I purchased my oils and powder at my local Indian grocery store.

I love using amla powder because I find that 99% of the time the amla oil is mixed in with mineral oil 🙁 I use a henna mix that is pre-mixed with amla and shikakia and do that every two weeks. I DC before and after henna-ing it is a long process so I have to do it on days that I have absolutely nothing planned. Along with a better diet and exercise regime, an ayurvedic regime has brought my hair back to life!

I’ve tried the amla and shikakai powders in my DC but they really dried my hair out then I used amla/shikakai as a shampoo also too drying and I have not used them since. I now DC with a paraben free conditioner and a mix of oils, my hair is happy enough. I do final rinse with black tea and sometimes I use hibiscus tea as both are said to dye gray hairs. Unfortunately my hair hates pure coconut oil so I usually add it to other oils and use it that way. Henna also dries out my hair even… Read more »

Hey Natalie, the powders are quite drying which is why I always DC after using any of those powders. If I don’t have time to DC then I won’t apply it. My hair does hate coconut oil as well. Try to DC your hair with your conditioner mixed with molasses. It makes my hair softer.

http://www.ayurnaturalbeauty.com/ This site is great. She ships fast and since I was new to henna I was nervous about the mixing process and what to add in. She has regular henna varieties and also sells treatments that are pre-mixed with all of the good herbs you need. I have used the Cassia treatment twice. I have the henna treatment as well but haven’t gotten around to using it yet.

I use alma oil for my oil wash, and have been doing so for over a year…I can’t say enough about it!

I tried the powders as a paste alone, but I prefer to either infuse the powders with an oil or tea (straining off any residue from the powders with cheese cloth) and use it that way, as I have found there is less residue with this method.

I love ayurveda. I love using ayurvedic ingredients in my regimen. I tend to do amla, brahmi, shikakai or tulsi DC’s on a bi-weekly basis. It really makes my hair strong and the colour is a nice dark black. I’ve started doing henna as well. I love henna.

I use henna and hibiscus powder.

I add the hibiscus powder to my henna mix; it makes the red a little darker. My grays aren’t orange or cherry red, but a nice wine.

I’ve also added hibiscus powder to my conditioner when deep conditioning. I have no trouble with dryness. I believe it gives the condish a “boost”.

I’m planning on trying a few other powders in the near future.

I use the Vatika brand coconut oil and it is my favorite go-to sealing oil. It is infused with amla, henna and lemon extracts.I also use Henna/Brahmi powder strengthening treatments interchangeably with protein treatments. I have noticed differences in my hair strength and texture.

This system is the way to go. Been transitioning for at least 9 months. I now Henna, use all natural ingredients for DC honey, mayo, egg, coconut milk, Olive oil. I don’t recognize my hair. It is so soft and rich looking. I have a little India area near me so I can find all of these products. Im trying vatika Coconut oil next but I researched and you must buy the enriched coconut oil not coconut oil enriched. I am trying to find indigo but have had no luck the red hair suits me okay but I like brown hair. Wish I… Read more »

Physically, clothing serves many purposes: it can serve as protection from the elements, and can enhance safety during hazardous activities such as hiking and cooking. It protects the wearer from rough surfaces, rash-causing plants, insect bites, splinters, thorns and prickles by providing a barrier between the skin and the environment. Clothes can insulate against cold or hot conditions. Further, they can provide a hygienic barrier, keeping infectious and toxic materials away from the body. Clothing also provides protection from harmful UV radiation.^
