Ayurvedic Treatment of the Week : Fenugreek+Coconut Cream+ your favorite oil

 If you don't know where to purchase coconut cream, simply buy  a can of coconut milk and let it sit for a couple of days or longer. When you open the can the creamy substance on top is the cream of the coconut. Instant coconut cream( my bootleg version).  If you're fancy you can buy the kind listed here .  I purchased it last year and found no difference in buying regular coconut milk.

4-5ozs of coconut cream
3 tablespoons of Fenugreek powder
I used 2 teaspoons of Cocoveda oil from HennaSooq ( you can use whatever oils your favorite)

*Note the fenugreek in this recipe will harden after applying , you can keep in your hair from 20 minutes up until 2 hours if need be

This mixture is wonderful as a pre-poo to shampooing or a deep treatment after washing your hair. The fenugreek acts as a conditioning agents( also known to reduce hair loss, and thinning)while the coconut leaves the hair with a shine and bounce to it. I added oil to add in the slip and conditioning of adding it to my dry hair.

You can order Fenugreek powder here if you cant find it at a local Indian store. Another name  for Fenugreek is methi.

You should give it a shot , My hair was so light and airy after washing it out . I used it as a prepoo and simply just added some oil afterwards and kept it moving!

Fenugreek is very nice!
