Bye, Bye Henna...A quick update...
Hey gals, I thought I'd do a quick update on my hair...
I've been rocking red locks for awhile now, thanks to henna. And while I love the color, and absolutely adore what henna has done for my hair, I'm not entirely sad to say I may be giving it up. Henna has absolutely been a miracle worker in salvaging my trashed out locks, honestly I can't sing it's praises loud enough. My hair went from split ends, overall dryness and dullness, and just generally being unhealthy, to shiny, moisturized, luscious locks. Seriously. But, all good things must come to an end.
I thoroughly enjoy changing my hair color, before henna, changing my hair color was a monthly occurence. Red one day, blonde the next, and the cycle goes on and on. When it comes to my beauty routine, I like variety. After all, variety is the spice of life. So. henna and I are breaking up. However, I have recently discovered the joys of cassia and I think I've found my rebound.
When I first started researching henna, months and months ago, I also stumbled upon cassia, but ignored it in favor of henna. At the time, I wanted red locks, and that was the end of the story. Within the last month or so, I've started researching alternatives to henna. While I would like my color to change, I'd like to keep reaping the overall benefits of henna. Yes, I want to have my cake and eat it too.
Unfortunately for me, and any other henna-head who has a change of heart, henna is virtually impossible to remove. You could try, but you'd probably end up with utterly fried hair long before the henna is gone. Or worse, bald. I am not desperate enough to risk either of those options, so I'll just have to grow it out, and cut it off.
Anywho, I'll post more in depth info on cassia coming up; what it is, what it does, etc. Just wanted to post a quick update.
If you've tried cassia, what'd you think?
