And I’m back… after a 9 month hiatus! I stopped henna’ing around 6 months pregnant due to fatigue and lack of time. After G Babes came along, time got even tighter and since henna is such an all consuming process, I put it on the back burner. After a family walk (yes, I exercised today!), I decided to pull two boxes of Jamila out of the freezer. I went back and forth for 2 hours and finally decided to mix it up! I see therapy clients tomorrow morn, so I had to do my abbreviated treatment- – 4 hours with heat as opposed to overnight.
200g of Jamila Henna
2 cups of near boiling water
1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar (because I was out of tea)
2 tablespoons of Honey
I mixed it up, covered, and proceeded to detangle my dry hair using the tangle teezer, twisting as I went. I put on plastic gloves, and applied the henna to one section at a time, untwisting the section prior to the application. I layered it on thick, put on a plastic cap, a scarf, and finally my micro heat cap.
I’m on my way to rinse, deep treat, and twist! Just thought I’d share 🙂
