Stevie’s Henna Journey
I have been coloring my hair “red” with all natural henna for almost 6 years now. I used to have dirty blond going brown hair and it was always a long tangled mess (my hair used to be a little more than half way down my back). Now my hair is so soft and shiny, plus I love the color. The shade and brightness of color depend on how long I leave it in as well the lighting of the day. As well, all photo representations vary due to flash or the surrounding lighting.
-Use 2 boxes of henna powder. Typically Jamila.
-Mix boiling water into powder until brownie batter consistency.
-Mix in 3-5 drops of Lavender essential oil.
-Leave to cool between 45 mins -1 hour.
-With gloves I apply to head in handfuls starting at the roots and covering them as best as possible while moving to the ends.
-Pile all hair on top of head and wipe off any excess from skin on forehead, ears, neck…
-Wrap with plastic bag and let sit for 2 hours minimum.
