Believe it or not the most Google hits I get on this site is because of my henna reviews! Which really wasn’t something that I foresaw but I also find it ridiculously entertaining so I’ve gone and done what any sane lady would do and henna’d my hair again (okay….I like Google hits but pretty hair makes me feel happy too!).
I used Lush Caca Noir, which is a first for me because I’ve only ever used Caca Rouge, Caca Marron and Caca Brun and was a little concerned that this would make my hair too dull and black but recently my hair has been looking a little too orange for me, after the Henne Color Paris faded to a red colour, so I thought something a little darker might even things out a little bit.
I used my standard henna method of chopping it up, mixing in the hot water and some Fluff-Eaze and then stirring it over a pan of water on the hob, until it’s smooth and creamy.
Because I was interested in the hype, I bought myself some Ultrabalm today, what an investment! Not only does it seem like a wonderfully intensive moisturiser, it also seems to work much better than my standard Vaseline for putting around my hairline and ears to protect my skin from henna staining, it was wonderful!
I put the henna on my hair and instead of putting clingfilm on to bring out the rich, red colours, I left the henna to air dry to obtain the darker colours. I left it on for about 3 hours and then rinsed out with strong shampoo.
The results aren’t as strong as I thought they might be and my roots aren’t that coloured but I have a feeling that next time I use Caca Noir, everything will be a little more intense, though, you can definitely see the darker colours inside but the reds are still quite strong in the sunlight.
I’ll take more photos as it develops but so far I like it!
