I know that this thread is old but if anyone knows, I really am interested in herbs that would grow my hair, define/tighten my curls, but not turn my hair black? I am trying to get a great red (have considered henna but not sure if I am ready to take the plunge with that) and don't want darker hair.

Try the henna thread. Lots of great information.

Have not seen this thread in a hot minute so...

I am still using marshmallow root to DC and am thinking of making a leave in with only marshmallow root and an oil...have not decided on which oil yet.

I also wish there was a more finely ground brand of marshmallow root. While Mountain Rose Herbs is great, I still get some fibers remaining after I rinse.

I use an ayurvedic spray leave in by Lace Naturals and my hair abosolutely loves it as a refresher. it has marshmellow as one of the ingredients. I also use an ayurvedic shampoo bar that has eliminated my dandruff.

It's called Swastik Shikakai Naturally. I buy it at an Indian restaurant that also sells goods but I have seen it on line. Im prepooing with EVOO right now and about to use it.

Yes. It's the red bar. It is more for my scalp than my hair. It is supposed to nourish the scalp and it definitely does mine hence the no dandruff. I use it with another poo that is more for the hair. My skin was really sensitive when i was younger but not quite as much now. But then I pretty much stopped using commercial soaps years ago. My favs for my body are EVOO soap and goats milk. I get compliments all the time on my skin. Yesterday someone asked me what kind of makeup I had on and I was delighted to tell them I wasn't wearing makeup.
