First, I would like to thank you for sharing you knowledge and experience with Henna with everyone. Your pictures and information are invaluable.
Okay, here is my testimonial:
My original reason for seeking out Henna was for color. I have been natural for 2 years plus and have always wanted color without the chemicals. So, I was on the Nappturality website under Forums and saw a piece on Henna – the coloring/conditioning effects. It was really interesting reading everyone’s experience, as each person is different. So, I continued to do my own research….. Then I saw CurlyNikki’s website and clicked on it…..and all I could say was WOW!!!! Her hair was BEAUTIFUL, so then I read, and read, and read some more and was amazed on what Henna could do for the hair. It is used to make the hair more conditioned/ stronger, and the color is just a nice side effect. So, I followed her recommendations exactly as instructed (i.e. Jamila Henna from Mehandi.com (200 gm)….and I used the entire 200 gm…LOL….1.5-2 cups of green tea and 3 tablespoons of Honey. Now, I actually let mine sit about 12 hours, so I could do a pre-test on some loose hair that I acquired from my brush. And, the color and the results were amazing. So, around 5pm that day, I proceeded to do my entire head and let it sit for about 15 hours (long time I know – but I wanted the best results I could get)…. In the morning I rinsed, conditioned (as instructed by Nikki), and did a Twist-n-Curl set. IT WAS WONDERFUL. The Henna conditioned, relaxed my curl slightly, gave a great shine and a hint of red color…. I LOVED IT. So, I have already put in my next order and it has only been 2 days. In closing, I just want to thank Nikki for this wonderful website and I have been spreading the word to all of my natural friends. Continue to post your beautiful pictures and share you wonderful hair advice. Talk to you soon.
