Most naturals have heard about henna, which is known as an alternative and natural way to dye natural hair. Chemese Armstrong, a lifestyle blogger based Texas, chose to try henna because she is allergic to paraphenylenediamine (or PPD), an commercial dye that is found in more than two-thirds of hair dyes on the market.


Tips To Slay Your First Henna Gloss Treatment

by Jensine from youtube.com/junglenaps

This winter, I decided to do something a little out of my comfort zone. I finally decided to commit to my first henna gloss treatment. For those that don't know, a henna gloss treatment is a milder, more moisturizing version of a full henna treatment. It incorporates the addition of a protein-free conditioner to your henna mix and yields kinky curls that are stronger and shinier than before. As an added bonus, you have complete control over how much color you want in your hair. You can leave it in for as long or as little as you like. However, the longer you leave it in, the more noticeable the results will be.

Hola Chicas!

So y'all got questions, huh?  

My recent henna post initiated a gang of them and so I'm taking to the blog to respond publicly for the benefit of everyone! 

Why do you henna? What has your experience been like?
I started henna'ing to beef up my situation. My strands are nearly transparent. Like, very VERY almost disrespectfully fine and quite fragile.  When I'm on my henna game for real (once a month), my hair is shinier and stronger.  It's less prone to breakage and splitting and the overall health of my hair is improved.  I also experience a smoother texture with less shrinkage.  The red glow is ridic and it gives me the big hair look, I couldn't otherwise achieve.
