I finally got around to doing this!
There has been water rationing going on in my home area and that just dissuaded me from hennaing my hair. Well, that, and laziness. My last henna treatment was around 9 weeks ago.
Anyway, on Monday, the water issue was sorted out so i went ahead and did an oil prepoo followed by a henna treatment. My hair had was a little dry last week hence the oil prepoo. Henna generally leaves my hair feeling rough/dry/hard so i just wanted to cushion it from all that.
I kept the henna in my hair for about 12 hours, till yesterday morning (that was unintentional), then did a 45 minute deep conditioning treatment afterwards. I had to leave the house by 9:30 so i didn’t have much time to spend on my hair. I just put it in a low bun and let it dry throughout the day.
