At the ripe age of 17 I decided it would be a great idea to colour my hair jet black and blue…
Considering my hair was so light naturally, this was a silly idea indeed! That dye ruined my hair and then began the long process of getting it back to my original colour. For around three years my hair was in terrible condition and snapped off leaving awful split ends so this has led to me staying far away from hair dyes.
I was in my favorite health store when I came across this strange packaging.
100% plant-based hair colouring comes in a strange turmeric looking powder. Claims to add radiant highlights and lustre to your hair. contains no oxidants or ammonia. Fades in 4-6 washes. My hairs been feeling weak of late and lacking body so I thought I’d give it a try.
Each packet comes complete with Henna colouring cream, gloves and a shower cap. You will need a comb and a towel, Also cover the floor under you in newspaper because this stuff is messy! Allow up to an hour from start to finish depending on the depth of colour you desire.
empty the entire packet of powder into a plastic container, add hot water and mix with a spoon until you have a paste. Drape towel over your shoulders, pop on your latex gloves and begin working the product through from roots to ends, making sure to achieve even coverage. Leave on for 30 mins then rinse with cool water.
My hair felt matted at first but once I’d used my de tangling spray all was well.
I let my hair dry naturally so have a little wave going on today. My hair definitely feels softer and healthier on the ends. Not sure if my hair looks darker or not…
I will have to update you when I’ve styled my hair. I can’t notice much of a difference but I my hair feels stronger and thicker. You can find Henne hair colour HERE
