I’ve always loved the idea of henna. I have several friends who have absolutely stunning hair color due to henna. I picked their brains endlessly and for Christmas, I got two boxes of Henna of my very own! I finally had some time to pay attention to me and played with it.
So here is a (incredibly hideous, I am so sorry!) picture of me before any color.
It was super easy to mix up and really even apply it. It was a bit different than what I am used to but once I got the hang of it, it went by pretty quickly. I should have taken pictures but I was so engrossed in not slinging henna all over the place, I completely forgot.
This is what I had after letting it sit for 2.5 hours.
I wasn’t prepared for the blond color and wanted something a little deeper so I gave it another shot and put in more henna and let it sit for 5 hours.
The picture is not even close to demonstrating just how bright the color came out, especially in my grey area. I was quite taken back and had to chuckle but it left me with a solid conclusion: henna is not for me! So off to Sally’s we went and I picked up a bottle of color. After some debating, I decided to go back to my dark locks so I picked up Age Beautiful’s Darkest Plum Brown.
It came out gorgeous and I will probably do another run of color in a couple weeks to even up the bang area since that is the worst of my grey.
But all in all, I am glad for the experience and I gained knowledge so it wasn’t a total waste but at least I know now that I am not meant for henna! But I love the new look and got a lot of compliments when I went into the office today!
