    Henna’d for the first time last week using this recipe. Absolutely love the results. The only changes I made were I clarified prior & applied henna to damp hair. I also let the mixture sit for 5 hrs prior to applying to my hair (was multitasking). My hair is so much stronger now. Thank you!

    Since this was last posted, I got the coconut milk and a couple of months ago I did a henna treatment and instantly fell in love. As a matter of fact, I just finished applying henna to my hair about an hour ago (remains from 1st batch). I have a couple engagements to attend this weekend and will be looking for a nice bun so if anybody have any vids to recommend let me know. My hair isn’t TWA and it’s not at my shoulders either if that helps.

    Hi! Great recipe! How long did you let the henna sit?

      I don’t let mine sit. I use it immediately after mixing.

      i won my HENNA from NR :o)
      I left my HENNA in for 6 hours including application time. These are the 2 videos I did showing how I mixed the coconut milk & the application of the henna. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM8F3dBp5j8

        I’ve done several henna treatments mixing with indigo, conditioner, alma and olive oil all with great results. I’ve never used or purchased coconut milk but would love to try this, could you please tell me where I could possible purchase the coconut milk? I’m hoping that I can get it in a store because I really hate when I have to order stuff on line and wait for it to come in the mail. :-{ lol

    thx again 4 the HENNA Contest! I have been doing my research to ensure I get the most out of my 1st try @ HENNA! So a few quick questions….
    1. Should you shampoo, detangle & condition b4 applying Henna / should it be applied to dry hair?
    2. As a 1st time Henna user would you suggest to use this your coconut / gloss method vs. the regular henna method with just the powder & lemon juice that I have seen some people demo?
    3. Last 1 :)Approx. how much olive oil & ACV did you use?
    Thx Again !

      1. Henna should be applied to dry hair. No need to shampoo and condition before.
      2. I think it is more of a personal preference. The each take about the same amount of time to prepare and apply. The regular henna treatment may give more color. However, it can be more drying and more difficult to wash out. I wouldn’t say that one is better than the other for everyone. It’s best to try both and see what works for you.
      3. I just use a few tbsp of ACV and maybe a tbsp of olive oil.
