LOL I take it you aren't all about the red highlights then. In addition to the benefits you mentioned from henna, would you say it's also thickened the appearance of your hair (I love the way your hair looks in your icon btw - full of body)?

Yeah, that's just awful. Maybe if cosmetology schools began including pro-curly hair modules/techniques, instead of just directing everyone to thermally and chemically relax curly hair on sight (what an insult), beauticians and clerks might get beyond all these silly notions and actually SERVE their curly clientele and even make themselves more money as a result
