Real People, Real Henna: "Dafne & Teemu"
Left: Dafne's hair after henna and indigo. Right: Teemu's hair after applying leftover henna
I used 300 grams of henna powder and mixed it with a mildly acidic liquid. After several hours, Teemu applied it to my hair using silicon gloves. We used a little of henna that remained from Teemu's hair to do some reddish strands.
We were a bit afraid to see the result but it came out really cool. Both of us kept it on the hair for about 4hours before rinsing the paste off.
I used 200 grams of indigo powder mixed with water and applied the paste to my hennaed hair.
My hair is softer and so shiny!
Even after two months Temu’s color is still very strong and bright!
