Video: How to prepare and apply henna

Check out my video which explains how to prepare and apply henna on your hair.
Thumbs up if you like it.

A couple of months ago, Caressa shared the effects of henna on her hair (type 3a/3b). But will it be as effective on 3c and 4a type of hair?

I decided to give it a try, because my hair really needs some help when it comes to damage recovery. I was not able to go out of my house without arriving at work with lots of frizz on my hair (But maybe I was worrying too much about frizz).  But there were more things which encouraged me to do the henna treatment:

    • My hair was incredibly brittle
    • My hair was lustreless
    • The texture of my hair was incredibly heavy. Consequently, I was spending at least an hour in the bathroom detangling my hair (Changes of breakage were high)
    • I wanted to color my hair, without applying chemicals

So what were the main advantages for me?

    • I was able to color my hair, without adding chemicals. My hair is now dark brownish
    • The texture of my hair slightly reduced, making my curls manageable
    • I have less frizz

What were the disadvantages of henna treatment to me?

    • Washing the henna out was hell. I wasted lots of products, because it was almost impossible to wash the grains of the mixture out of my hair.
    • The result was slightly beyond expectations, I was relying on it to solve my frizz problems
  • My bathroom was a mess afterwards; it was a pain in the ass to clean it up.

This is my selfie of the morning after the treatment:
