Here’s the post I promised you guys about the henna color results!
Before I applied the henna I did the rainwash treatment for 40mins for absolutely noooo reason. Only because I had forgot I’d already purchased a shower filter which left my hair with no hard water buildup. By the time I was done washing that out it was already getting well into the night so I decided to just throw in the towel, let my hair air dry, go to bed, and resume the next day.
-_- total time and munnies wasted: $3.00, 40mins + 8hrs drying time.
As you can see from the photos, my hair was reeeeaallyyy dry, like hayhaystraw dry, before I did the henna and after it got a lil’ mo’ betta, with some shine and softness 🙂
This is the color that the henna turned out on my already kinda reddish-brown hair. It looks fanfreakingtastic in sunlight lol.
I wish it was this way all the time haha.
This is what color it is in indoor lighting.
Not as vibrant but you can still kinda see the burgundy/red tones a lilllll bit.
I did end up cutting a few inches off but as you can see from this pic I pretty much restarted myself at the beginnings of waist length (when stretched or straightened completely, mbl when I just let it do its thing) and made the ends of my v-shape a lot less sharp or “pointy” for lack of a better word.
2013 was a super annoying super boring year for my hair lol. I blame that on school though.
Hopefully 2014 will be better. *fingers crossed*
Hair Goals for 2014:
- More protective styles. Less heat. Like seriously.
- Retain all length or as close to it as possible.
- Hot oil treatments.
- Become more active on my site and make more curl friends 😀
- Reach tailbone length by Dec. 24, 2014.
Ehhhhh I can’t think of anymore right now but the main one is seriously cutting back on the use of heat and length retention lol.
