Abbreviated Henna Glosses and Curly Fros

rolled them twists all the way up tho... 
Hola Chicas,

I've managed to henna three times in the last 2 months which is rare ish due to my schedule, the Boogs and the general lethargy.  Before these consecutive treatments, I was getting it in maybe, MAYBE once every three months and due to my genes, the grays were getting quite rude.  With no time to dedicate to full henna treatments, I knew there had to be another way and of course, necessity is the mother of invention.

Henna Gloss: A Quicker, Easier Way to Henna Your Natural Hair

by Shelli of Hairscapades

 As most of you know, I am a henna head. I have been doing henna treatments since 2010, though I’ve modified how and how often I do them over the years. I started with full strength, full length treatments every 2-4 weeks. But for the last several years, I have been doing full strength on my roots only and a “faux” gloss (i.e. dye released henna mixed into lots of conditioner) on my length. But, the time between my sessions has gotten longer and longer … every 4 weeks, every 6, every 8, now I’m lucky if I do it once every three months!! Well, about a month and a half ago, I was really in need of a henna treatment as my grey roots were out of control. I also love how smooth my hair is after a henna treatment; my hair styles post henna are always so shiny and sleek. But, I had absolutely nooooooooo desire to do a full strength treatment as it usually takes the good part of a day to complete (see My Two Step Henna-Indigo Process for details). Between prepping, washing, detangling, application, marinating, rinsing with water, applying indigo, marinating again, rinsing with loads of conditioner, deep conditioning, marinating one more time rinsing, and styling … yeah, that’s an 8 hour plus process. It just was not happening. But then I thought, “You know what? I’ll do a true henna gloss!!” I figured I could get some of the conditioning benefits of henna and maybe a little color, without all the muss and fuss … and time!

Henna Tips and Tricks for Natural Hair

by Michelle of Radiant-Brown-Beauty

I’ve been a henna head for a little over two years now. I was first introduced to henna when I joined Kim Coles Grow Out Challenge co-sponsored by Curly Nikki and hosted by NaturallyCurly.com a few years ago. At the time, I was on a serious hunt for ways to thicken up my puny strands (sorry fine haired ladies, you may not consider yours puny but mine certainly are).

When I first started using henna I didn’t see the big whoop but so many henna heads swore by its goodness I had to press forward to see what benefits my hair would receive from regular applications. Fast forward and my strands are not only healthier but I’ve found the best way to cover up all these grays that are popping up all over my 44 year old head!

Some of what I discovered may be unique to my hair but it may also be useful to you when you do your henna applications. Let’s get right to it.

My Abbreviated Henna Routine 2013

Hola Chicas,

So I had the henna on deck yesterday and after multiple FB inquiries, thought I'd share the deets of my current mix.  It's pretty much the same as the routine I've always done, sans 2 trips to the shower.  #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat #DoPeopleStillSayThat
