Hair Tip of the Day- The Henna Edition

By January 27th, 20213 Comments

When you do your henna treatment, do you clarify your hair first? I co-wash twice a week, and I believe the ones (condish) have some cones in them. Is it necessary to clarify or poo first before you do a henna treatment?

Many women on the forum poo before henna’ing, especially if they’re trying to cover grays (less gunk for the dye to have to penetrate through). During my last 2 treatments I poo’ed (haha) with Giovanni Tea Tree prior to henna‘ing and didn’t notice much of a difference. Maybe you should do the same- try it both ways. Shampooing never hurts, just be sure to DT with a very VERY moisturizing conditioner afterward…a clarifying poo, plus the stripping action from the henna can lead to hay stack city. Proceed with caution.

Is Dulhan replacing your Personal Stash Jamila from

Hells no :) However, when I’m broke and have time to rinse fifty ‘leven times, I’m all for Dulhan. I’ll be using Dulhan to supplement my stash…to stretch my Jamila further.

    Hey Nikki,

    I have to say henna treatment have made a big differnce for me. My first I used rajasthani henna, the second I mixed ayur rajasthani with reshma and lemon zinger tea bags instead of black tea bags. My twistout fro stands up all day now, this was a big problem for me before. I don’t have to make 12 trips to the restroom to fluff me fro. I’m happy with the color and fullness, henna for life for me.

    Hey Nikki, I understand what you are saying about the Dulhan and Jamila henna. The first time I used henna, it was the Dulhan brand and it was a little difficult to get out, but I ordered the Jamila henna from the hennaforhair website and I tried it out yesterday and I give it a thumbs up, because it was not hard to rinse out at all and my hair is super duper soft. i will also continue to use Dulhan henna, but it will only be used when I don’t have any more of the Jamila brand.
