April is here, lots of rain, lots of cloudy days.
Seems to be unconciously my favorite time of the year to wear my hair out. LOL
I got my hair done yesterday, Relaxer, CUT, Cut and more cut.
I recently less than 2 weeks ago Henna'd my hair. I was afraid of the color fading. NOpe not one bit, not only did my relaxer not fade my hair. My hair was in the best condition ever after relaxing my hair and I toss the coins up to the Henna.
My Henna experience was great, Minus the drips here and there and every where.
My mixture consisted of the same as last time minus the paprika that got feet and got lost.
Alma oil two cap fuls
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Black Tea - about 2 cups
Jamila Henna - 2 boxes
1 cup of conditioner my favorite
4 table spoons of Lemon Juice
Indigo - seperately mixed then added to the Henna Mix.
I got under the steamer this time. While drippage was a problem, the not leaving it on for five hours was awesome. I left it on for 1 hour under the steamer and 2 hours w/0.
I then washed like crazy, then washed like crazy again. Rinsed and Deep conditioned for an hour.
My hair definitely felt better than before but now I get it. My hair feels much better a wash or two after the initial Henna episode.
Yesterdays relaxer section left my New Growth hair that had henna on it even more silky then normal. I can say right now, I won't and don't have plans on giving up my henna.
I used Motions Relaxer with oil moisturizers, Motions Neutralizing shampoo, Aphogee Leave in conditioner, Aphogee green tea and Her Styler Serum.
I received a much needed cut, MUCH needed. I think it looks wonderful. Henna again in May :D
