  • Henna help

    Hi curly lovers
    I am almost 10 mos. in and I've been thinking about henna-ing my hair. I order my henna yesterday and it'll be here soon. How do I do this? What do I need? I've read a lot about what I need to buy the types of henna. But now what? What is the best recipe?
    The following pictures are not mine just what I'd like my hair color to look like

    Hey Mrs. NaturalSkky

    What type of henna are you using? Since u are new at using henna I would say just keep it simple. Use water, green tea, and whatever hair oil you already use. Please make sure you deep condition afterwards for at least an hour or more. HTH

    P.S. go to www.hennasooq.com and hennablogspot.com for great henna info. This is where I buy all my herbs.

      I'm such a henna head, it's unreal. I use Jamila BAQ henna and LUSH Henna blocks (when I'm feeling fancy). The best thing to do is keep your recipe simple, until you get the hang of it ... Once you've got it down you could probably get a bit more fancy or just leave well enough alone. Also, color is a process ... it'll take a few applications for the color deposit to be as vibrant as the ladies in the pics - I see you attached Shelli (of Hairscapades). You should check out how she does it. Happy henna'ing!

        Unless u have the same type of hair type and curl pattern as the pics u posted, u won't get those same results. I henna and it turns my grays red. But I have only hennaed about 4 times. It does make my hair soft and seems very healthy afterwards, but my curl pattern or texture has not changed. I follow CurlyNikki's tutorial on Henna on her website very simple!!!!!
        Hope this helps.

          I've been hennaing my hair for 2 years and those colors more than likely wont be produced from henna unless you have greys or another color in your hair currently that the henna will go over and change. Or unless the henna you ordered is chemically enhanced.

          I used jamila henna, I've used other hennas with high lawsone content but jamila produces the best for me.

          What are you trying to achieve from henna?. I love that its a conditioning treatment. It strengthens my hair and adds shine to it as well. If I could get more color if take it but the color won't show much unless you're a brown shade of hair color naturally.

            Use henna, egg and olive oil mixture work wonders for hair. Donít use henna without oil, it can dry the hair too much.
