My Ayurvedic Way!

I have not done an ayurvedic treatment in a while, I have some treatment sitting around and I decided to give myself a pamper.

Coconut Milk
Coconut Cream

The steps I took in making a nice creamy coconut ‘Amla Hair Mask’. I simmer the I can of coconut milk and half the block of coconut cream, it was rich, creamy and thick had to add water to the mix. Simmer for about 5-10mins just make the block dissolve into the coconut milk.

First time shopping with this vendor what made me decide to order was I have been searching for D-Panthenol for ages and Lola from Lolascrib told me about another site and I was excited, but I did some more search and came across And I spot the other hard to find item ‘Dark Virgin Cocoa Butter’. I ended up shopping at fresholi because the d-panthenol was cheaper and I got more for my money and I also wanted the Dark Cocoa Butter for my Rhassoul Clay mix ; )!









Darcy’s Botancials Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme


Promises:  Our transitioning creme is a thick, rich and creamy leave-in that will IMAG1555help to condition, moisturize and detangle your hair's new growth to help soften & make it more manageable and healthy.
Our delicious moisturizing creme can also be used to do comb coils to help start dreads. I use it to do comb coils on my daughter's hair and on my own hair during my first attempt at starter dreads.
I hand whip a healthy dose of organic virgin coconut oil, organic aloe vera, and other natural conditioning & detangling ingredients.
No need to add additional fragrance. It's all natural aroma of fresh coconuts with a touch of lemongrass essential oil is simply delightful.
Our Coconut Lemongrass Creme can also double as a body lotion:)


Directions:  Apply just a small amount throughout wet or dry hair for healthy conditioning and moisture.
*Use to gently soften and detangle new growth while transitioning to natural hair .
*Use it as a daily or weekly leave-in to naturally condition dry curls & waves.
