Dying my hair red

It’s no secret i dye my hair red. Pretty obvious, haha. Since I try to be environmental friendly, and because I love the colour henna gives, that’s what I use. Besides, no chemicals to give me eczema! I also like to experiment a bit, and this time I used the following:

– henna powder (high quality)
– turmeric powder
– red tea
– camomile tea
– black coffee
– white wine vinegar
– lime juice

I mixed the whole thing in a bowl until it has a consistency of yogurt, covered with a plate, and put it into a preheated oven of 50°C and let it stay there for about 4 hours. I then added a splash of lemon juice, covered with cling film and left it until the afternoon the next day.

I generously added the mixture into my (dry, clean) hair. Normally I leave it in overnight, but this time I didn’t really have the energy to do that (it doesn’t exactly make me sleep well), so I “only” left it in my hair for about five hours. I hopped into the shower and rinsed all of the henna out.

I was quite pleased with the result, and my hair always feels really healthy after the process.
