Today is the day when I applied Khadi for the second time. The same time for a review! :) For the first time khadi I applied 7 2013 exactly July. It was the first time I had contact with this product.
What are my thoughts? how much did khadi paint stick to? In this post, I hope to answer all your questions about hair henna.
Applying the product is time-consuming (although I must admit that now, when I applied the second time, it is definitely much better! Also, I think it's a matter of practice). The first one went nut brown. I wanted darker, but it wasn't right. Although nut brown did a good job, I will order a darker shade the next time I buy it because it only unified my natural color.
How to use Henna Khadi nut brown
The first dyeing was a bit embarrassing because I could not determine / find the perfect consistency of the paint when mixed with water. With subsequent application of henna, it will certainly be much easier, because I found the perfect consistency, and instead of water I added black tea (I read on several blogs that it can be added, which will make the color darker, which is what I wanted).
First, we wash the hair with shampoo without SLS, apply henna to wet hair. I will say a little about the application - henna is mixed with warm water, there are no exact proportions, I always do it by eye. Half the can is enough for my hair (approx. To the shoulders). The amount of product was enough in 100%.
Unfortunately, I think I was unlucky once again, because I didn't get the cap or gloves mentioned on the website ... I also had to buy an additional product before I went to hair henna.
After mixing henna with water, apply it to the hair even warmer (the colder it is, the more compact it is, the more difficult it is to apply). We have to do it very carefully, otherwise we will have only some hair strands dyed and some in the "old" color. After applying, we put on a shower cap (this time I put on food film) to preserve heat. I kept the henna around 2 hours because I wanted to get the darkest color possible. The first time it came out a little too bright (completely in the color of my natural hair), now it is a little darker, but still reminiscent of my natural color. We keep Henna from 30 minutes to 2 hours. As I wrote, I held 2 h.
We have to refrain from washing and styling 48 hair, thus I recommend applying henna on Friday, and washing only on Monday morning. This is not a big problem, because I noticed that thanks to henna my hair is less greasy, so if I dye on Friday evening, on Saturday they are beautiful and I tie them on Sunday it is ok.
Henna clung to 1,5 of the month during my daily hair washing. Only then could it be seen that it was completely washed out. Fortunately, I didn't have suckers, which I was scared of.
Effects after dyeing with Khadi henna
Wonder! My hair is less greasy, shiny, nourished and much thicker (it seems as if there were more on the head). What more could you want?!
I rate this product 5- / 6 (this small minus for applying the product, which is very troublesome at first). The effects beat everything! On Tuesday, I will put oil on my hair to strengthen the henna shine and that the hair will not be slightly stiff (although this effect passes after the first washing of the hair).
