Henna...Indigo...BC!

These are the supplies, I ordered from the links below... The small packages are samples that were like a $1 buck each...Its great to order the samples so you can see how your hair responds to the treatment before buying in bulk...Henna is all NATURAL. =)

Don't be creeped out by the website, the images are kinda spooky but its all good. Ive always had a pleasant experience purchasing from them...They even except Paypal which is awesome.

I mixed 2 boxes of Henna, Honey, EVOO, conditioner, scented oil, and lavender for fragrance (not pictured)


It looked really gookey...the smell wasn't as overwhelming as I imagined...


Coated each strand with the mixture, from root to tip...



BEFORE::: Over processed, split ends, damaged hair.... My hair is relaxed in these photos. (pics taken approx. 3 years ago)



After Henna treatment, I clipped my ends....




I was very pleased with the results. My hair was soft, bouncy, and full of luster. One downside of the henna was that my hair was extremely thirsty afterwards. Nothing major, just had to generously oil my scalp.


A few months after the Henna I put a Cherry Cola rinse on my hair. I posted this pic to show that you can color your hair after using henna,...

The pic was taken after using Indigo...It turns your hair like a blue-black hue. Its 100% natural as well, just add water and apply!!




This pic is a request from a follower of the blog, she wanted to see how my hair looked after the BC!! This is for you girl!!! This is a month or so after cutting my hair..around 8/2008... Rockin' the Florida Evans fro!!! LOL

Wow, I never even knew about the Henna treatment. How often did you do the treatment? Can this only be done for relaxed hair or have you done it for natural hair as well? This is so great!

I used to love doing my Henna treatments! Gosh, this post brought back memories (lol). Miss those days. Gosh, your hair came out so shiny and silky!

McClain- I don't use henna often at all, for some reason it zaps the moisture from my hair. So I spread it out...I use henna for a color boost when I want to dye my hair naturally. I haven't taken pics of my before and after henna treatment on my natural hair. I will snap pics next time :) Henna makes my natural hair real coily.

Yakini- Thank you lady!! I wish henna wasn't so messy and time consuming otherwise I'd do it more often because it really does make my hair thick and healthy! I'd like to see your henna pics one day *hint*hint*! LOL!

Nyla Coils- Thank you so much!! I am so late responding, sorry I didn't see your comment!! I'm a simple gal...I dont think I could do that treatment if it wasn't super simple. :)
