Default Help!! Really dry hair from henna

Hi,

I just finished my henna and i can't believe how dry my hair is. I even clarified and used and intensive treatment i got from sally's a while ago. I have lost a ton of hair today trying to comb through it in the shower. I am really nervous that I just ruined my hair. I really like the color but I don't know what to do know. I put some olive oil and water in a spray bottle and put some of that in my hair. Is there something else I can do for my hair now? I really loved the idea of doing something natural to color my hair but now i am not so sure this was a good idea, i just want to cry

i used coconut oil from a whole food place and put tons on my head along with emu oil. i take and divide my hair into 4s. and put 3 to 4 drops of the emu oil and coconut oil in each part. wrap my head and leave for an hour then rinse using coconut from suave.

When I wash out my henna I open the tap until I get all the chunks out. Next I use Lustrasilk shea mango conditioner. Then I use my leave-in and oils like it's winter time to get back some of the moisture. Then the trick for me is not to let my hair dry free. I braid it up. When it's dry it's so soft and silky

Or try your regular deep conditioner after rinsing braid it up and wait for it to dry. Let me know how it goes.
check out this link henna mix for my dryy hair?

I think i am going to try a henna gloss next time. I have a container of the lustrasilk shea mango conditioner so I think i will mix it with that. My hair feels better now that it has been a couple of weeks since my first henna so I am trying to wait a couple more weeks until I do a gloss. Thanks for the advise.

My first henna application left my hair very dry and feeling odd for a few days.

The second time I used henna, I mixed it with lemon juice but then after dye release, I mixed it with conditioner instead of more lemon juice or water. I also used a TON of Suave conditioner to wash it out...I think part of the dry, dull feeling I had the first time was due to not getting all the henna out of my hair.

I didn't have any dryness issues the 2nd time.

A henna gloss would be a good idea if you aren't looking to get as much color out of the henna as you would when used full strength (as pure henna paste).

But make sure you use a very good hair oil, either in with your henna paste and/or especially afterwards to moisturize. Wash out the henna really well. If you use pure henna that is body art quality, then you should be getting a henna powder that has a very good sift most likely, and it should wash out easier.
