Some more about Awapuhi....

Awapuhi is a native Hawaiian plant that has been used by the indigenous people of these islands for hundreds of years. It is often referred to as “shampoo ginger,” and its most well-known use is that of a shampoo and hair conditioner.
However, the gel from the flowers is also used as a massage lubricant, the root is used for indigestion, toothache, and sprains and as a fragrance to scent clothing, and the leaves can be used as a flavoring for foods.
The root of the plant was not traditionally used in cooking (as common ginger is), but you can drink the flower gel to quench your thirst. Awapuhi is a perennial plant; it dies back each winter, and grows anew in the spring.
The leaf stalks are the first to emerge, growing up to three feet tall with several blade-like leaves on each stalk. During the summer months, the flower stalk emerges from the soil, rather than growing from the leaf stalk as one might expect.
The flower is club shaped with overlapping scales that fill with liquid as the flower matures and turns red. After the flower dies in the fall, the roots are harvested and dried for later use.
