If you are a beginner, incorporating leaves and powders into your hair regime may seem confusing and foreign but Ayurvedic herbs are easy and flexible to incorporate into your regular hair care practices. Here are 3 ways to use Ayurvedic herbs.
- Spray treatment
Take your Hibiscus leaves and Ayurvedic powders of your choice together into a disposable tea bag or a tea strainer and place in a mug with some boiling water to create a hair tea. Once cooled transfer this tea into a spray bottle to spritz your hair while detangling or before washing.
2. Ayurvedic hair oil
With your Ayurvedic ingredients of choice, place them into your blender and pulse until you create a thick paste. Add this paste to a pot on a low/medium heat with 500ml of a neutral oil like olive oil or coconut oil. Cook the past in the oil but make sure you don’t burn it. Then let the oil cool and strain with a cheese cloth or a coffee filter. Add any essential oils of choice and then transfer to a jar or bottle.
3. Hair Mask
This super easy hair mask consists of crushed hibiscus leaves and flowers and alma powder. Stir the ingredients together and add some water or coconut milk to create a smooth paste. You then want to liberally apply the mask to your hair and your roots leaving it for 20-30mins before rinsing.
