  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.

    enjoyed reading your post. Very funny. I have used henna for several years and really like it.. : )) thank you for your story and aides in using henna. lol L

  4. Reading this was like a comic version of watching Intervention. I’m definitely going to try henna and do it PREPARED–and still screw something up. Thanks for the laughter and the information.

    Am using henna with water for my hair every week since the past couple of years. My hair is short / curly and dry. Henna makes it thick and gives a reddish tint . Last time a few months back I used la Oreal hair colour which cost me a neat 20.00 Euros and half my hair was on the floor in a few days time . I have vowed never to use artificial colouring again. Back to my henna. I mix it with just water and apply it at 09 00 when the family goes out and wash it off with water at 15 00 when its T time . That night , oil it ( even if its half dry ) , wash it with a shampoo as normal the next day morning . This has been my rewarding routine for the past few years.

  6. I am looking forward to try this tips
