I know it has been forever, actually I'm not even sure how long it has been since I used henna...but I'm back. I whipped up my mix last Thursday and the applied it Friday night. I used the usual of course henna, green tea and lemon juice. I left it in overnight and then set large twists on soaking wet hair. Last night I rolled the twists on flexirods and then took them down this morning. The result...smooth and bouncy curls. I pineappled it tonight and then plan on washing again in a few days.
