Not all henna is created equally

Not all henna is created equally

Not all henna powders are created equally. There are blends, henna hair colors, hair quality and even fake henna. It honestly makes it near impossible to choose what might work best for you. We do believe there will be some trial and error in the whole process but it shouldn’t be so complicated. Henna Blends This is found often times in your local Indian or Middle Eastern store. Sometimes even online. A henna blend would be where the henna is in the ingredients listed but there may be several other herbs in this mix. Blends are not ideal for coloring because they dilute the main ingredient that produce the color which is the henna powder. A lot of blends are also sitting on the shelves for more then a year or so at a time typically. So they aren’t typically very fresh. Freshness is important similarly to you cooking with fresh herbs. You also get better results. Henna Hair Colors The most confusing and misleading product in the henna marketplace. Henna is being sold as colors when in fact henna is not a range of colors. Henna is a plant that produces only a reddish tinted dye/stain. A plant naturally does not make two colors. There are no types of hennas. Henna is a single plant of it’s kind.

Sisterhood and Healing: What I learned this weekend

Sisterhood and Healing: What I learned this weekend

It began with all white. Honestly all white?! Man. Talk about going out of my comfort zone. It’s not that I don’t love other colors (yes I love black!). I know many of you have seen me rocking some beautiful colors. It’s just that my black hijab is so comfy and I don’t have variations in colors in that style. Yes, I’m going to get more made but until then I had to figure things out. There were definitely little whispers in my ear challenging me to attend. I was nervous to be putting myself in a situation where I told myself I wouldn’t have expectations but I’m not going to lie to myself, I had ideas floating in my mind, whispering to me and my own insecurities. I told those whisperings that today is going to be my day with my sisters, in all their glory and beauty. To be surrounded by so much radiant energy and positive vibes. To embrace an experience that could potential be life changing. To connect with like minded people. This is what I needed. Perhaps not only what I needed but it was meant for me to cross paths with someone there and be there for them in some way or another. I believe every encounter is not by chance but by destiny. At the Goddess...
