Fall 2016 batch
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.

Brahmi is the ALL round herb!
Posted by Denise D. on 18th Dec 2017
I have use a Brahmi infused oil blend with coconut and jojoba oils to place on my scalp and as a massage oil, thus resulting in thicker hair. I've also used Brahmi as a part of my DIY DC conditioning treatment which have left my hair feeling"strong". I've used Brahmi with aloe vera juice, peppermint and rosemary oils, raw, organic Shea butter all mixed together and set on my air for about an hour. The results were unbelievably soft, strong hair with a defined curl pattern and clumping of my natural hair. It is a reason why I don't want to be without the product because of its benefits to my hair which has been positive. I have seen little to no shedding since using this product. I would recommend persons to incorporate at least one or two Ayurveda herbs/oil into their hair regime, natural or permed, and see the remarkable difference natural herbs and oils can make to ones hair!
I love it!!

I've used this to help with my dandruff along with amla, fenugreek powder, tea tree and rosemary essential oils in Jojoba oil. It has helped me so much. In the future I want to use this to darken my hair again. I know this still has to be mixed with something else to cling to the hair strands. But for the scalp, I love it.
Brahmi and Neem Powders

I am absolutely in love with this powder. I used this powder twice since i purchased it. I have noticed less hair shedding and my hair feels extremely strong and looks healthy and shiny. I combined this herb with my other favorite powder, Neem. The results were simply amazing. I am soooo glad i found this website. Thank you Henna Sooq!
can hardly wait!

The little bit I added to my indigo/henna mix has already shown a difference with less breakage while combing it out after the treatment. I also added aloe vera gel and this, too seems to make a difference, with much less hair in my comb...looking forward to making an infusion and using it after every shampoo..

Brahmi is an excellent treatment mixed with Amla powder. I mixed the herbs with a can of coconut milk and my hair was left feeling strong, very soft and manageable. Thank you Henna Sooq for such high quality products!

This product is incredible, and was the beginning for me to invest in beautiful hair products. I love everything about this and the scent is somewhat refreshing, did not bother me at all. The scent actually smelled clean and wholesome. Red Rajh allowed my hair to become what I have needed to see and enjoy, still critiquing it, and getting used to the different natural products. I love the color and the texture. I still need temple growth and was wondering if anyone has a solution to this. Overall, my hair is Natural and more Beautiful than it has ever been and I am embracing all of this beauty. Thank you all for all of your beautiful products.
Great product for scalp conditions!

I have been using this product for about 2 weeks and I see such an improvement in my scalp condition. I mix brahmi with amla powder then add water and a teaspoon of organic virgin coconut oil. I part my hair and apply the paste to my problem areas on my scalp first then I apply it to my hair. I leave it on for 30 min to an hour then I rinse well and proceed to cleanse my hair with the Mad Moisture shampoo bar followed by a generous deep condition. My scalp feels very refreshed! I love this!!

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!

I love this product, so relaxing as a hot treatment. Hair has never been shinier.
