Isn't it shiny? And it's soft, and curly!. I'm really happy with it. It was messy and time consuming, but I love it.

Very nice!

I'm stupidly excited about it.

That came out looking just terrific. I love the color.

thanks! I shudder to think of what color it would have been if I'd used straight henna...

That's fabulous! I'm going to have to try that soon.

If you haven't found it already, you should definitely look at hennaforhair.com -- there's a ton of great info, plus info on mixes to use to achieve different colors. My order came with a spreadsheet of colors and recipes, too.

It seems to be a bit darker today; the site did say that it would oxidize over the next couple of days. It seems to be turning into a nice dark auburn!

I should try that with my hair.

I wish I could be there to help you -- it's fun in its way. :-D

Maybe if I ever make it to Pennsic we could do it there. LOL Henna party!!

I need to do something to make my hair healthier and less tangly. I've been reading the longhair community and getting ideas, but anything that costs money will have to wait til after Giftmas since I'm broke. :(

btw..Conga Rats on the new job stuff too.

I'm not sure it's something you want to do there -- the water situation is, in a word, problematic. I'd almost be afraid that the iron content in the water would affect the dye! I'd have enough water pressure at my camp, but I wouldn't want to run that much water into the sump. It was nearly overflowing at the end of the first week as it was.

Anyway, best to do in your own bathroom where you can be nekkid and not worry about people seeing you with your head wrapped in clingfilm for 4 hours!

That being said, if you make it to Pennsic, let me know, and you can come to Margarita Night!

I was thinking bottled water, but yeah..probably not so good an idea. lol

The Pennsic thing is iffy. It's costly for us to get there. Plus the time it takes to drive up there (something like 24 hours or so straight driving)

I will do it one day. That much is for sure, just not sure when.

If you guys ever make it to Gulf War you are most welcome in our camp. :)
