This is about my first experience with Henna. I have been hearing so much about it and a friend of mine said she was going to try it. So we went to the store and bought some. I was a little confused about how to do it because she was telling me one thing and then i watched youtube videos and it was totally different. So i decided to do it the best way i could..lol I used 1/2 cup Organo Gold Red Tea and three packets of the Henna. It wasn't pasty like the videos i seen but watery like regular dye you buy in the store. I let it sit for about 4hrs. When i was ready to put it on i put newspaper everywhere in my bathroom and kitchen. I put some honey and olive oil in the mixture before putting it on my hair. It was really messy since it was watery and despite the newspaper i got specks of dye on my walls and counter top, so be careful. I put a cap on my head and let it sit for an hour before rinsing it out with conditioner. It was kinda hard to get out and i still had some left after all that but it flakes out of your hair anyways. I let my hair air dry and slept with a dark towel on my pillow because it will stain your pillows and bedding. I wouldn't do this alot but maybe 2-3 times a year because it was too much. Am i happy with my results, yes. My hair was already dyed but it had a little more copper feel to it. But what i am most happiest about is how healthy my hair looked and how soft it made it. I wore a puff a couple days after, then i decided to twist my hair. I was suprised how loose my curl pattern was and when i twisted it i could actually see my length. And it seemed like i flat ironed it because it was so much easier to get through. I put pictures below to show my process.
