My BTF Holly at Curl Rehab is doing an ayurvedic challenge and it had me thinking about some ‘vedic recipes I have laying around. Here is one for an Ayurvedic Deep Treatment that is a quick and easy was to incorporate Ayurveda into your regimen, honestly it is similar to a henna gloss. Now I am not the encyclopedia of all things Vedic but you can read more about it here or let your fingers do the walking through a google search. Take this quiz to help determine your dosha if you are so inclined.
Ayurvedic Deep Treatment
- 1/4 cup plain full fat greek yogurt (or use cheapy condish)
- 3 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp castor oil
- 4-6 Tbsp favorite ayurvedic herbs: Bhringaraj, Brahmi, Amla, Henna, Cassia, Neem, Tulsi, etc…
Place yogurt (or condish) into a plastic non-metallic bowl. Add ayurvedic herbs and mix thoroughly. Add oils and continue to mix to your desired texture. Apply to hair, cover with conditioning cap for 20-30 mins then rinse.
