My hair has been going through changes - I believe mostly due yo aging as it began when i turned 39 (i'm now 40). I have thick, curly, waistlenghth, 3b/c and 4a textured hair and began to experience severe dryness, frizzing, shedding, and breakage. In addition, my curl pattern greatly relaxed and became more of a loose wave. I have not colored or chemically treated my hair in 20 years. I was at a loss as deep conditioning wasn't really working because my hair would not retain moisture, and styling products were no longer affective. I began researching and learned about ayurvedic herbs for hair care. I knew about henna - but was unaware of all the other herbs available. I did not try henna because I did not want to affect my natural hair color - dark brown with red undertones. I learned Cassia could provide the same conditioning benefits without the color. I also found out that all a could help restore curl pattern, so I thought I'd try both. All on all, I purchased amla (powder and oil), cassia, hibiscus, and aloe Vera powders from Henna Sooq. The quality is wonderful. Powders are finely ground and fresh. I also ordered fenugreek and marshmellow root powders from an alternate supplier to include in my first hair mask. I mixed all the powders together and added warm honey water and lavender essential oil to create a brownie mix-like consistency. The fenugreek, aloe vera, and marshmallow root added a great deal of slip which not only made application and rinsing very easy, but provided a tremendous amount of moisture.
My hair improved dramically after the very first use. It was soft, moisturized (and retained moisture long afterwards), manageable, strong, almost completely frizz free, and most of my curl bounced back. I did a second application two weeks later and my results were even better. My hair has never looked or felt this good - even when it was "healthy". I did not experience any dryness at all with this mixture. I'm extremely pleased and will continue to use this treatment and purchase my powders from Henna Sooq. The quality of the product makes the cost insignificant.
I also just began creating ayurvedic powder infusions for a hair / scalp oil treatment to be used twice a week and a water-based sprtitz that I will use daily as a leave-in conditioner. The amla oil that I purchased is also good - moisturizing, absorbs easily, and not too heavy.
I'm so glad I ventured on this journey. Thank You.
I haven't had it long enough to experience its growth properties, but I CAN attest to the absorption and the softness of my 4c hair. It also mixes well will my other oils such as the coconut and avocado oil. The shine factor is one of the best I've experienced with any oil ever too!
I’ve only been using this product for a few weeks and I wanted to wait until I could see the results before I gave a review. My hair has regained its moisture, my hair has stopped shedding, and my edges are no longer thin. This product really works and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to strengthen, moisturize, and regrow their hair.
It really softens the hair shaft.
I add it to my rhassoul clay shampoo mixture and to my damp hair before twist ups. I love the softness and shine if gives my hair but best of all, it is mineral oil free
