Mix fenugreek powder with full fat yogurt and/or a little warm to hot distilled water juice into a paste. Apply the mixture to your hair from root to tip and gently massage it into your scalp. Leave the mask on for about an hour or up to 2 hours for best results.
You can then wash it out and then use our cleansing cowash to remove the mask. You can then do a deep conditioning treatment. Then moisturize, dry and style as usual.
This mask recipe is excellent for promoting hair growth: Mix fenugreek powder (100 grams for up to shoulder length hair, adjust as needed) with 1 tsp of aloe vera powder, add 1-2 tbsp of your favorite hair oil and 6-7 drops of rosemary essential oil.
Measuring the henna powder. Take 2 tbsp of henna powder (about 25 grams of henna), and put it into a bowl. Add 1 tsp of sugar of your choice, and mix well.
Adding the lemon juice/water/tea brew. Heat your liquid (about 1/4 cup) on the stove or in your microwave, and add it slowly to your henna powder. Mix well until it is the consistency of play dough/ mashed potatoes. Cover your bowl and let our Suprime Blend sit from 12 -24 hours
Adding essential oil. Then add 1-1.5 tsp of “terps” (essential oil). Cover again and let it sit for another 6-12 hours. Please make sure to read the article on how to choose the right henna powder for body art as it explains how different henna powders have different sitting periods to achieve proper dye release.
Testing the paste. Test your henna paste periodically by placing a bit of paste onto your palm and let it sit for 1 minute.
Remove the paste by washing off, and see if you have a bright pumpkin orange stain indicating that it is ready to use.
Second round of lemon juice/water. Add more lemon juice/water (not warmed up) a little at a time and mix well. Do this until you have it to the consistency of toothpaste.
Straining your henna paste makes it extra smooth. You can do this by taking a large cup and placing a carrot bag inside, and then putting a cheap nylon stocking inside that. You then pour the henna paste into the stocking’s opening and pull the stocking through the carrot bag. That way, the henna paste is forced to come through the nylon stocking into the carrot bag. It will be extremely smooth and you won’t have any clogs in your fine tips or cones. What is also good about this method is that, once the henna paste is in the carrot bag, you can easily use that to fill all your applicators up. Test your henna paste for dye release as well.
