  1. LMAO…! Dear Crunchy Betty, so glad that I had found your tips page about henna…and yes MaidMerawyn henna is like a “gateway drug” I just love the stuff. I was using a brand called Colora but have been unable to find it online recently, so I started to use the brand, and so far its been good. I really got a lot of useful tips here, before, I was making a right turn at wrong and only leaving on my hair for only an hour. This time I left it on for 4 and had great results! Next time I am going to brew up some coffee and try that out.

    I have been flirting with the idea of henna and I’m so glad I came to you first, mainly because that story will likely end up as the highlight of my day (see what I did there?) I’m naturally a honey-reddish-but-more-honey blonde and I want a really light red to push me over into ginger territory and keep me there most of the time. I’ve seen “hennas” in that color range, but I’ve been a little scared. Hearing your description of its effect on texture I am now determined. Thank you so much for sharing this! I’m almost done laughing now.
