    When you've made the bun a little too tight and you have to fight the tension to slowly inch the hairstick through over several minutes, and you can't give up because you don't have enough strength left in your arms to redo the entire thing... always a good time. But now this bun will hold for the next few days if I let it.

I ended up buying my first bag of Nupur henna from someone living in Nepal.

    The Xinjiang people are also known for their thick long black hair, they often attribute this to their Isatis tinctoria, black seed, and peach seed, for hair growth, saying they use this herb combination on their hair and eyebrows from a young age for thick hair. Though many southerners tried it and said there wasnít any obvious effect, I wonder if thatís a genetic thing within a certain ethnicity and they somehow mix correlation with causation.

    These are some of the most common Xinjiang Henna packages. I canít help but notice their similarity with the lady on the Jamila henna package.

    Admittedly, lusciously hair, thick eyebrows, big round eyes, long lashes, high nose are all common attractive features that might lure you to buy their products.

    Also, cassia and zizyphus are something I could barely find natively. Iím still looking into it.
    Very interesting! Xinjiang would be near to Pakistan, is that right? Perhaps the Xinjiang henna lady and the Jamila henna lady have been admiring one another's adverts from across the border ( ;

    My hair is so close to TBL! I'm shocked!! A few more months or so and it should be solidly there. Or maybe even sooner... ahhh how exciting!!

    Yes, you are quite right. That’s a very lovely thought.

    I went for a walk today down a peaceful country lane and ended up following a horse down the road. I found myself hair typing its tail (2a/2b)

    I like hip length too! On me, it's a beautiful length and it's easy to do buns now.
