    Default Interesting way to apply henna

    Hello Fellow Hennaheads,

    I'm not sure if anyone has ever seen this video but it's a very interesting way to apply henna: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQicW...eature=mh_lolz

    It's my first time trying this method and so far it feels like the henna mass is much better distributed on my hear. Usually, I end of with a gigantic heavy bun or two that makes my neck really hurt. I'm sitting up and no neck pain!

    Unfortunately, when I was 75% done I realized I wasn't always wrapping in the same direction so this may be hard to get out. I will let you all know when I'm done in a few hours.

    Wow. That's great.

    I could never have enough patience to dye my own hair like that.

    I sorta did that once. I started from the front and did little sections. I twisted the sections up and then rolled them up and stuck them to my head. It kept everything much neater.

    That's how I've always done it, I don't know any other way...

    This i'll have to try, seems very easy. But how about tangling of the hair?
    And with quite long hair will this also work? Would be nice to not have sticky hairs in my neck while applying

    I think that would work great for people who henna/indigo etc the whole head every time. I am a roots only henna person so I would be afraid that wrapping my non-roots hair around in the henna bun would cause henna to get on the unhennaed hair.

    I tried something like that this past time. But my clarified and unconditioned hair was so frizzy I could barely separate the sections... I ended up separating into five sections or so and just wrapping each one around my head. They were too muddy to get more tangled, and I didn't have trouble rinsing. I suspect this would work for very long hair too.

    So last night was an almost success. My hair did not get more tangled than normal but I couldn't seem to get all of the henna out. Although, I did use double than I normally use because I wanted to do more than just roots.

    I think I will do it like this again, it really does help keep henna off of your neck and back!
