A friend recommended henna for my hair, to use as a strengthening treatment especially after protective styling. I used the following ingredients: Raw apple cider vinegar, Henna powder and water to balance out the apple cider vinegar.
I mixed the henna and covered it for about 12 hours (overnight). I then applied coconut oil to my hair and covered in a plastic cap and left it in my hair overnight as a pre-poo.
The following morning , I detangled and sectioned my hair;
I applied a Clarifying shampoo by Giovanni.
I then got my henna mixture and re-stirred, it was darker showing that the henna had released.
I lined my sink with paper to avoid staining, applied coconut oil around my forehead and ears to prevent henna staining my face as well. After application, I then covered my hair with a plastic cap and left henna mix to sit on my hair for 7 hours. I put the remaining mix in the freezer. 4-8 hours is recommended time for henna on hair. I then rinsed my hair under running water until the water was all clear.
I then deep conditioned my hair for 2 hours with the Argan Oil Intense deep conditioning Hair treatment by Hask beauty .
I then rinsed thoroughly with water and applied a Cold pressed virgin olive oil.
I then applied Shea-butter as a complete seal for my hair.
I then twisted and air- dried my hair.
