  2. Gloopy Goodness 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2016

    Ziziphus Christi is a great colorless alternative to henna. It mixes up foamy and gelatinous. It smells very fresh and green. It takes less time to set than henna and washes out easily. Gives wonderful results on pre-oiled or conditioned hair. Leaves hair soft, bouncy and shiny.

  3. Soft and shiny! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2016

    After reading about the benefits of ZSC, and the rave reviews, I took the plunge and bought some. I didn't follow a particular recipe, just added water from boiled fenugreek seeds to about two heaping tablespoons of the powder, and a small container of baby food bananas The texture of the mixture was thick, bubbly, and mucous-like, and smelled strongly of good-quality tea - which I like. I applied the mixture to my freshly rinsed hair and let it sit for about half an hour. It rinsed out so easily. I noticed immediately how soft, strong, and shiny my hair was. My type-4 ringlets were more defined than usual. think next time I will add slippery elm infused water to my mixture to increase the slip. Henna Sooq was right - a little ZSC goes a long way. I had enough left over to give my husband a treatment. To his portion of the mix, I added a heaping tablespoon of neem powder because he had been complaining of scalp issues. The next day, he remarked that the itchy spot on his scalp had dried up, so he'll be getting weekly conditioning treatments. For the past few months, I have been doing water only hair washes. The ZSC left my hair softer than henna treatments, so I hope I won't get protein overload (and breakage) from weekly conditioning treatments.

  4. Really helps define my 4c curls!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2016

    I was looking for a way to define my 4c curls and it did exactly what I wanted. I read from you tubers and other posts how difficult it was to rinse from your hair, so I added Motions conditioner. It made the recipe very smooth and really defined the really small fuzzy curls on my head. I also used a little aloe vera gel and opti-msm in my solution just to see how my hair would react (I know I'm crazy, but you'll never know if you don't try.) And it turned out great. I had a little left over and decided to freeze for later. I've read that the results are not permanent. My Dickey method wash and go turned out really well and my hair was very soft. Also I would recommend adding a tsp. of glycerin to your recipe, if your hair likes it. I think this help as well.

  5. Impressed 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2016

    I was looking for a way to revive my curls after henna and Zizyphus definitely delivered. My hair felt conditioned and springy. Most of the effect wore off within like three days but my hair does still have a bit more curl than previously. I'd recommend it for those who want rejuvenate their curls.

  6. LOVE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2015

    I love this powder and I cannot go without. It makes my hair super shiny and I find when mixed with shikakai-- is the best cleanser for me. The bars do not work for my hair type. A little goes a long way and plumps up and lathers nicely. LOVE.

  7. Needed to know more before using... 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2015

    Measurement: I bought 200 grams as directed for my length hair (lower back) for treatment. When it arrived I felt the quantity was a bit much, so I prepared 100 grams instead. I sopped my hair until it could not hold any more & I only ended up using 1/4 of the mixture. 3 days later I had to throw it away because the product molded. Not sure if unmixed powder sedr will preserve once the seal is broken.
    Result: I have very healthy natural hair that can sometimes get on the oily side. One of the reviewers of this product claimed it calmed their oil, so I was really excited to use! I decided to do the treatment & wrap my hair up in plastic wrap for an hour. Although my hair felt stronger, it took a lot of my shine away and made it somewhat dry. Purchased the Moroccan Henna recently and haven’t used it yet. Thought I’d give this a try first since it says it gives all the benefits of henna without color, now I’m a little worried I’ll end up with dried out hair that was once healthy .
    I’m sure the product works for many, but unfortunately I did not have enough resources to make it work for me. I highly suggest revising the directions.

    HS Reply: Thank you for your feedback. Those are some great suggestions and uses. For all leftover paste you can freeze it. We'll make those updates and changes to better assist everyone with using our products. When you freeze the zizyphus it can last 4-6 months in your freezer and used again. Just make sure to balance all your treatments with our moisturizing hair oils and Sweet Honey Hair Nourisher.

  8. Brillo to Pillow Head...Amazing!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2015

    New to my natural journey and was so frustrated that my hair literally felt like a Brillo pad. I mean worst than straw, it was so hard to manage and I was on the verge of shaving it all off or going back to a relaxer. Now after one use my hair is as soft as a feathery down pillow. To top it off, my hair no longer feels brittle and on the verge of breaking. It feels so strong. This is something I will definitely keep in stock.

  9. The Most "INTERESTING" Powder I've used so far, that leaves the hair "SUPER STRONG" 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2013

    What can I say....when it comes to hair strength from root to tip with just 1 application, this powder is UNMATCHED. It has a light, fluffy, and soft, but chuncky (not hard) texture that makes the powder very thick and easy to mix. It blends so smoothly alone or with other powders and is definitely another wonderful cleanser, leaving the hair with so much shine, fullness, body and moisture. And did I mention SUPER STRONG? NOTHING ELSE beats this powder when it comes to achieving strong shiny hair. This powder is definitely one of my favorites, and I wont be without it, EVER. It's by far the most Interesting Powder I have used. Simply Amazing. :)

  10. Shiny, clean, healthy hair. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2013

    Zizyphus spina christi is a great addition to an herbal paste or a tea. I usually mix a variety of other herbs together with it, such as brahmi, bhringraj, soapnut powder, amla, hibiscus, etc. I usually make a blend of these herbs in bulk and store them in a jar. Can also be added to a henna mixture.

    Cleans my hair wonderfully, even after an oiling, and leaves it feeling thick and bouncy!
