More henna plant pictures

It's now a week since the first henna photos I posted. I did another round of shots this morning. It's a perfect setup. I love early mornings and our patio garden is just outside my office door on the east side of the house so I get to shoot as the sun is breaking through the trees. My favorite kind of light.

Delineating posts and comments

One of the admins asked if there is a way to make the separations between posts and comments more clear. The forum template doesn't have the striping option that you see in some other packages, but it does have a feature that wraps each post in a frame. I've turned on this option. Feel free to comment and let me know what you think.


Please post your Thursday Sharing for May 27 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.



Henna over blond highlights

I will be doing henna on a friend over brown hair that has blond highlights in it (they have been there for awhile and are growing out).  What will it end up looking like?  Auburn with red highlights?

Have you ever had a haircut so bad that ....

Have you ever had a haircut so bad that you could barely bring yourself to leave the house?

What was it like?  How did you eventually resolve the issue?


Hiding in the back seat of the Model T, looking at the world: this is what she saw

Stereoscopic images were the broadband internet connection of the early 1900's. Because of the illusion of third dimension, the people who looked at these photographic images had an impression of absolute veracity.  The viewers saw it as truth.  But ... how is truth constructed?

If a single artifact could launch a thesis, this would be that artifact, examining the hundred layers of nuance.

New to Henna wanting to cover gray hair

I have short 1/2 inch long dense tightly coiled natural hair and I want to cover my gray hair.  Just did the Big Chop! Most of the gray is on the sides with patches within my natural dark brown hair.  So, I see celebration would be the best for gray coverage...what else do I need to make my hair dark brown?  When can I condition it?  WIll that make the color fade? I like to co-wash my hair a couple of times a week. How much of everything do I need?

Thanks in advance

Lead levels in pre-Mixed henna paste, to CCJ


I was wondering if you were going to publish the results of the independent testing you have done on pre-made pastes. I have a large community here that loves that certain brand from Saudi and I would like to have the results to show them how dangerous the products can potentially be, expecially for children.

Thanks in advance, Maryam
