Yes, that’s right! I did my first henna application. I actually like it.
Now, I was using the Clairol Perfect 10, and I am still a fan! I just don’t understand why it isn’t sold “in” store. I have to constantly buy it online. So, I go to my local hairstore and came across this:
I was nervous of course, can my hair take this? Can you use it on already color treated hair? What if my hair falls out? You know the drill…..then I calm down and read the benefits:
no harsh chemicals
natural relaxer for hair
So, I dived in and was sooooo nervous! LOL I am thinking what application takes this long?? Henna has to sit for an hour before applying, then after applying sit on hair for 1-3 hours!! Well, I chose the one hour and next time Lord willing, I’m going for the 2 hours! My hair felt like it was 3x thicker than normal, and soooooo soft! You have to do this every 2 to 4 weeks. I already purchased another henna application. The color I have been using is dark chocolate. One of the tips suggest adding coffee to the mixture for deeper results, and I did do that.
Here is what I learned, henna is not as intimidating as I first thought. It may not process in 10 minutes but quick isn’t always best right? I think the lengthy process was worth it. The cost (depending on where you go) $6 – $10 bucks (no shipping)
