So I have thick course hair and have had a dicken of a time getting the Henna mix the right consistancy.
So I came up with a recipe last night that seems to work really well.
You will need:
Amla oil OR 3 tablespoons AMLA powder with 1 tablespoon coconut oil/3 tablespoons coconut milk
2 cups hot liquid:
RED: Use Sandalwood, Paprika, or Cranberry Juice
BROWN: Use Tea, Coffee, or Black Walnut powder
1 heaping cup henna powder
1 drop patchouli, lavendar, cedar,or tea tree essential oil
mix in a glass or ceramic bowl
Use whatever is easiest to clean to stir it.
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit 6-8 hours.
Consistancy should be about "pudding" apply to dampened hair, leave on 3-8 hours.
Rinse out using conditioner, then shampoo and condition again.
Wait 3 days and before washing hair again.
