Wash Day Chronicles: 15th April 2017 – Henna Day!

Wash day saturday was a little different as I decided to apply Henna!

Henna is a plant that has been around for ages and is known for its natural properties- hello natural dye!!!

Henna is an excellent substitute if your hair is protein sensitive- it dries out hair also so you must follow with moisturizing products!

Henna Day…hair we go!

  • The night before my treatment, I mixed Henna with hot water, a dash of Cinnamon and lemon juice (you need an acidic substance to activate the mix and I like the smell of lemon in my hair).
  • Next step involved mixing into a thick paste and covering the bowl with clin film overnight.

Yay Henna!!!

  • The following day, I rinsed hair in lukewarm water (2 parts hot, 1 part cold) before my prepoo to open my pores and clear mini product build up.
  • Then I applied Petals Instant Conditioner, ZL Natural Oil mix with Carrot and ZL Onion Oil Blend to my scalp and hair for a super moisturizing pre-shampoo.

Hiss after 3.5 hours still no color na wa o

I know you’re meant to follow with a deep moisture treatment but after my Henna application I was tired anyho my hair felt stronger despite the minimal color lift.
You can henna your hair as many times as possible- I will keep trying till I get my burgundy hair color naturally.
Hope enjoyed my wash day chronicles: henna day post!!!
Tea, kisses and love,
