I'm gonna have to just love my colour after this first application, I think lol. Or wait to do another. I don't have a lot of spare cash at the moment and Henna isn't cheap. But thank you for the advise! I am getting two boxes of Henna, so 200g. I hope that will be enough. And I have a friend coming over to help me. But she's coming over in the morning, so I will just have to hang out all day with henna in my hair, wrapped in plastic wrap lol.

The lady selling to me said she has very similar in colour hair to mine and she said that she gets a "rich 'Irish Setter'" colour... so looking at that, I'm cool with that. :P

Well, I have the henna in my possession now... not just to figure out how to mix it so I can let it set to be good and ready for Monday.

Well, I'm in the process of henna-ing my hair. I'm not sure what exactly I thought it would smell like, but it smells identical to my chinchilla's food

I'm a bit nervous! I have a TON of hair, and it's all henna-ed and piled on top of my head; it's so heavy! Here's a before picture:

How much henna did you end up using to get all of your hair? I am looking forward to after pictures! I am SO excited to do mine!

250 grams, and I barely had enough! I'll definitely post after pictures! My bathroom is a HUGE mess. I'm not even quite sure how henna got splattered in all the places it did.

On another note, both dogs won't come anywhere near me. I'm not sure if it's because of the shower cap or the smell

Eek... I really REALLY hope I have enough to do my hair. Gah. I only have 200g. And I have pretty long, thick hair. I'll have to make it a little more runny, I guess..

That picture is about 4 months old (I hate pictures of myself), so my hair is a little longer now than it was there. Plus a lot of it ended up on the floor. You'll probably have enough if you're more careful and conservative with the application than I was!

My hair is probably a little bit longer than yours in that picture, and really thick... Gah. I will have to be very careful. Just couldn't swing another box right now or else I'd have gotten 300g. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I haven't mixed mine up yet because I am not sure if I'm just supposed to mix the Jamila powder with boiling water or what...
