Smells like henna.

Henna (Lawsonia inermis, also called henna tree) is a flowering plant used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool.

Part one of two.

Wait! Some rules before you start that I didn’t follow, but you can, and your henna experience will maybe be better than mine. Learn from my mistakes.

Rules. Unless you want to free form.

1) Mix your henna in a non-metal bowl with a non metal utensil. Metal may interfere with henna’s staining abilities. I chose to mix mine in a metal bowl with a metal utensil. My hands are still stained red.

2) Jen says to get gloves so you don’t stain your hands.

3) Maybe try to have a dark coloured towel or two around. All mine are white. And my bed sheets are white too. Or they were white, now they have deep green blotches.

Love out.

    Dear Henaladies,
    could you please make a tutorial on how to make Hitler mustaches with henna?
    Everybody wants "free FROM"…
