Has anyone tried using Indian Henna as a conditioner? (not to dye).

I have used it but it was already mixed and in the forum of an oil called "Vatika".
Created my own natural conditioner by mixing eggs with mayonnaise and this oil as a sealant and I was very satisfied!! smiley My hair is starting to curl at the roots speeding up the transition process! cheesy

But before I get back to unmixed form of henna, let's talk vatika oil.
Here is a video of the typical praise it gets.

I ordered mine off of amazon.com and received a bundle of two. You guys I am VEEEERY satisfied with the product. I have used it as both a conditioner and a hot oil treatment. I am running out of supply sadly but happy that my hair is starting to get back to its natural state via its roots. I will post a picture of my own bottle later.

I do plan on restocking and ordering more but I intend to start using the powdered unmixed form of Indian Henna. smiley

How to apply and mix henna.

Keep in mind there are different brands.
But the effects are all the same.
Re: Beauty Of Natural Hair Thread :) by Nobody: 3:27pm On Sep 16, 2012
MY bottle of vatika. cheesy cheesy

the only thing i didn't care for was the smell
and the method you have to use to open it for the first application.
You have to poke a hole into the top otherwise if you try to squeeze it,
it will burst through and spill all over the place. I lost like
half of a bottle because of that lol. grin

But the results are awesome. smiley

Never heard of it. Tbh, I have stopped using products on my hair, just letting grow as black men would.
Btw, where is royal?

Hah, I havent seen him for a while either.

How is your hair getting along with no products?
Re: Beauty Of Natural Hair Thread :) by kandiikane(m): 5:49pm On Sep 16, 2012
It's growing quite well. I don't have hard hair so I don't need to put much product in it. I just noticed how black men who usually grow their hair hardly put any products in their hair. and it grows to great lengths

The only products I have for my hair is shea butter I came back with from gambia and indian hemp. I have my hair under a wig cap at the moment but when I put my hands through it, the texture is soo defined.

How do you use it in food?

I also use coco oil on me and the kid, but never tried that in food either, although I know many use it f.ex cooking.

I like natural things..

i know peaple that use it for cooking in central Nigeria(kwara state), though they use it for African stew, jolof rice, fried rice and frying of fish,meat, chicken, plantain and others. Although they use it, not because of the health advantage but because it is cheaper than processed vegetable oil. In such place peaple belive only poor use it as when the food cool, it tend to solidify making you to alway warm such food(hot) before eating.

Ahaaa..that would happen with coco oil as well.

For me, in norwegian views, I am not rich, at all. I like buying the cheapest, and most natural things for cooking, and I always heat up the food anyways..wink Next time I am frying, I will try coco oil. A liiiittle sceptic towards the shea butter, thoughwink

Yield:

Contradictory much? You're advocating natural hair on black women, yet you "can't stand short hair on a women (of any race or ethnicity)." Don't you realize black women who go natural have to start from somewhere and that is usually short hair? Not everyone transitions. Some cut off their relaxed hair once they decide to go natural and begin with little to no hair. I didn't transition when I did years ago and just cut it all off. Saying "more black women should rock their natural hair" but you can't stand short hair on women is a bit aimless.

Who said "natural" hair has to be short?
I like long hair, natural or otherwise.
Re: Beauty Of Natural Hair Thread :) by kandiikane(m): 2:15am On Sep 21, 2012
^if you read her comment you will see she didn't say natural hair has to be short.
She was merely stating how we have to either go bald or do a transition if we want to go natural. Many black children get their hair permed and if they decide to go natural they have to start from the beginning.

Otherwise what? You will marry another race with long natural hair. Uda fart an dat?
