So after my last dilemma of having orange hair, I decided to slap some henna on my head and give it a break from all the colouring. That decision was prompted by seeing this picture in my tumblr dash:
I decided that I didn’t have to go much brighter than that, the brown-red colour was looking like a good option for me and I figured if I henna’d my hair then I’d get something similar. I even mixed some beetroot juice in my henna mix just to try and ensure a nice red.
Here’s what I got:
In the sunlight it’s a bright beautiful head of red-orange curls. They say you need to give henna a few days to “set” to see the true colour but I can’t imagine it being much different from this. If it is, I’ll post the pics on my Facebook page.
The issue I had last time of curl loosening from henna isn’t affecting me as much this time around so I may do another henna in a month’s time to tone down a bit and get something closer to the colour in the first image…who knows!
Side note: my hair is at a length where it can be cornrowed and twisted up now…I’m excited to try some new styles! I may go for something similar to that first pic.
