I added the remaining oil concentrate to the henna with an additional 1/2 cup of Organic EVOO shown in photo below.
I added the remaining portion of my Hello Hydrations Conditioner to my mix for the first time. I wanted to try the henna gloss style application this time for additional moisturizing. I added remainder of the bottle which is marked at the blue line on this photo.
I applied henna the paste to my hair dry. I had just taken out the twists I'd worn for 2 weeks prior to this treatment. Since the parts were already set it made it much easier to apply after a brief finger detangle to my knyxx. I couldn't believe how my hair managed to stay almost completely tangle free after 14 days. I contribute it to the Knot Today by Kinky Curly I use.
The color of the henna once mixed with water will be green and turn to a brown color as the dye releases in the paste. I allow the henna to sit 2 hours at least prior to application.
Once I'm ready to apply the henna (notice the color change in photo on the right) to my hair I gathered the gloves I will need to protect my hands from discoloring. During my last trip to the beauty supply store I found ear protectors for $1...hope they work!
Henna applications can be a bit messy for me so I always put a sheet over my counter top to protect it from henna stains. I also have a dark colored tee-shirt I wear when I henna. I section my hair into quads and apply with gloved hands. Sometimes I use the application brush on the roots to ensure complete coverage. Very important I make sure the roots of my hair are saturated with henna, this is where it is most beneficial for my growing kynxx.
Time to wrap it up! I use plastic Cling Wrap to ensure the henna will not run down my clothes or stain my pillow case when I lay down. If I keep the top of the head open I'll get a less intense color.
I give those $1 ear protectors 2 BIG thumbs up!!
It took a total of 12 minutes to rinse the henna from my scalp and hair. I rinsed using as cool as I could stand water temperature until the water ran semi clear and I didn't feel any excess henna. I generously applied my fave co-wash detangling conditioner VO5 to my hair, finger combing to detangle, left on for about 3 minutes and rinsed.
Henna all gone!...I just luv my kynxx after a fresh henna...my curls have some hang time, at least temporarily.
Healthy Roots! Strong Roots! Clean hair and scalp without using shampoo at all!
Deep conditioning time. I use Organic Root Stimulator's Replenishing Moisturizing Conditioner aka ORS Replenishing Pak. This is the only conditioner Ive used following a henna treatment that restores my hairs moisture in the same day. My kynxx absolutely luv it.
I really do Luv My Kynxx!
