Henna for Hair

Maria AZ's Mix
Maria BeforeMaria After
Maria AZ's hair before and after henna

I have photos for you I took a week after a henna application.  Prior to this application, I hennaed about a month ago and was using once a week a henna gloss made with a tablespoon of prepared henna paste mixed with 1/2 cup conditioner.  I've provided before and after pictures that were taken before either of us had applied any henna at all.  I hope you are able to use these!
I used:
  • 100g Badshah body art quality henna
  • Add enough lemon juice to make a thick paste
  • Add cold strong coffee to make a paste of yoghurt consistency
 The henna was left outside until dye release, about 3-4 hours in 95 degree weather.
I mixed an equal amount of yoghurt into the henna paste, and used this stage on my hair.  I applied heat for about 20 minutes in the beginning, then let sit for an additional 2 hours. 
I have a lot of gray, as the before photo shows.
