It is well past time for me to henna again. If I am on my game I should be doing it every 6 – 8 weeks. I started using henna about a year ago when I was looking for a natural way to color my hair. The coloring became secondary when I saw how much it enhanced my hair in other ways. My hair appeared to be shinier. The treatment seemed to make it appear darker but tinted in the light and it also appeared to be thicker. The deep conditioning like effects that I got from the henna far outweighed my desire for colored hair and is now part of my regimen. The very 1st time I used henna from Lush called Caca Rouge. Here is the video from that application:
The last time I did a treatment I tried it a different way. This time I used Jamila Henna and a recipe from a fellow blogger @NaturalByL of Natural Review By L The recipe called for Henna, Coconut Milk, Apple Cider Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
It was a simple blend and this is the consistency of what it looked like blended together.
I applied it the same way for both methods. I used EO Chamomile & Lemon w/Honey conditioner to rinse it all out after 4 hours.
Overall, I think both techniques for the treatment are effective and beneficial for my hair. There were no dramatic changes in the color for either method. The ingredients for the Jamila Henna method were more economical and easier to obtain. I have to go to the mall or order the Lush on line and it is pricey.
Do you henna? If so, whats your method?
