|Henna Gloss using|
Henna, Conditioner and Natural Oils
Saturday, March 12, 2011
I like to use Henna to blend in my grays and strengthen my hair but I don't always have time to do a full Henna application. I read up on Henna glosses sometime last year and now I'll do that when I'm short on time or just want to stretch my Henna stash. It's like doing a deep conditioning treatment with Henna added. This way you get some of the benefits of Henna without the long, messy process.
I like to dampen my hair before applying the Henna gloss because it seems to go on a bit easier that way. After it's all in I sometimes sit under the dryer with a plastic baggie for maybe thirty minutes and then leave it on for awhile after that. Rinsing it out is waaay easier than rinsing out a full henna treatment. The conditioner gives a lot of slip so it comes right out. Then I like to co-wash to make sure that I got it all. It's easier but still helps to blend my gray strands...can't beat that.
