After 3-5 days have passed, remove any dust or particles from your braids. Refresh with water or hair tea. Using gloves, reapply the conditioner/oil mix you made. Apply chebe powder over the hair. Rotate between those two steps until braid is fully coated. Then 2-3 days later, you can take your braids and wash as usual (or prepoo). Repeat chebe treatments every 6-8 weeks.
The mask/treatment method: Mix equal amounts of your favorite conditioner and one of our hair oils and add in 1 tsp of chebe and 3-4 tsp of your favorite Ayurvedic herbs (make sure 1 or 2 of them is fenugreek, aloe or hibiscus for moisture). Mix well. Apply onto the hair strands by sections (avoiding the scalp). Leave in the hair 1-2 hours or use a heat cap to cut the time in half. Then rinse out using our cleansing cowash. Moisture, dry and style as usual.
