Beautiful Hair Mixture for African-American Hair
by Diane January
Porous African-American Hair
1 cup Beautiful Hair henna
3 to 4 tablespoons cup apple cider vinegar
Mix in enough of your favorite hair tea to make a smooth mixture, something like the consistency of thick cake batter. I added about 1/2 teaspoon of lavender essential oil and let it sit overnight. Next day, add about 1/2 to 1 cup of your favorite slippery moisturizing conditioner. This makes quite a bit, so adjust your portions according to your needs. Enjoy some softer, smoother, shinier-looking hair, which can still be moisturized because henna does not lock out our moisturizing products.

I have recently started learning about herbs and their many uses. I live in an area rich with wild plants and herbs, and it amazes me to think they were here under my nose all this time and I thought they were just weeds! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. You truly have a great ministry in what you are doing. ~Lisa

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
