Henna update – Jan 2014

On Friday night I used coconut oil to do an oil prepoo treatment.

I did lots of oil, braided and wrapped it for the night

I also made a henna paste using Nupur henna which I applied to my hair the following day at around 6am.

I don’t usually rinse off the oil, I just apply the henna on tip of it. Left it on till 3pm.

I then deep conditioned on damp (towel-dried) hair for about 2 hours. In the pic below you can see that i hadn’t rinsed off the henna properly but that didn’t bother me. I just made sure my final rinse was thorough.

I henna’d my hair at 4 weeks post relaxer – 7 weeks since my last treatment (1st Dec 2013)

  2. Love the look on your hair in some of these photos – it’s been interesting research going through your blog. I used to use tub fulls of henna ( red ) in my college years when I thought I was a rebel 🙂 Used to love the conditioning effect it left me with for days afterwards. Great post!
