Cassia May Be Your Answer To Correct Damage From The Elements And Manipulation

Cassia powder and amla powderWe advise you to do your own research to decide on the best mix for you. This particular recipe includes:

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.

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

Amla powder and aloe Vera powder are my favorites.

I always use coconut milk. Once I used apple cider vinegar with henna it dried my hair out so bad I had to cut three inches off. That’s hen I decided to go natural.

When it comes to henna, cassia or alma where can I find it? I usually stick to grocery and drugstore for hair products. Is this something that I need to run to a local market for?

I also add Brahmi to my conditioning pack. I use shikakai powder instead of shampoo. I recommend doing an oiling prepoo on damp hair to prevent dryness when using herbs.

Cathrine De Roche Wiggins

How is this applied ?

Would that treatment grow your hair
