When will it expire?
It expires after 2 years from production date.
I made more than I should and there are left overs. Can I keep them in the fridge and use it again?
It wouldn’t damage your hair but it wouldn’t be as efficient as the freshly prepared recipe, so we advise you to make just enough for one use and throw out any excess.

Would it affect the color of my hair?
No. In fact it actually preserves natural hair color and makes it shinier. On top, it makes natural/chemical hair dyes stay longer on your hair.
How should I store it?
It should be stored at room temperature
Can I leave it more than 5 minutes on my hair?
Yes it’s totally fine, in fact it will act as a deep cleansing hair mask.
I followed the instructions but it didn’t become yogurt-like consistency. What should I do?
Measures can vary (cup sizes and tablespoons) so we advise you to mix with water until you reach this consistency.
Can I add it to henna mix?
Yes, it can make henna color stay longer on your hair.
How is it any different from the sedr leaves sold at the spice shop (attar)?
This is like how the henna from India/Yemen is different from the one sold at attar in terms of the effectiveness of the active ingredient and the quality of the sift. The leaves of the No Poo Recipe are 100% pure, natural, organic and also hand-picked. They are properly cultivated, dried at optimal temperature to preserve its active ingredients and carefully sifted from dust and any other impurities. This shows in the color of the powder as well as the quality of the sift.
