My Adventure with Henna (Part 1 Application and Anticipation)

I have a few personal habits that I plan on improving next year.  While I haven't came up with my exact list of hair resolutions and my regimen, I did decide on getting a jump start before the ball drops on 2011.

For months a bag of henna has taunted me.  I always had plans on doing a henna treatment when my hair was natural but for some reason they always ended up being postponed.  A sudden thought hit me while I was browsing through various hair blogs and websites- why not do a henna treatment.  I was in the mood to do something to my hair and henna would actually be beneficial.

Here is the link to the instructional video that I followed per CurlyNikki.com.  I pretty much followed the instructions exactly.

This is the type of henna that I used.  A member on a hair forum sent it to me along with a few other Indian products since there are not any Indian stores where I live.




This is my henna concoction after I mixed it.  Yummy-NOT!

 Originally I was going to use Motions to shampoo and condition my hair.  I'm trying to use up old products before I buy anything else.

 I ended up opting for Suave Professionals Black Raspberry and White Tea Shampoo and Conditioner for Color Treated hair.  It will be forever before I use these family sized bottles up.

 Yikes- the monster from the poopy green-shaded henna lagoon!

 My head looks like the love child of Big Worm from Friday and Lady Gaga.

 That just looks nasty.

 Fancy huh?  I decided to try Nikki's idea of putting an elastic band around the shower cap and tucking it in.

Right now I'm still sporting my henna hard hat since it has only been a few hours since application.  I plan on posting the result of my adventure with henna either tonight or tomorrow...
