I have really thick wavy curly hair and as winters are around, they are much more coarse and unruly.
One remedy always helps me to manage them. It helps me with dryness, scalp itchinesses, even hair loss in spring season. On the top of that, IT SMELLS DIVINE TOO. So earthy and so herby.
Fenugreek, Rosemary and Sage hair spray
Step 1: Add fenugreek seeds to one glass of water. Let it soak overnight.
Step 2: Add two glasses of water in a pan and heat it till it starts boiling.
Step 3: Bring down the heat to the lowest level and add rosemary and sage leaves to it. Cover it immediately.
Step 4: Let it simmer for two to three minutes. Take this mixture off the heat.
Step5: Allow the rosemary and sage water to cool down. Do not take the cover/lid off the container. You’ll notice the colour has changed, when you finally lift off the cover. This is exactly what is supposed to happen!
Step 6: Once the mixture has cooled, add the fenugreek seeds water to it.
Store the mix in a glass/plastic spray bottle and use it in morning or evening whenever you want to untangle your beautiful unruly curls.
Fenugreek is a superfood for hair as well as body. You can drink the overnight soaked water (filter the seeds from water) and it will clear your digestive system hence helps with clearing of skin too. It’s so so potent. It’s doesn’t taste the best but it’s called magical seed in India.
Thank you for liking the thread.
I generally soak one fist fenugreek seeds in almost one and a half cup of water.
Take almost 2-3 strands of rosemary from my garden and like one tablespoon of loose sage leaves.
Pleas adjust it as per your likings (if you like rosemary, add that a little more than other ones)
My personal recommendation is Coconut oil and Jojoba oil. After discovering these oils I threw away the commercial serums and anti frizz cosmetics because simple natural oil works much better.Both work great as a leave in conditioner, to reduce potential post shampoo afro syndrome, dryness or breakage. A couple of drops of rosemary, lavender thyme and cedarwood essential oils can be a nice addition for hair health supplement and to smell nice.
Yes I agree on the natural oil part
Coconut oil doesn’t work for my hair because my hair are low porosity hair and the curled kind of get weight down even after the wash. I like the bounce.
I use rosemary, lavender and jojoba oil blend for oiling and the natura spray I mentioned. It works perfect for my hair.
