The Great Henna Experiment - Part 2

I did my research and it seems my batch of henna is ready to test! Of course, I was right that I shouldn't have put tap water in the mix...oh well. The goop has darkened nicely and smells, hmmm, like old tea. I mixed in a little ground cinnamon to spice up the aroma a bit (it won't change the dye). My hairdresser saved a slice of my hair last week so here goes the strand test:

Smearing it on with something I found as I rummaged through the junk drawer:

And, wah-lah! Must say (in case you weren't thinking it already) that it looks like something Eric pulled out of the shower drain....eeewwwwwwwww:

I'll let it sit for a couple hours or so then we'll see! I don't think I'll attempt going to watch soccer practice before I put it on my head so it's going to have to wait until after the kiddos are in bed for the main event.

Can't wait to see how this turns out...why are you dying your hair, anyways? You have a beautiful natural color...or, is that your natural color? ;)
