Please post your Thursday Sharing for May 20 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.

Safe alternatives to henna for a baby?

I have a lady looking for some sort of non-tradtional blessing for her baby and henna seems to be at the top of her list. I am pretty certain that henna is not great for babies and I have told her I am not willing to go that route for health reasons so we are trying to come up with something else that will work for her.

Any ideas? Has anyone else been faced with this?

 

Cheers!

Beautiful micro-braids from Aswan

This woman is wonderfully braided! I especially like the one lock that comes forward. I suspect she has silk threads woven into her hair, but without better focus, and color printing, I can't really tell.

I think she also has a chin tattoo and a forehead tattoo, though the photograph isn't as well focused as one might hope.

Gray Roots, Red Strands

I am going to apply henna/indigo to my gray roots.  However, I have some random red strands throughout--gray hairs that I henna'd and applied indigo previously, but the indigo didn't take.

I want to try again and dye these red hairs with indigo, but do I need to re-apply henna, or can i go straight to indigo?  Thx.

two tone henna

For the two tone do you just put on a thin layer or do you have to take it off after a while?  I wanted to use a paint brush to do a lighter base coat and then put the detail on with a cone.  Will that work?

Can demised henna condition hair?

I read somewere that demised henna is not useless overall, that it can still be used to condition hair even if it does not stain or stains very little. Is that really true?
