Am 7 weeks post relaxer today!
By the way, my braid-out…it didn’t make it to day 2. I ended up putting my hair up in a bun. This bun…
Anyway, I finally got a chance to henna my hair last evening . I wasn’t really up to it but i knew that if i didn’t do it then, i wouldn’t do it anytime soon. My last henna treatment was about 5 weeks ago.
As usual, i did an oil prepoo using coconut oil for a few hours as i waited for my henna paste to set
This was the consistency of the paste. Not too thin, not too thick.
If your paste is too thin/runny, the application process is going to be very messy because you’ll have henna dripping all over the place. If its too thick on the other hand, you will have trouble getting it throughout your hair. You will feel as if your hair is not properly coated. Your hair will just clump together.
Am not always able to mix it like this so am glad it came out perfectly. I was actually cooking…waiting for some rice to cook and i thought why not go henna my hair quickly then get back. And thats what i did. I just put on my gloves and hennaed my hair 😀
I rinsed off the henna 6 hours later (i think). By then, it was past midnight – I was catching up on some new T.V series (Graceland, Under the dome, Twisted, Crossing lines, Ray Donovan – Anyone else watching these?) I then proceeded with the deep conditioning step and fell asleep soon after.
When i woke up, i just rinsed off the deep conditioner, applied my products and styled my hair.
