Nikki,

I rinsed out the henna this morning. I only did it for the conditioning, and I’m impressed. The curl is definitely looser, but that’s okay with me. The smell doesn’t bother me at all.

I thought I’d just drop a note to you because I had to admit to my girlfriend as I had henna piled all over my head that I didn’t actually *know* the woman who had given me all this great natural hair advice. I’ve been natural since 1994 and have definitely found your site helpful. Naturallycurly.com — which is where I found a link to your blog — has helped me find stylists, but I think I’m done with that part of my life. I’m onto search and destroys and other such things. Your site is wonderful, and I don’t know if I would have ever done the henna without your video and other information.

Thanks so much.

Monique
