Found some at the local Indian grocer. Do I just mix with some water to form a paste then put on hair?

Hoping for more slip in my hair.

Thanks in advance

Yup, basically. Best to use the powdered seed......i just boil the kettle, let it cool down a bit, then add it to some powder and mix really well. The stuff swells alot though so the first time you might make too much. I leave it for an hour or so then usually add more hot water to thin it a bit, it takes a while for the mucilage to "come out".

Wow...hair mucho slip now. Ho wlong does it last? I had some coconut oil on hair when I added the Methi. Washed twice and feels soft and silky. :)

I'm so glad you like it :)

I'm not sure how long it lasts because it's rare that i go longer than about 12 hours after washing before re-oiling. I expect it lasts a while though, guess you'll need to just see how it goes. :)
