Graduated from Henna Glosses

If anyone recalls my first few Henna treatments, I always mixed in Conditioner and only added about 1-2 table spoons of Henna, which made them a Henna Gloss.

 I no longer mix in Conditioner and now do full blown Henna Treatments.

Here is my Mix:
150 G of Henna
Enough Black Tea to make a yogurt consistency
1 Egg (for Protein)
1 Tablespoon of Castor Oil

I apply in sections using an applicator brush to get my roots and demarcation line really well
Once completely applicated, pull hair up then apply a plastic bag over head
Keep in overnight
Rinse
Rinse
Rinse
and Rinse Some more in my sink
Then I shampooed with diluted Black Soap
Then I applied a moisturizing deep conditioner(Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose) mixed with some oils in sections
Kept that on for about 2.5 hours then washed out.

My hair was really soft, yet strong after. At first I was scared of doing full Henna Treatments because some complained about breakage after doing so, but the key is to follow up with a Moisturizing DC.


I recently stumbled on Karishma Henna at an Indian Grocery store near my parents house and I must say I like this Henna. I only paid $2 for a bag of 150G, so I got a pretty good deal.
BUT any Henna that is Body Art Quality will work JUST AS WELL!
Contains Pure Henna, Amla, Shikakai, ARITHA,BHRINGRAJ and selected
Herbs as described in Century old Indean Vedas. Regular use of
Karishma Herbal Henna, Darkens Hair, acts as natural Hair
Conditioner, Controls Dandruff & prevents Hair loss. Due to natural
cooling effect of the herbs used it improves eyesight and gives sound
sleep.


While applying, I ran out of some. I was like scraping for some henna, hence the little bit of black hair you see.

  1. Congrats on 'graduating'!!!

    Cassia is my alternative to henna since I don't want my hair to change color (unless it's going DARKER!!)

    Girl, I feel you on that. I've been eyeing Cassia, but because Henna is more easy for me to get..I obted for that.
