I mixed my Goddess Hair mask with camelia oil, rose water, aloe vera gel (I forgot to order the powder), and warm water. I admit I was a little intimidated by the strong red/maroon color of the mask, but it didn't stain. I got it all over my bathroom sink and didn't stain that either. After rinsing out with the orange cowash, I blow-dried my hair to give it a trim and it is so light, fluffy, and soft. This is a keeper!
