I did my second henna today, and since the first time I had stained hands from playing in my hair afterward, I made sure I rinsed and scrubbed every single particle out this time with gloves.

Yet here I am with orange hands and fingernails I know it goes away in a few days but this is sooooo annoying!

Does anyone else have this problem?

I can't do anything about my fingertips, but I paint my fingernails to hide the orange tint.

LOL@ Old school smoker... I wish I could wear nail polish on weekdays, but my profession causes that to be a waste of time, it chips to fast from all the hand washing.

Thanks for the compliment Lovin... we're on the same henna schedule! But this last time my bang was so straight it looked like it was blown dry with a comb attachment I gotta pump the brakes!
