Ayurvedic Friday: Henna Treatment

Hello Saints! I did my second Jamila henna treatment today! However... I did not leave it overnite since I wanted more conditioning then color. I also used coconut milk instead of tea or water.

Side Note: The quanity of henna mix I made is according to the current length of my hair which is ear lenth. As my hair grows the amounts of my ingredients used will increase based on my length

Here are my ingredients:
  • 2tbsp Jamila henna
  • coconut milk
  • 1tbsp Wild Growth oil mix (I had added other oils to it a while back)
  • 1tsp Navratna Oil Lite (more for the scent then the benefits)
  • 2tsp honey
  • 2tsp Maka powder
After mixing, I covered the mix and let it sit for about 3 hours then applied to my dry prepoo'd hair. I covered my hair with a plastic cap and left it in for 4 hours then cowashed it out using Jason Aloe Vera 84% Conditioner. There after I did a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment using Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner with heat for 30 minutes. Cowashed that out as well using Herbal Essences Hello Hydration conditioner (you know I had to put moisture back in). After all said and done...drum roll.... IT WAS THE BEST TREATMENT EVER!!. I actually still did get some color but still yet my hair feels sooooo amazingly soft and strong. I love it! I'm going to do this again next Friday (my designanted Ayurvedic treatment day)!

So this Sunday will be a month since I cut my grazing shoulder length hair to ear length. Let me tell you, this is a high mantenance length for me! I am doing all I can to keep from using heat on my hair. My first week I was a mess. I was in tears trying to figure out what to do with my hair. I work out 5+ days a week so I cowash my hair every other day. It is a must since I sweat like rain drops. It has been almost 4 months since I texlaxed my hair, so that is an added trial to the situation (yes, it's a situation to me). What did I do? I did the best thing I know to do....I PRAYED!

Say A Little Prayer

Dear Father God, thank you so much for bringing us safely and soundly through the month of May. Dear Lord, as we go into the month of June, please continue to order our steps and use us according to your will you have for each of our lives. We are willing vessels to be used by you Lord. Please forgive us of our sins. Please forgive us if we have said, done or thought anything that was not pleasing unto to you, Lord. Renew a right spirit within in us Lord! Please renew our hearts and minds. Let everything we do this day and every day be pleasing unto you Lord. We thank you for your Son Jesus Christ for giving His life on the cross so we too can be with you and the Son in the Kingdom. We thank you Lord for all you have done, been doing, going to do and have planned a head for each of our lives. Have your way in our lives. Please send your ministering angels of love, peace, joy and happiness into our presence. No weapon formed against us shall prosper! We bind the enemy in Jesus' might name. We thank you Lord. We love you Lord. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

I pray all is well with you all. As always, stay near the cross. You never know who you might meet there. Be blessed! :o)
