View Full Version : Help with Friends Hair

July 4th, 2012, 01:43 PM
I have a friend from work with gorgeous curly hair, but she hates her hair- thinks it is more poofy and not really that curly (she uses a blow dryer).
She has let me play with it a few times, loves henna (she was coloring her naturally dark brown hair burgundy), has started using EVOO overnight before washing, and started letting her hair air dry without combing- so now her curls have been making an appearance at work- they are no longer "poofy" and look so pretty.

She is coming over Saturday night to do hair stuff :) My only problem is that I don't really know much about curls. My hair is mostly straight with only the slightest hint of a wave pattern.

When I do henna I mix it with coconut milk and EVOO. Any suggestions for helping to bring out her natural curls?? Moisture treatments, special way to wash/condition, how to comb, etc

No pictures of her with her natural hair, but this hair model picture is pretty much spot on.


She also wants hair close to this (http://www.latesthaircolorideas.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/dark_2Dred_2Dhair_2Dcolor_2Dideas_2D4.jpg) color, but she has medium/dark brown hair naturally. I've been using Punjabi Prime henna which makes her hair look more medium brown with red highlights in the sun- but not the deep red she wants. But I don't know what kind of henna would give her a deeper red. I buy my henna from Mehandi.

So any advice for helping her would be much appreciated :)

Thank you guys
