April Henna update

Am 2 weeks 1 day post relaxer today!

This is pretty much how i’ve been wearing my hair since relaxer day.

My everyday hair

2 week old hair

I hennaed my hair yesterday and just now realized that i did it a week early (3 weeks since my last). Oh well, no harm done. Onto yesterday’s wash routine: I started off by detangling my hair in sections. Then i applied the henna paste.

henna head

My henna mix comes out differently each time. Yesterday’s was somewhat thick and it actually felt like i was carrying some weight on my head (so i decided to lie down, and ended up falling asleep 😮 )

after henna

After rinsing off the henna, i applied some deep conditioner (mixed with coconut oil and glycerin) and left it on for about an hour and a half.

deep conditioning

After rinsing off the deep conditioner, i wrapped my hair in a towel for a few minutes, then let it hang loose for a few more minutes as got ready, applied some leave-in conditioner and heat protectant (serum), then i blew it dry. I didn’t let it dry completely. The final step was putting it in a braid…

This is how i plan to keep my hair on days when am home. When going out i’ll resort to the above braidout (first pic).

  1. I love Henna Hair dye, I actually just used it for the first time last week and I am very pleased with the results. I use Morrocco Method Intl. henna because it is all natural and I actually just did a review of it earlier today.
    Great blog by the way!
