I finally remembered to do one of these! :cheese:

So I started out 3 years ago with pitch black hair. I wanted to quit conventional dyes, and found this forum whilst researching henna and indigo. I did two-step henndigo in the beginning, then I decided that I liked henna-red hair more and I started growing out the henndigo and chemical dye in March/April 2012. My real hair colour is blonette. I had hip-length hair when I joined, but in April 2012 I had to cut back to bsl/mbl because my ends were so damaged. I reached classic stretched last fall, but I cut back to tbl, and I plan on trimming a bit more. It's really weird to look at these pictures, because I'm so used to having red hair.

This picture is from August 2012.

I started wearing my hair in buns and braids, and my first creations were pretty awful!

Thankfully, I've gotten better at it!

Wow! Great color, and you have a TON of hair! I'd almost talked myself out of the Henna/Hendigo thing too, dang it! Now I'm not so sure!

Thank you so much, everyone! :heartbeat :flowers: :blossom:

I used a variation of the rag curl method to do the heatless curls. I sectioned my hair into 10-12 sections, misted each section and rolled up with 15-20 cm long pieces of pantyhose. I did it in the evening and kept them in overnight.

I love your variegated hair! Do you plan on henndigoing or just staying red once the black is grown out?

I've always loved seeing your hair around the boards, so unique! But all this time I thought your natural hair was red hehe
Congrats on your growing :)

Thank you! I have to try that. Though, I suspect it's your luscious thick hair that's making those curls look as awesome as they do!

I won't do any henndigo, but I'll definitely play around with Manic Panic. :D
