Go heat free for as long as possible: Hair that is damaged due to unhealthy thermal straightening practices needs to be nursed back to health. Going heat free allows for protein regeneration along the hair shaft, which strengthens the Keratin bonds, resulting in stronger hair. Try a series of protein treatments to fortify your tresses during this time. I would recommend doing two protein treatments the first month of your journey.
Try an Ayurvedic regimen: I maintained a strict Ayurvedic regimen in my third month of my hair journey, this included scalp massages [helps stimulate scalp, which in turn promotes growth], implementing an ayurvedic pre poo regimen, and also regular henna treatments to strengthen my hair. Most of my Ayurvedic products were all natural herbs and oils that are all purported to help thicken hair, and stop excessive shedding/breakage.
For Retaining Length:
Brahmi powder: is best known traditionally for its rejuvenation properties affecting brain cells and bringing improvement to memory functions. It is most commonly used in Ayurveda in brain tonics.
For hair care concerns, brahmi is best used in combination with amla, bhringraj, shikakai, tulsi, and/or neem powders to provide not only stronger roots, but also thicker hair and relief from itchy scalps. Brahmi can be used in a paste, a tea sprtiz for hair, or in an oil infusion.
Cassia Powder: Specifically formulated to be the perfect alternative for those who want conditioning benefits of natural henna without color deposit on dark hair plus the added benefits of ayurvedic herbs to further boost hair strength, shine, nourishment, and health.
Hibiscus Petal Powder: In Ayurveda, Hibiscus (Jaswand) is known as one of the best secrets to beautiful and healthy hair. Hibiscus promotes hair growth, stops hairfall, gives hair a healthy luster with bounce, and delays premature graying. Hibiscus has been a wonderful ingredient in hair treatments that combine other ayurvedic herbs such as alma and brahmi. For henna color treatments, hibiscus is used to achieve a burgandy to black cherry color on hair. It is also slightly acidic and helps to aid in a faster henna dye release. As a drinkable tea, hibiscus is a natural body coolant and makes a great refreshing drink. Even better is using hibiscus powder in a tea rinse for hair!
Our hibiscus is organic and from Egypt. It was double packaged, sealed, and kept at cool, dry temps away from direct light to ensure freshness. Our hibiscus petal powder will come to you in reclosable food grade ziplock packaging. We only package as the order comes in to retain optimum freshness.
Bhringraj: is an ancient ayurvedic herb widely known for its effectiveness against hair ailments. In ayurveda, the herb is used for treating hair loss, improving hair texture, and to stop premature balding and graying and various skin allergies. Alopecia sufferers will also find bhringraj to be beneficial in promoting hair regrowth. Even without suffering any ailments, bhringraj aids in luxurious hair growth.
Infusing bhringraj in an oil such as coconut or sesame oil to massage onto the scalp will help with baldness and can cause a regrowth of hair. Use as a paste in combination with amla, brahmi, shikakai, tulsi, and/or neem to see wonderful growth and hair conditioning benefits.
Alma Powder: Amla fruit, commonly known as Indian Gooseberry or Amalaki, is a sour fruit abundant in India and well known in Ayurveda for its many benefits in health and beauty. Known for having the highest content of vitamin C, amla is especially good for boosting the immune system. In beauty, amla provides benefits in both hair care and skin care. In hair care, Amla is used in oil infused tonics or in powder form to provide added strength to hair roots, bring luster to hair, encourage hair growth, and addresses premature greying. In skin care, face masks using amla paste provides nourishment to skin thereby assisting with dullness of skin
