Nikki, my original plan was to henna once a month, and use cassia in between. But I got caught up experimenting with the henna. Now, you're making me want to return to my plan and use cassia as my deep conditioner lol.

It's funny how, with the mixing and rinsing, even though it's more work than taking a store bought conditioner and slapping it on, I still look forward to doing my henna treatment. I actually like the process - like a spa treatment. And the results definitely justify the effort.
Same here. My fiance was teasing me yesterday because he said that I 'live for the ritual'. He always pokes fun at my hair obession, but I guess he's right, if it takes a process (i.e. wait a week, buy the mix, add boiling water, add honey, stir, wait to cool, apply in sections, leave on for hours, etc.) I love it and I stick to it. Plus the results are so wonderful, I can't see myself getting tired of it.
