  • Henna Success!

    I tried henna for the first time after doing lots of research, and I loved it!

    I used henna for african hair from mehandi.com, which is henna thats more sifted so it comes out easier for us lol. In my mix I didn't use any lemon. I used chamomile tea that I added minced ginger to, cinnamon, and honey. (I added the honey for moisture retention, and supposedly honey and cinnamon make a natural peroxide, idk if it helped with the color or not). But after 4 hours, I rinsed it and had a nice tint. :3

    Hi Temstar,
    Yesterday was my 1st time trying henna also! I used Rainbow Henna Persia Cooper to condition my hair and make it stronger. N to get a tint of color. So is was disappointed or shocked to see my curl pattern loosen up. I only kept it on for 45 minutes with heat! My hair came out so dry so I'm not happy about that either! I put yogurt n evoo in my henna mix. The henna did cover the few grays I had so that was an unexpected n pleasant surprise. I'm just not sure how I feel about my results yet! I hope it has made my hair healthier n stronger!! That was my main reason for trying it. Don't think I will do it again for awhile. I am 5 1/2 month post perm. Oh n I did deep condition my hair after the henna treatment n my hair was still so dry.

      Make sure that the DC you use doesn't contain any protein. I use Curl Junkie Moisture Rehab.

        Hi!!
        I saw that people have had drying issues with their henna, so I researched and researched. I know yogurt gives a protein treatment, which can leave dry brittleness without proper conditioning after, or if your hair is protein sensitive. I saw someone note that henna kinda already acts like a protein, so I didn't use yogurt and they were right! It did feel somewhat harder. Also, I'm an EVOO fanatic but I didn't use it because I felt like oil would keep it from penetrating completely. I did use a deep conditioner afterwards to resoften, and added moisture whenever it felt dry for the past week. I'm currently happy with the results! I hope yours will be too~ ^u^
        I'm gonna try a warm oil treatment on it this weekend for extra conditioning.

            Take 100 to 500 grams of good quality henna, depending upon the length of your hair. Mix this with warm water to make a smooth paste of it.
