So here I sit, henna goop in my hair. No clingfilm or shower cap as I want BLUE rather than red highlights. As this is the first time that I have used this stuff AND the first that I have "colored" my hair all by myself, I have no idea how this is going to come out, but I'll find out in the next few hours...
I may find out that there is a REASON why I have always had my hair professionally colored before.
I had some reservations as many of the comments on the LUSH page said it smelled horrible. Either my sense of smell has died, or I'm just used to odd smells (seaweed anybody?), but it's not unpleasant.
My wooden mixing spoon is now an interesting shade of blue green. I was prepared! Had bought a package of cheap wooden spoons (5 for $1) and disposable rubber gloves.
