I love the Light Defining Gel in the summer. I also love the Foam as a refresher. I can't get it to work consistently any other way, but I get great 2nd day hair using it as a refresher.

So this rescue placed this poor thing with you and didn't know or disclose his health issues to you? I would *never* deal with them again. If he had had a vet checkup, this information would have...

I always have henna overlap. Henna is very forgiving (never used indigo, though), and I've never noticed a line of demarcation.
