Henna Rockabilly

Submitted on Monday, January 13th, 2014 by gbtreker

I just dyed my hair with henna. I get mine from Henna Hut online because it's just henna, no added preservatives, chemicals, etc. I add water and tea tree oil when I mix it. (The flash and filter makes it look redder than it is, but it works pretty well and gives it some good streaks and varying colors.) I diffuse dried it, and I think I used a gel (either plain aloe vera gel or Body Shop's wheatgrass gel) and some leave-in conditioner. I wanted that rockabilly look, so I gave my hair a deep part (which is natural for my hair) and took the whole front section and pinned it back and to the side. I then rolled and pinned up the rest of my hair in sections, to the back. It was kind of messy, and I probably used 20 bobby pins, but I don't like to spend a ton of time on my hair, and my hair gets frizzy and uncurled the more I play with it. I finished by pouffing it up with my fingers. My curls are mostly 3A but have some 3B moments because it's curly and it does what it wants. I generally use products I've made or 'natural' ones, meaning no parabens or synthetic preservatives, etc. I use coconut oil on my hair and body (because it's amazing). Sometimes I add some pure essential oil of whatever smell I'm feelin like. I usually finish my hair in the shower with an apple cider vinegar mix rinse.
