ID:	154 I mainly wanted to henna using the Nupur brand for the strengthening and conditioning benefits I'd heard about from "TheTruthIsHair" on youtube. I wasn't sure if I would notice any color changes since this henna is a blend. When I finished, I thought that there was no color change but then I realized that the 2 or 3 gray strands I had were a reddish brown. The rest of my hair looked the same to me. I do plan to henna again using this same brand and next time I will omit the lemon because I don't think it made a difference. When I decide to henna for color, I'll probably try a different brand. So anyway, after I finished, my hair was noticeable stronger! My hair strands felt thicker and I loved it! It was also soft. I was in a hurry so I put about 4 flexirods in front for some bangs and put the rest up using an ez comb. Click image for larger version.

ID:	156I'm not even gonna be discouraged about how this pic looks because I am NEVER going to back to this! Before I had 2-3 major setbacks back to back I was at 20 inches. I plan to do a post about that another time. Also, I think I'm going to dust on August 5th or 6th because those are the dates for lunar trimming to grow longer hair. And of course, I'm doing the sulfur challenge. I haven't started yet because I need to get an applicator bottle. Thought I had one but couldn't find it. Anyway, HHG to all! =)

    Thanky ma'am for posting! I'm so glad it turned out well for you. Can you notice the subtle color highlights? I see color in your side shot. But of course, it should be more noticeable in the sunlight. And what a good idea taking pic with measuring tape. Thanky Tink's hubby.

    I can barely see the highlights but they're there. I am taking control of my ends. I don't mind wearing my hair up as long as I can have some bangs so that's what I plan to do to help my ends. I need to figure out a way to keep them baggied...

    BTW, how often do you henna???

    Strenghtening and Soft... Thats what my hair needs right now. You survived your first Henna expreince ... so would you say its a must, will you be doing it again? Ur Nupur brand was already a blend so did you just add warm water to mix it? What was the purpose of the Lemon?

    Im still scared over here... But Iam looking to incorparate a full Ayurvedic Regimen so Henna is in my future

    Yes, I think this is a must for me! I plan to do it every two weeks if I can. I didn't warm my water. I just used room temperature distilled water. I decided to add lemon because I thought it was supposed to help the color release. Since I'm not particular about color right now, I won't worry about doing that next time. The directions on the package only call for water (oil is optional)
