Hola Chicas!

First of all…I’m watching Kanye on VH1 StoryTellers….HOTTNESS!!! He’s a friggin genius. Period.

As I sit here typing, I have a head full of deep conditioner, in the form of Aussie Moist+Aubrey Honey Suckle Rose. In order to accurately judge the quality of Dulhan henna for you gorgeous curlies, I did an overnight treatment with Dulhan only…no Jamila. In the past, I’ve been very disappointed after wasting my energy and time on poor quality henna. It takes a lot of time to mix, apply, and rinse that ish…and to not get the conditioning effects after allllll of that effort…not cool.

I mixed up two boxes of Dulhan, with a little less than 2 cups of green tea, and a bit of honey. Unlike Rainbow brand at Whole Foods, it doesn’t have twigs, dirt, and leaf bits in it. I was pleased with the smell, color, and overall look. Like Jamila, the dye released immediately. I showered, detangled and applied around midnight this morning. The consistency of the paste after adding the honey was slightly grittier than Jamila, and not as easy to apply. I rinsed around 11:30am and that was no easy task. There was definitely still henna in my hair as I applied the DT. I’ll try to get it all out when I rinse in a few hours. All in all, I give it two thumbs up. It’ll definitely be incorporated into my routine. As it stands, I have two options:

Option 1:

  • Henna bi-weekly or monthly depending on my mood
  • Mix to include 100g Jamila+ 100g Dulhan

Option 2

  • Henna bi-weekly or monthly depending on my mood
  • Mix alternates between 200g of Jamila and 200g of Dulhan

Both options help me to supplement my Holy Grail of hennas, Jamila.

Bottom Line: For $1.99 Dulhan definitely holds it’s own. I will definitely re-purchase and use it to help my more expensive Jamila go farther. Although it’s harder to apply and rinse, the conditioning effects are on par. I likey πŸ™‚
