My Henna Experience

Hola Lindas!

So I told you all an an earlier post that I bought some Henna. Well I used it this weekend and I have mixed emotions lol. On one had I felt like a total complete hippie. I literally ahd mud in my hair. However, my hair does feel great today so I am gonna repeat the process again in the future. I want to say that I am gonna do it two times a month however, once a month is more realistic.  I purchased the henna from here.

First I measured out one cup of henna.


Next I added some honey to the henna.



Next I added water to make it a paste the consistancy of yorgurt. I planned on adding some green tea, however I discovered that I did not have green tea. Oh well, next time.



It smelled like a green tea, herby, plant like substance. I can't even believe I put this on my hair lol. I was totally grossed out at this point but I felt I had to continue.


Here is an up close pic of the henna in my hair.



So I put it on and let it sit for about three hours. I actually took a nap. I did not sleep well though. Then I got up and rinsed it out my hair. I have to admit that my hair felt thicker and moisturized after I rinsed the henna out and put some conditioner on. Next time I want to use green tea and also leave it in overnight. I will probably do it next week when I am off work for fall break.

So what has been your henna experience? Do you all have any tips for me?

  1. Heeeye I just put henna on my hair about 2 weeks ago! I love it! It gave my hair a subtle brown tint. I did it for the color since I'd never dyed my hair. I like how subtle but definite it is.
    I didn't realize until I purchased the henna that it was actually supposed to be a great conditioner. But I can't really tell about the conditioning effects. My hair actually felt a bit dryer than usual. Like I needed to oil it my often. What about you? Has yours maintained this moisture and how often will you do the process?
