I did a henna gloss this weekend and I am beyond in love with the results. The other day I was looking in the freezer for something and remembered that I still had somne henna paste from October so I did a little research to see if it was still good to use and most of what I saw said that the henna would actually leave a better stain. So I mixed it with about a cup of conditioner (TJ Nourish) and left it on my hair overnight. I guess I didn't tie the plastic bags on tight enough because I woke up the next morning with some henna on my hands lol. It was such a breeze to wash it out I only need to rinse for 20 minutes instead of my usual 45 minutes to an hour when I use just henna. I still felt that the henna gloss left my hair feeling stronger. I can say that I plan to do these henna glosses more often and hope to get another one in within the next month or so. The pic below is my hair this morning after taking my braids out I used the same 12 braids as usual on damp hair in four sections.
P.S. Have any of you Curlies done a henna gloss? Please share your comments, tips and recipes below! :)
Last week I started the take down of my last set of twists and let me tell yall it was horrific. I had tangles and knots it took forever (well three days). Once I got them all out I decided to wash my hair and then do a pre-poo since I planned on doing my next round of henna. See the first pic of my bun below I used castor and olive oil and that was the best it softened my hair and helped get rid of the tangles I had left over. I used Karishma henna this time and made it as before with hibiscus tea and powder and of course lemon juice. I left the henna mix in over night and once I rinised I noticed the strength and shine I have been missing. Overall, I love the results that Karishma gave me and at the price of 1.99 from my local Indian store I will be a repeat user( well once I finish my supply of Nupar henna off lol). On another note, as much as I love my mini twists as a protective style I think that next time I will not do them so small and make sure that I have worn my hair stretched for a few days those tangles almost brought me to tears.
