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion, then combed it all through. I set my hair on large rollers and sat under a hooded dryer for exactly 1 hour. *I’m explaining all of this for a reason!* I removed the hair rollers and began to blow dry my hair, which was still slightly damp at the roots. I was trying to get my roots as smooth as possible. Lastly, I flat ironed my hair and trimmed the ends.
The first thing I noticed when I was done styling my hair was that the gloss didn’t really cover my gray hair which is sprinkled along my hairline in front and down the middle of my head. They looked slightly blondish, but that was it. My hair already had a burgundy red rinse in from 2 months ago and didn’t look much different overall, i.e. no bright red highlights. I only used 2 tbsp of the Red Raj and perhaps combining it with the Brahmi darkened the color considerably, too. However, today two days later, the red highlights are much, much brighter.
HOWEVER, the most important result was that my scalp is not dry and flaky. *Amazement* I have had MAJOR dry scalp problems from the time I was a child. I’ve used medicated shampoos, specialty “natural” shampoos, and I’ve also hennaed many times before, but NOTHING has ever banished my dry scalp (dry scalp, dandruff, eczema, psoriasis, who knows?) until now. After I wash or condition my hair, every time while my scalp is still damp you can see flaky skin. ALWAYS. But not after this treatment! I parted and sectioned my hair and couldn’t find ONE flake anywhere! I did not grease my scalp. I applied the products just as described and haven’t added any more oil or other product to my hair since Wednesday evening. This is especially amazing to me because after sitting under a hot dryer for an hour, my scalp has ALWAYS been tight, itchy, and flaky. I parted my hair and checked again yesterday and today and my scalp is CLEAN and CLEAR. I honestly feel like crying. I have had so much embarrassment from this flaky, itchy scalp all my life (40 years) and to think this combination worked so well, so quickly and by using such a small amount of product, just makes my heart sing.
I will definitely continue purchasing these herbs from Henna Sooq. I feel like I found a magic potion! I’m going to apply more mixture this weekend. I popped my container in the freezer as recommended in the instructions. I hope that I’ll find a recipe to use on my face, which stays dry and flaky too. I love Henna Sooq!

The Brahmi came in a zip locked bag which I REALLY liked because I don't have to transfer it; it did wonders for my hair in terms of silkiness and shine--I used it with aloe vera, honey, and coconut milk. My only complaint is that the powder smelled terrible however I'm sure that's just the natural odor of Brahmi. Once you put on a cap or conditioning cover its okay and the smell is hardly detectable, it powder itself was very nicely sifted and mixes well with everything I've tried.

I have afro-textured lightly processed hair, or in other words, one of the most fragile hair conditions on the planet, necessitating hair strengthening products.
This is certainly a hair strengthener. For hair like mine I do recommend making this a paste and adding a favorite conditioner to the mix - then sealing your ends with one of henna Sooqs essential oils. You should be able to feel the added strength after rinsing.
Be careful not to detangle too much while the Brahmi paste is in your hair, that strengthening process makes it feel a bit hard and tough to get through. Just let it sit there on previously detangled hair or detangle after rinsing or you could seriously harm the oldest hair on your head (yours ends).
It rinsed out of my hair easier than henna and was very easy to clean up afterwards ( didn't stain anything and is not a dye). Expect to have to clean out your shower or tub after rinsing the mix.
I had some serious build up and dandruff on my scalp before the application, I'm all clarified now. If I were to do it again I would work it into my scalp much better than I did the first time. I noticed that my hair held a somehow darker healthier hue than before using the brahmi powder mix.

Thank you for this great herbal powder. I have been using Brahmi for several years to great effect, and Henna Sooq offers a quality version of this magical Ayurvedic herb.

Never used powders before this and was pretty scared to try, especially after I made my first mix with this powder, hot chamomile tea, organic aloe vera powder from HennaSooq, a bit of honey and a few drops of lavender oil. It looked very muddy and very messy, and to be honest it was an extremely messy process applying it to my hair. Took me about 30 minutes (I have waist-long hair), and I did use up a good amount of the powders for this. Put it up in a twist on top of my head, put a plastic cap over it and then a heated wrap over the cap... and walked around for about 3 hours (all I could take as it kept dripping down my face and the back of my neck).
I was petrified as I stepped in the shower, thought it would never come off. I was SO wrong, washing it out wasn't nearly as difficult as some other treatments I'd had in my hair the years before. I conditioned a couple of times, that helped get the last of it out... and as I dried my hair, I noticed how silky and strong it felt! My scalp felt very clean and comfortable, more so than with ANY shampoo I'd ever used.
Here I am now reviewing this powder the day after. My hair is dry and feels very full, LOTS of volume, soft, just incredible in every way. I promised myself I'll never use regular shampoos again... this stuff is just too wonderful! Thanks HennaSooq!!!

This made my very dark brown(almost black) hair turn black and shiny , only for a few days but still worth it. It also made my hair feel strong. I have used this in combination with amla, bhringraj , and alone .

I noticed after my first use of this Brahmi Powder that my scalp was in even better condition than before, my hair was very shiny and darker in color, although I did not color my hair. my roots were also much stronger due to the fact that I had alot less hair fall/shedding from my scalp. I'm so impressed to be getting the benefits that I'm getting after just a one time use with Henna Sooq's Powders. I plan to purchase and try many more products in the future as all the powders I've purchased are all staples of mine forever. I can't wait to see the wonderful benefits I get with this powder with continued use. :) and what I love most about shopping with Henna Sooq is that all the Organic Powders are from India.... so its always fresh and always the BEST.
