did henna again
I finally got around to doing henna again. It had grown out about 4 inches and faded. I used the henna for African hair again. I really like it a lot. This time, I didn’t have the opportunity to mix it up and let it set overnight, so I put it near the heater and left it about two and a half hours, then put it on my hair. It was late in the evening when I did this, so I left it on while I slept and rinsed it out in the morning. I liked doing that, as long as it doesn’t leak out. I mixed it up pretty thick. It makes it harder to get into the hair, but at least it doesn’t run down my neck and around my ears. Another new thing I did was add some ginger root powder. One tablespoon per 100 grams is supposed to basically eliminate the henna odor. I used 500g but only had 4tbsp of ginger. It didn’t eliminate the odor, but it improved it.
And…. I have enough left for maybe a couple root touch-ups too!
