Recently I asked my gal pal her if she wanted henna in her dreads
(shes my most willing mehndi canvas).She said she had tried it once
and it made her hair brittle and.
I was puzzeled by this I know henna to coat the hair shaft, for me
it moisterizes my dry hair and makes it soft.
Anyone else out there who might have more on this.
I would have thought in Egypt and Africa it would have been used
hair as much as for skin.

: I heard a long time ago and just now again how using henna on a
: person's hair will cause it to become like straw. The lady who
: wrote me said it was breaking off all over the place. To me, this
: sounds like she was using it over chemically colored hair. I
: think this was the case with the earlier lady, though. Are there
: other products that this lilywhite girl doesn't know about that I
: should warn my customers about for henna interaction?
