I prefer cassia as a hair strengthening treatment over henna because it provides all the benefits without the colour deposit.  Contrary to popular belief cassia is actually not neutral.  It actually has a golden yellow dye molecule that won't show up unless you are very pale blonde or grey.  Cassia will condition the hair, make it glossy and promotes a healthy scalp.
Typically when I use cassia I mix with water but this time I decided to mix things up a bit and use coconut milk in hopes that it would provide some extra moisture
I picked up a can of coconut milk from the grocery store (398ml) and mixed it with 100 grams of cassia that I purchased on Ebay.

I washed my hair with shampoo and then applied the treatment.  I left the treatment on for about an hour and a half and then thoroughly rinsed.  It took quite some time to ensure it was all out.


  1. I know the feeling...henna and cassia take a while to wash off! lol I still prefer henna though :) Great review and thanks for sharing!!
