The girl I have coming to help me works until 2 am, and is coming over after work, so I will likely be up all night watching movies with mine in, since my boyfriend and hers are going to pick something up about 3 hours from us. :P

My boyfriend is already complaining about the henna stink just from mixing it. lol

I really want to try henna, too. I hate how the boxed haircolors come out on the red end of the spectrum - after they wash out for a week or two they're great, and then they continue to fade, and blah.

So, how do you keep from henna-ing your face/neck/everything when you henna your hair?

You put vaseline all around your hairline to prevent staining on your face

What she said. The count down is on. Thinking I will need to add some more water to my mix, though, because after setting it seems like it's gonna be too thick to be able to get all through my hair.

Yeah that was my problem. It does thicken up a lot after it sits, so definitely add more water. I was just afraid of making it too loose, but yeah it's not so easy to coat your hair if it's too thick.

I have a "carrot" bag to use, so I am not too worried about too loose, as long as it will still work.

How'd it go??

Day 2 and I really love the color but I feel like I'm noticing spots where I didn't get dye, now that I can look at it in the sunlight. I'm kind of conflicted because I want to redo it now to get those areas better, BUT I don't want to change the areas with color that I like!
