    I tried it Ktani's way last time, but this time I decided to soak my sleep braid last night and wrap it in plastic. I slept on it, dunked the length again and bunned it while I finished a paper. I'm just about to get in the shower, but first I think I'll soak my scalp with the infusion. I'm going to try COing it out, so I'll let you know how it goes!

    Wow. Double wow. I have the softest ends now!! And the shine - the shine is outstanding! I basically just doused all of my dry hair (my braid was already soaked, of course) with the infusion, let it sit for a while, then COed it out. I mostly just concentrated on my scalp with the CO and just smoothed a little down the length, which was already feeling good from the catnip. After my shower I didn't even put my usual coconut oil in, just damp bunned it and off I went.

    I am soooo happy with this result! A few more times of this happening and I will be a dyed in the wool convert!

    I never liked catnip as a leave-in. I prefer to rinse it out but there is nothing wrong with leaving it in if you like it that way.

    At the dltution I am using right now ( 290ml and 1tsp catnip) I can leave it in or rinse it out. I left mine in last night because ...well I am lazy I guess lol. and it still feels soft this morning. I tried another dilution that I left in over night and my hair did not feel this soft so I think it depends on your hair and the dilution.

    I was recently using a little more than 1 tsp to just less than 275 ml of water and my hair was not as soft either.

    I figured out why, used exactly 1 level tsp as before and just over 275 ml, this last time, and my hair is silky and light again and very soft.

    The amount of catnip and the dilution do matter, but everyone will find their own preference for the amounts.

    Well I just washed my hair today for the first time with my new CV shampoo bar. I did not use the cat nip because I wanted to see what my hair felt like with the bar and vinegar rinse alone, it turned out really well. I have some catnip ready to go so I will try it next time.

    Should I use the catnip before or after the vinegar rinse?

    I tried this for the first time yesterday: 1 tbsp dried catnip in 1 quart of boiled water until it cooled, then strained the catnip out and soaked my hair in it, shower cap, angora hat for heat, left in 1-1/2 hours, then rinsed out. Wow! I didn't use any conditioner, but my hair was so easy to comb out afterwards, and the shine is outstanding.
