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.
Your hair is beautiful, did you use neutral henna and if so how long did you leave it in. Also I would like to know what do you do with your hair at nite. My hair length in the back is adjacent to the length in the front which is past my collar bone, and I have a great deal of shrinkage, my hair shrinks all the back up to my neck not even shoulder length. Do you think it shrinks really bad because at nite I just lay down on it at nite? Do you think if I started putting four plaits in my hair before I go to bed might help? Do you Fotki? If not firstname.lastname@example.org
Gorgeous hair..do you have a fotki album?
