I forgot to detangle my hair first, which made applying a major pain.


Results to follow....
Webjockey, I look forward to seeing your results .

For future reference, you don't need to use ACV with "neutral henna". It's actually a plant called Cassia Obovata, and it just requires warm water and , if you like, a bit of honey for smoothness.

The ACV is for the normal henna plant "Lawsonia inermis". The acid in the ACV releases the red dye.
