In taking care of my hair in the winter I look forward to doing more cassia treatments to help in keeping my hair strong, moisturized and soft. I also look forward to using my Vatika oil to seal my hair and to aid in untwisting my twist.

My favorite herb has to be Cassie. It makes my hair so soft.

MissGlad said...

This winter I plan to attempt different types of protective styles. I like wash n go also but my hair will be frozen by the time I get to work if I do that. So...looking forward to twists, twist outs. Maybe even some flat twists too.

Angelique said...

Henna has to be my fav. And when I do remember I have a ayurvedic regimen. Because I'm in the military and stationed in the NorthWest I normally just do twist or flat twists but this winter I think I may try wigs and sew-ins. I already was a fan of AyurNatural Beauty's page and I have liked Curly Kinks page. Also AWESOME Giveaway.

marshmallow root powder is by far my favorite!

I am avy user! =D Well...I am not advanced in the usage as much as others yet, lol. Unlike most natural products, this is one I can actually afford, lol. I love to henna my hair every two to three weeks. Mostly for color since I am scared to really color my hair red. The other benefits of it are a major bonus, too! I also use amla treatments from time to time, but I don't really do as much now. Due to it toning my red down. :( But I love using it as a face mask once a week. Yosh! =D

As for my winter reggie....I look forward to my protective styling! I know most naturals hate doing it, but I praise it. I had my fun rocking big crazy hair this summer. Now winter has come it is time to get lazy and put the hair up and out of my face; also away from these extremely strong winds and little rain Cali gets. Ah, oh, hiw a cerish the days of walking around DCing my hair under a beanie. Lmao

I use to do an ayurvedic treatment weekly but I have since cut it back to 1-2 times a month just to save product. Amla is my absolute favorite herb. I have to have that as my main ingredient in my mixes or else it's pointless. I love that stuff. I "liked" AyurNatural Beauty's Facebook page. I only order through them they have the best customer service and the owner puts her all in to making sure her product is of the best quality.

NaturalDezign said...

This winter I am most looking forward to the lack of shrinkage and my hair retaining moisture better. In this hot weather my hair is harder to keep moisturized so in the fall/winter it's easier to maintain and I can use less product. I also "liked" Curly Kinks Facebook page.

janile said...

I have an ayurvedic regimen. I henna once a month and mix brahmi (and sometimes amla) in my deep conditioner. I currently use Rajasthani henna and have always wanted to try Nupur henna.

As strange as it sounds, for this winter I'm most looking forward to experimenting with sealing with mineral oil products. I keep reading that mineral oil seals better than the natural oils I've been using. Winter seems like the perfect time to put this to the test.

Conichka said...

I LOVE the Nupur Henna, it is full of other ayurvedic powders as well as henna, I but this from Ayurnatural Beauty and already am a FB follower.

Conichka said...

This Winter I am looking for a GOOD deep conditioner and this one has "yummy ingredients", I will do cute protective styles with twist for the winter. I am now a FB fan of Curly Kinks.

Ms Mila said...

I only use Ayurvedic herds and poducts in my hair. I henna once a month with Jamila Henna. and for my braids and twist-outs I use NjoiCreationS on Etsy Ayurvedic Hair Butter.I also do a Rhassoul Clay treatment once a month. My favorite hibiscus I put it in every treatment i do. Love the color it gives my hair. I liked ayurnaturalbeauty on fb.

Ms Mila said...

This winter Protective Styling is a must. Keeping my hair Moisturize from the dry winter air. I liked curly kinks on FB.

Shawnystheone said...

ooooh these are some GREAT comments, keep them coming!!!

Janile , Im not against using mineral oil , it does SEAL very well , I just make sure it doesnt get on my scalp

Hi-

What a wonderful give away! I already like ANB.

I also have a somewhat ayurvedic hair regimen. I henna every 3 weeks and use Zizyphus to add weight to my hair while also plumping up my curls. I use the Jamaican Black Castor Oil to seal my ends.

I'm currently awaiting my shipment of Red Pimento oil to hopefully stop the itchies in my scalp.

I have been practicing Ayurveda for years. I take Pitta Balancing Herbs as I have thinning hair. My favorite herb is Amla as it reduces heat in the body. I just started doing Cassia treatments. Don't know why I waited so long to do those! As for my winte routine. Lots and lots of co-washing and deep conditioners with less protein. I would love to add Curly Kinks dc to my regimine and the vatika oil to keep the moisture sealed in my hair. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mary said...

I'm looking forward to getting braids. Winter can be rough on hair, so the braids will protect my hair and give me time for other things in my life. I also liked CurlyKinks on facebook.

TrollopCM said...

I'm looking forward to weekly deep treatments. I've always worn extensions but I want to show my hair some TLC in the cold weather.

Danyelle said...

Hi!I have been using Ayurvedic products on my hair on and off for a few years now,until recently I have decided to go on a consistent ayurvedic hair care regimen.I like to use Sandu's Amla and Bhrahmi Hair Wash for my weekly shampoo and I use Sandu's Henna Conditioner to condition.I sometimes use Swatstik's shampoo bar.I like using Bhringeraj and Neem oil for scalp massages and I can't forget my beloved Vatika oil that I use to seal in moisture daily and for deep conditions.I love all things dealing with Ayurveda and I am looking forward to trying out new products in Indian hair care:)I have not tried the powders yet but I am so excited to very soon,Ayurveda is Love..thanks:)

Jo Somebody said...

Oooooh, ayurveda! I do monthly Henna (plus amla, hibiscus, burdock root, honey and a conditioner) treatments, as well as fortnightly amla, maka and brahmi paste treatments or amla, fenugreek and tulsi paste treatments.
If my hair is in a protective style, I may do a tea rinse to cleanse which is shikakai, tulsi, maka, amla and neem, instead of shampooing.
Amla features everywhere, but my favourite results actually involve maka (bhringraj). It just makes my hair SOFT! Also, putting a paste mix in the freezer for a week+ before use = super boosted results.

I'm looking forward to winter because I'm just past a year since starting the journey (transitioning) and I will know my hair better. Also, there is my birthday (well, it's in autumn), Christmas and New Years to try out celebratory hairstyles. Finally, SALES! This product junkie has looooads of things she wants to try! Hehe!

I liked both Facebook pages and said you sent me (I'm Joanna Ukhueleigbe on there).

Thanks for the giveaway! Good luck everyone. (sorry for rambling) :-D

Jo Somebody said...

I forgot to say two things! I like the ayurvedic shampoo bar from Chagrin Valley. It's great!
Also, I'm going to try some of the powders on my face as a mask. I wonder how it'll turn out???

Ok, one more thing! Marshmallow root added to your paste makes it a little easier to wash the powders out. HTH!
