Perfect for my grays
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'm totally new to amla powder, so I didn't know what to expect and was a little worried about how it would alter the color of dark blonde hair. Turned out to be very, very gentle. The change in color was not noticeable to anyone but me, and I like that the result is so natural. It left my hair soft and manageable, not flat or dry. It definitely enhanced the volume, too, which is so vital for women with fine hair. I will definitely use amla again, and I'm trying out some other powders from Henna Sooq as well.
Though some strengthening treatments such as cassia or henna need a deep conditioning treatment afterwards, amla actually strengthens and conditions. Left the hair curly, moisturized and shiny.
I added the Amla into my henna mix. I'm not sure, but when I untwisted my hair, it had incredible definition, and shine. If the Amla contributed to that --- HOORAY!!! I will continue to use Amla in my hair oils. And now that I know it can be used in skincare, I plan to mix it with my African Black Soap.
