I wanted to quickly check-in and let you know that (1) I had an excellent henna experience the other day… the color is richer and shinier and the volume is turned up, (2) I wore my previously CurlFormer stretched hair in 11 twists for 2 days before releasing it to reveal the style below, (3) I skipped the flexi rods and pin curled just the ends of each twist using a little conditioner and a bobby pin, and (4) using a very minimal amount of Treasured Locks Argan oil left me with a soft, touchable, shiny set. I got a little frizz thanks to Hurricane Irene but it was the good kind.
Flash for texture and color… can you see the henna?!
what brand of henna did you use for this treatment
Just FYI, If you plan to ever chemically color your hair, then DO NOT HENNA. I went to the salon this weekend and it was a nightmare. My stylist told me that I could I lost all of my hair (b/c I forgot to tell her I did a henna treatment a month ago). My hair turned green a little, but it did not smoke or fall out. She managed to save my hair, and it turned out nice. So if you ever plan to add color, DO NOT HENNA.
i love the color the henna brings to your hair. almost like a deep burgandy. Sucks for me because mine is more of an auburn color that i'm not too fund of. Kind of makes my hair look dry, but even still, i love the way it makes my hair feel.
I totally took advantage of the hurricane. I henna'd my hair with Jamila & Giovanni condish. Left it on for 8 hrs. Washed out then applied AOHSR. Rinsed then applied kimmaytube leave-in consisting of shea moisture treatment mask, aloe vera juice & castor and jojoba oils. Then i did a TnC. Yes…it was a lovely day.
Looks great! I had a henna session yesterday 🙂 Added indigo tho and not doing that again. Don't like it.
GASP – are you wearing… lipgloss?
I don't see a lot of definition this time around. Still looks great though.
Very nice! Peeping that henna! Missed ur hair updates!
I agree…you do have the good kind of frizz going on! I am awaiting my henna order right now, and I can't wait to try it.
Nice full hair…
Have a question, the hair that sits on the back of my neck stays dry, what can i do to change that?
Misses seeing pics of your hair journey, and is so glad this post was done today! Thanks Nikki!
Your hair is soooooo Beautiful. I have been applying henna treatments for about a month now weekly. I love the results but Im gonna slow the treatments way down, I hardly have any curl pattern any more. My hair is fine but I can say the henna has strengthened it tremendously. How often do you do henna treatments?
Your post the other day ispired me. I did a henna treatment today, deep conditioned and am now stretching in 4 braids with kimmaytubes leave in conditioner. My hair feels great! I plan to do a braid out and wear it bunned up for the week.
Your hair looks great!
Thanks for the pics! Please continue to post pics of your henna treatments it will be great to see the difference as time goes on.
Ooooh! Your hair looks awesome! How are you and the crew holding up with Irene?
