I read your previous post too fast. My reading of it defied what I
thought I knew about where you are located...lol!!!
The black herbal/henna hair dye is a mix of henna and indigo. I
don't mix it with anything but water. Lukewarm water works best for
me. I made a mistake and used hot water one time and it fluffed up
like a souffle...strange to work with and seemed to not stain as
well. But the way it looked may have impacted my impression
totally. I am not very keen on things that kind of grow and fluff up
right before my eyes like that. So, I just mix it with water to a
thick paste...much thicker than anything you would use for body art
paste. Then cover with plastic wrap and let sit about an hour or
so. I have let mine sit up to 4 hours because I got busy with
something else. You keep this at room temp. Then apply. You want
to have on something you do not mind getting ruined. I have never
used henna on my hair without getting it all over the place. I also
put a plastic shower cap over my hair with tissue around the edges to
keep any liquid in the paste from flowing down. Then I wrap that in
foil and then wrap my head in a towel. In the winter I leave it on
all night long. In the summer the heat kept in by the cap, foil and
towel becomes too much after about 4 hours.
Yes, I would appreciate seeing the pics. Thanks.
