everything I've learned about growing, maintaining, styling, and loving long hair

red hair

Getting ready to henna my hair today!  Did you know that Lucille Ball (known for her blazing red hair) was not a natural redhead?  According to ChaCha, Lucy described her own natural hair as mousy brown.  She used henna to die it red!

from BellaSugar.com:

“…She colored her hair blonde as a starlet in the 1930s and 1940s. To look better in front of the television camera, she dyed it red and often wore a wig on the set. She stayed with that hue from the 1950s onward. (She once joked that she was keeping the economy of Egypt afloat with her annual orders of henna.)”
