I like to use marshmallow root to condition & moisturize my hair--usually I pour it as a final rinse but lately I've been washing my hair in the sink so I just fill up the sink w/ my herbal infusion and let my hair soak in it. I love combining blue malva, marshmallow root, rose buds, and honey. I just boil some water then throw in the herbs--sometimes I use a muslin bag to hold the herbs and other times I have to use a strainer. I tried using a coffee filter recently and that didnt work out too well lol.
So I didnt trim afterall...couldnt find my hair sheers. I did the Cassia treatment using marshmallow infused water, about 30g of Cassia and a ton of honey. First of all, I didnt make enough to saturate my hair lol. I would have to mix up at least twice as much. Secondly, it took forever to wash out in the sink. I kept draining the water and rinsing...I did that about 8 times before the water got sufficiently clear of yellow and green particles. My hair came out a little dry on my ends, but looking at the strands they looked shiny & strong
I'm slowly twisting my hair--its taking forever since I have to detangle each strand and of course its the holidays so I'm super busy.
My resolution for 2008 is take better care of my hair. I think I want to alternate treatments of amla, cassia, and rhassoul with Aubrey's GPB; keep my hair in protective styles and only wash every 3 weeks. I was doing this earlier this year but I stopped after I started at the Academy & then my new job.
