We advise you to do your own research to decide on the best mix for you. This particular recipe includes:
- 100 grams cassia obovata powder
- 4 tbsp amla powder
- Hot water
- A squirt of conditioner
- Aloe vera gel from the plant (aloe vera juice can be used as well or the organic aloe vera powder)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
Liberally apply the mix in sections to barely damp hair. The damp hair allows it to spread better but some ladies have gotten the same results on dry hair. Cover your head with a shopping bag, steam cap, shower cap or what ever comes in handy to trap heat on your scalp so the mix can be activated.
You can then busy yourself with some household chores or errands or just sit under a hooded dryer for thirty minutes to an hour.
Once the time has elapsed, dunking your head in a sink full of warm water usually does the trick of washing it out (but you can also choose the more traditional shower approach too).
Your hair might feel a little dry after so you should go ahead and do a DC with heat using a moisturizing conditioner for about thirty minutes and you should be good to go!
The cassia and amla treatment is a keeper in my book. When I used it instantly there was a noticeable difference in the body of my hair and appearance of my curls. The cassia does a great job at filling in the cracks in the cuticle which results in stronger hair.
It is amazing how these two powders worked together synchronizing their efforts, since cassia is known to loosen curls while amla is known to tighten them!
Of course, ever the teacher, I have included visual aids chronicling the process for our visual learners LOL! So my fellow HHJ pilgrims, since I had promised that we would have a show and tell of sorts, check out the videos.
In this video DuchessGabrielle shares her recipe for mixing cassia.
Since experience is the best teacher and gives more credibility, I had to try it. This is my take on the cassia and amla treatment.
Ok! We showed you ours, so now it’s your turn to tell us about yours. Do share your cassia experience in the comments.
