Ten days after using Henna

It has been ten days since my henna treatment and I trimmed my hair before I did my henna treatment, my hair seems more glossy, because I added the temporary colour to the henna, my highlights don't have that brassy look. I will probably do another henna treatment and see how my hair is.

My henna results before and after

I was very pleased with the results of the henna, particularly mixing it this way, it washed out easily. After the deep conditioner, my hair was very soft and very easy to comb. Some people have experienced loosening of the curl patter, hence shrinkage is reduced, but that may come after many more application of henna. Also I will be trying the coconut cream natural relaxer, which is supposed to loosen the curl patern, I will probably do that one towards the end of the month.

My hair is highlighted and my parts of my grey hair have a rich reddish colour, plus I did add the shaders and toners hot cinammon. The dark parts of my hair is also has a rich vibrant colour.
Very pleased with my results.

Using Henna

I have tried henna in the past and I used it, because yes I am vain and I want big thick long hair, so thanks to Curly Nikki. She is available on I used her method.
The henna, I got from my local Asian supermarket in Shepherd's bush Market. So with one packet of henna, I mixed warm nettle tea, 2 tablespoons of honey, one packet of toners and shaders, hot cinammon, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. The henna was mixed until it was in a smooth paste, then I covered the henna and placed in the airing cupboard over night.

I conditioned washed my hair, then applied the henna for four and a half hours, washed and rinsed thoroughly with conditioner, then deep conditioned for 30-60 minutes, then rinsed with cider vinegar rinse.

Very pleased with how my hair came out. Curly Nikki, blog is very informative and she has lovely hair.
