Please post your Thursday Sharing for June 10 into this thread!

Thank you all in advance for sharing!

When you can, post a url for your picture rather than hotlinking the picture.... there are several reasons for this:

Many people have limited bandwidth. If a hotlink pops their picture up every time some opens the thread, they may quickly exceed their bandwidth, and then nobody gets to see their picture.

Its nice to see your picture in the context of the rest of your work!

The page will open more quickly for everyone if the sharing is done with text links rather than hotlinks.

Pics of henna

Hi!

I wanted to post some pics of two henna applications for fun, and also to get some feedback.

My client's first pic shows mostly white roots with ends a faded golden chemical color.

This pic is after a 3 hour application of Yemen henna (about 20% indigo added)

This pic is 10 days oxidation.  A little browner/less gold.

Looking for a short Henna Info Sheet to hand out

Hello,

My daughter and I have fallen in love with henna. We are going to apply small henna designs as part of a fundraiser for our Relay for Life team during the R4L walk this Friday. We have henna and gilding paste and glitter gel for the little ones. I'd like to have a small info sheet to give people about the henna, how to care for it and to run screaming away from anyone offering BLACK henna.

Does anyone have something like this they'd be willing to share, or is there a stock one to buy? If I don't have to recreate the wheel I'd rather not. I tend to drone on and on.....

Indigo Shelf Life

I found some Indigo in the back ( way back ) of my freezer.  It is still in the package, but I do not know how long the shelf life is.. Will it still leave a stain??? 

First time henna user

Hello

 I did just the very front of my hair because I am starting to get gray hairs around my edges. After having it on for an hourI I washed it out. About 15 minutes after washing it out I got a massive headache. I did this yeaterday evning and I still have the headache.  I just took something for the headache to see if it goes away. Does anyone no why it caused me to get a headache.

2 step henna-indigo touch up

Hi- Can anyone offer any advice on doing the 2 step henna indigo touch-up for about 2 inches of grey and lighter brown roots?  I've always re-done my whole head before but wanted to try to see if I could extend the time before that was needed. My grey is pretty stubborn so I don't think a henna-indigo mix would do the trick...

Newbie with a few questions! *Updated*

Hi everyone,

I'm new to henna and strongly considering trying it for the first time.  I've been dying my hair (naturally a medium brown) for about ten years, and dying it red for the past four.  My hair has a tendency to be dry/damaged and I've decided that I've had enough with chemical dyes (not to mention that red dye fades so quickly that it requires more frequent touch ups.

I currently have about two inches of brown roots, and the rest is a faded coppery red/brown.

***Can anyone help me??***

I had purchased online henna powder and indigo powder.. problem is they both came in 1 packet mixed in together.. how can I mix acidic liquid in the henna? I did research but couldnt find anything.

This is a blend of: Lawsonia inermis (86%) and Indigo (14%) powders. Its a green powder with a tea/grass smell.  Can anyone help me.. thanks for any replies.

Advice please! Trying to help a neighbor

Ok, here's the situation. My next door neighbor very recently bleached her hair blonde, and it turned out orangeish on the lenght, lighter blond at the top and greenish by the roots. Pretty much fried the last two inches of her hair as well. She has only bleached the top layer of her hair, with the bottom layer being darkest brown from a previous chemical dye. She is also about 7 months pregnant. I offered to help her fix it- I have just enough henna, amla, and indigo left to help her get back to darkest brown, if I do a 1part henna, 1part amla, and 2 parts indigo ratio.
