So last night I took a trip over to Lush to get my henna. They apply it right there in the store for you, which was so much fun. Everyone that walked in gave me strange looks, but you probably would too once you see what this stuff looks like. I'm going to be completely honest with you, it looks really disgusting. Here are some photos of the process.
Henna comes in four colored bricks. I chose the marron because it said that it would give me darker chestnut hair.
|I know I don't look very attractive, but the henna is super messy so you have to wear clothes that can easily get ruined.|
|In order to put the henna on your head, you have to chop it up and mix it with boiling water. Yes, I know, it looks like mud.|
|Before we started the henna.|
|As you can see, it's like a big pile of mud on my head.|
|So gross. It hardens so quickly. My hair was so heavy I could barely keep my head up.|
|She was so nice. I would definitely go back and ask her to do it again.|
|My lovely saran wrapped head.|
|This really isn't a pretty process. I kept the henna in for three hours and then washed it out in the sink. I'm so glad that my aunt and uncle helped me or I would never have gotten it all out.|
Until next time, Mandy
