I'm transitioning to natural and will BC soon. But first I want to use henna to color my gray roots. My hair is black with several gray roots. Can someone make a suggestion? I also hope Henna will thicken my thin sides too
Hi i'm new to trying Henna, will be doing my first one next saturday. I am sure this question has been asked before but I can't find it.
I want to use henna about once every other month more for the conditioning than the color. But I read that Cassia is great for conditioning as well. Should I use Cassia once a month or should I use it the months that I don't use henna?
So I have another question. I have recently started to use a homemade concoction for my hair (I started last month) which consists of coconut cream, yogurt, a little molasses, and a little coconut oil. I put this in my hair for a few hours and then rinse it out. It makes my hair super soft and just overall nice :D. I just wanted to make sure that if I am doing this as well as putting henna in my hair (my first henna treatment was last Friday) that I am not overloading my hair with protein.
I'm ordering another round of henna... I wanted to buy the materials separately isntead of buying a kit. Since I've already henna'd once, and have color, which henna should I get? Should I stick with the Ancient Sunrise? If so, which one should I get? The one for African hair doesn't cover gray as well as others, but what other choices do I have? Celebration is sold out.
I'm going for a dark color, not bright, like red or orange.
Should I just buy the kit? HaHa
Is adding cocoa powder to my henna mix going to make any difference? I've also heard that buxus will give a more brownish result. I'm trying to cover some gray hairs (but I don't want red streaks) and add a rich brownish cast. I've also tried indigo with okay results, but the gray parts still looked reddish to me. So what's the difference between adding cocoa powder, buxus or indigo to get richer, browner highlights?
HI! I'm interested in using Henna to add a little color to my virign, relaxed hair but not sure which kit to get. I've done a good bit of research and read posts on this site and am still a bit confused. From my understanding, henna cannot lighten dark hair (or am I wrong?), but I kind of want a cinnamon type color for my naturally dark brown (aburnish) hair.
I have naturally dark brown/light black hair but I want jet back hair...how should I go about the process of getting jet black hair? Do I even need the henna or can I just use indigo? I dont want to lighten or go red with my hair at all if I don't need to. So help please
I bought the Celebration henna and love it! It is very smooth and washes out very well. I just did an application yesterday that I left on overnight (9-10 hours). I washed it out this morning. It's so hot today that I thought about going for a swim.
My question is: How long must one wait to go swimming after henna?
Okay, so I henna'd my hair on Saturday - the process was pretty easy, just time consuming. I followed the instructions, sectioned my hair before I started, and took my time. I had A LOT of mix left over and I really did pile it in my hair!
My dark brown hair is a deep, dark, brown and very pretty! I'm not good with naming colors, but the white/grey hair isn't orange, it's a gold-ish, red-ish, gold-ish color... does that make sense? My hair is about 50% grey, so that's a lot of goldish color! Ha Ha
My curl pattern wasn't affected - thanks amla!
I got my henna today... but there are 2 packs of indigo - do I use them both? It seems like a lot.
