henna again
So here I am, trying to henna my hair again. This time I mixed the henna first, and set that inside the gas oven overnight, where the pilot light would keep it warm. About an hour before I wanted to start applying the goop, I mixed up the indigo, and set that on top of the stove with the henna (since my husband needed the oven to make dinner). Then I mixed the two together, and glopped it on. I've been sitting here with it on my hair for about 4 hours, and I have a headache from the weight. Time to rinse!

Geez! It took me thirty minutes to get all the goo out! Patience! ;-D

Right. Because I am such a patient grasshopper. *rolls eyes* (Understood re: goo, though...)

Hee! They're kind of crap, because I didn't realize the battery was dying so I couldn't play, but here they are: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tashabear/tags/henna2feb07/

Now I just have to remember to take the battery out of the charger and put it back in the camera before I go to drill.

Oooo... looks like you have lots of lovely depth of color, and it's a great color with your skin! *fangirls Tasha's henna prowess :D

Thank you! I was asked if it was natural. I told the guy that technically, yes, it was, but not my original color, no.

I also had to explain to darkwolfie that if I didn't add the indigo, my grey roots would end up the color of his beard. He gets color theory, but dyes and dyeing are a lot more alchemical than his method of blending pastels on a page.
