As you know, I LOVE Ayurveda..it’s done wonders by me (despite me not using it frequently and consistently). However, I have a mix that I used to use, but since my hair recently was severely dry and feeling lost, I decided to tweak my formula.
Here’s what you will need:
- 5tsp Amla Powder
- 2tsp Brahmi Powder
- 1tsp Shikakai Powder
- 1-2Tbsp EVOO
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
- 1/4 Cup Water (Hot)
- Spoon (teaspoon)
- Fork (optional)
- Plastic wrap/plastic bag/plastic cap
- Towel or Paper Towels
Put all the powdered ingredients into the bowl then add the EVOO. Stir till it is a cake-batter like creamy consistency. Add in the coconut milk slowly. It will clump. Stir again till almost creamy. Next add the hot water in slowly, stirring as you go, till it is a creamy and smooth cake batter. Let sit for about 2 minutes to cool.
Apply to the hair in sections. It is best to apply it to dampened sections. Concentrate on root to tip, section by section. Once fully applied, cover the hair with plastic and let sit for atleast 1 hour to 4 hours, or even overnight if you so choose. Rinse out using lukewarm water, with a conditioner (I used Herbal Essences Hello Hydration), then proceed to co-wash and deep condition as normal. Your hair should feel quenched!
Stay Blessed and Afroniquely You!
