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:
