    Default Henna Thread, take two

    There needs to be a henna thread, so I thought I'd make one. Perhaps the other one might at one point be able to be moved over here, or it could be made into a sticky. There is so much info in it, but it was getting unwieldy, so maybe a new one is in order anyway? (I'm not sure I really believe that, but I'm making lemonade.)

    Post your experiences with henna! Bring your questions. Talk about what you put in your mix. Post pics. Let's get the henna thread back to the way it was! I missed it.

    For more information on henna (and, in fact, required reading for all potential henna heads) read Nightshade's fabulous henna article. Find it in the article section.

    Henna sooq: hennasooq.com

    Let me know which others to add, or if there is more info that should be in the first post.

    Can we first post all the approved henna websites? that may be a good place to start.

    I'm doing me second ever henna-ing tomorrow! Can't wait to see how it looks a second time. My roots are about an inch long, and I swear they got like that overnight. It's great seeing that my hair is growing, though.

    Henna For Hair is the website where I got all my info and even bought my henna. I could spend hours looking at all the different henna'd hair pictures.

    Hmmm. I don't think that gloss did ANYTHING to my roots. So strange. No loss I guess. I needed to wash my hair anyway.

    I just hennaed a few days ago, my first time since LHC was down.

    It's noticeably red now. XD However, I'm debating what to do about my roots. I can either a) lighten and henna over them or b) indigo my hair. I like the red, and I'm not ready to give up henna yet darnit. D<

    And my thumb nails are orange. How that happened, I have no idea. Well, I do, but getting through gloves is odd. D:

    Really weird that henna dyes over gloves. Maybe they get dye n the rinsing process?
    What type of gloves do you wear? I use the surgical tight ones and never have any color on my hand.

    Henna *can* seep through plastic some. I use nitrile gloves because of it, just in case. Can't ruin the manicure
