have you ever....

used  henna  on your hair?
If you have, you know of the hell I just subjected myself to.  If you haven't, well, you're lucky.  I can say with confidence that I will never do that again.  The good news is that it worked and I have nice, richly colored dark brown hair.  The bad news is that the smell is so horrible (even after rinsing and washing) that I am nauseous beyond belief.   
Time for a nap.


  1. That's too bad that you dislike the Henna so much. Yes, it has a "wet hay" scent ( I kind of like it now) but it is worth it for the wonderful things it will do for your hair.

    Not just color but strength and conditioning. I also appreciate the scalp benefits. It helps control scalp eczema.

  2. Thanks for the warning---never tried it and now, pretty sure I never will. Beauty is pain right? Oh well, I'm sure your hair looks like a supermodel : )

  3. Oh yeah, I had a run in with it's stink back in the early 90's. Wouldn't recommend it!

    Don't worry, the smell will eventually go away.

  4. The Body Shop used to make a henna product (AGES ago) that I used in college. My hair has naturally reddish highlights, so I didn't see much of a difference.


I love to hear your thoughts!
