Welcome to Part 3 of our 6 part herb series. Last time around in part 2, we got into the benefits of Alma, Nettle, Sage, and Fenugreek. This time around, we’ll get into the benefits of Hibiscus, Chamomile, and Bhringraji [i.e false daisy]. Many of us have definitely at least heard of Hibiscus and Chamomile, but how many of you knew about false daisy and what it can do for our hair before today? Not many then that’s ok because this is why we’re doing this 6 part series for us, natural hair people, to get in touch with our inner herbal lifestyle selves. So let’s become one with nature and its herbs. As herbal remedies have amazing healing effects for not only the body, mind, and soul, but they can also give us the thick, voluminous, and smooth texture that we are looking for with our curl pattern and hair. So let’s get into it.

Please note that all of these herbs can also be found in powder and oil form. With the exception of chamomile oil, the remaining items can be applied to your scalp without being diluted with a carrier oil. For anyone who purchases the herbs, then be sure to boil the herbs with a carrier oil such as coconut, castor, almond or grapeseed oil, etc. for 30 minutes. Then let it settle and cool before applying it to your scalp. Stay tuned for our next video where I will try to make false daisy oil from scratch as the recipe is quite simple to do. All you need is the carrier oil of your choice and the herbs.
Plus don’t be scared to try these herbs out, as I use a lot of the oil forms within my own hair and find them to be quite helpful. Especially with shedding and breakage, which is something I used to have a lot of. However, if you’re not sure how to make or use these herbs, then stay tuned for the oil serum line.
