NCC I think you're right. One of those were BMT (sp??) flakes and needs water added so that's not a base.

If you look at the bases we found for Afroveda, they are EXACT matches except for the oils and herbal extracts she added. The hairveda stuff posted is too off for it to be a bases. I'm sure that she might use bases, but it's not the ones posted.
