I bit the bullet and used my Henna!

I just wanted to say that this is THE BEST COLOR I've ever had, and I've done more reds, browns, non-descripts than I care to admit! I've had the products all ready to go for a couple of months, but was so concerned with the mess and the tangling (chamomile and rooibos tea, folks), that I put it off. Finally, last Friday after I put the kiddos to bed, I placed everything out orderly, did my mix, clarified my hair, slapped it on, wrapped myself up like leftovers and slept in it. I even did my brows, but chickened out-got up at 4am to wash my eyebrows off, but I still have a wonderful auburnish tint to them. No stains (can't say enough about Sally's ear cover/protector thingys), no major mess, easy...And no curl loss at all. I will probably do another full head application, and just roots and/or gloss going forward. Thanks for letting me share.:toothy7:

    Glad you're pleased with the results! Funny you should post this because my teacher mentioned Henna last night in my haircoloring class. My first thought was Lucy carrying out giant jugs of the stuff to throw out the window when she thought the the apartment building was on fire. :tongue3:

    I'm so glad it worked well for you! It took me ages to bite the bullet too, but I'm glad I did.

    Yes, do tell....what's the beauty teacher's opinion of henna?

    She was telling a story of a woman who used it. I guess what it does is coat the hair shaft, more and more with each use (permanent dyes actually penetrate to the core) and it makes it really hard for permanent hair dye to get through. So basically they don't play well together.
