    I agree about henna. I used to colored my light hair with henna and I was soft red, sometimes even like dark gold. And my hair was strong and shiny, but a little bit dry so you need to use some balm or hair conditioner. Well I used egg's mask and coconut oil. Now I color my hair with ordinary hair dye and I'm not happy about it. I want to find some eco colors, but it's hard to find colors that I like. I'm thinking..well, can I do some red ombre with henna?? Does anybody know or do something like that?

     

    I did this. It took me for about 3 hours. I watched two movies when I did this.
    I made my henna paste and put a towel under my hair.
    Then I started to apply the henna paste gradually, every 30 minutes or so a little bit higher. I kept doing that until I did half of the length. Then I made some 'highlights' to my scalp.. When reaching my scalp, I only applied it on the hairs on the outside, the hairs that fall down on my side part, I didn't do all the roots. (don't know how to explain this properly)
    I only full hennaed the hair ends. I think my lazy-not-hennaing-everything makes a big difference because it creates the contrast between the darkbrown of my virgin hair color underneath and the henna auburn.

    I also think the results are best if you're using henna for the 1-5th time because you don't have a henna color buildup yet. This was the second or third time I applied the henna. I think it's funny that it became more obvious after I did a full henna application some months after! (Again, not doing the hairs laying underneath!). It made the reddish tone more radiant.

    I'm very happy and I think I'm going to maintain the ombre effect.

    Good luck if you want to do this!

  • Grey Hair

    I believe it can be reversed...but how?

     

    Depends on your age. If you are below 30, then gray hair might be a sign of Vitamin B12 deficiency. I'm 28, and a year back I spotted a lot of gray hair in the mirror a day after I got a hair cut. Anyway, I did some research, and some of it pointed to Vitamin B12 deficiency. So I got my B12 levels tested and turned out to be severely deficient. I supplemented with 1000 mcg Vitamin B12 a day, and in 3 months the gray hair completely vanished!  I think that if you started graying prematurely but your health is improving, you could hope to see color return.

    My mother 15-20 percent white, but it is mostly concentrated around her face . She got great coverage using henna
    Her hair is dark dark dark so her white hairs show up as red/ burgundy threads. I love the effect!

  • what kind of diet can someone eat,to change the color of eye

    Remember that genetics also plays a role in this and it isn't goimg to be the same for everyone. Also the colour of our eyes is determined by chemicals e.g. melanin. A change in chemicals can lead to a change in eye colour, (however you would probably also have to have the genes for the particular eye colour I would say). Further, disease, trauma and aging CAN change your eyes also, for as we know these three things can create chemical changes within the body.

  • Weight loss: Am I doing it right?

    You're doing right !

    Everyone who has ever experienced a caloric deficit has done so through burning more calories than they eat . 1200-1600 cal a day..It's enough ? you have plenty intensive activity..

  • Dreadlocks

    I had dreads one time whrn I was in Goa. I was a blonde, and I really liked the result http://hairstylezz.com/best-dreadlock-styles-for-girls/23/ An important piece of advice I got from a friend who has had dreads for years told me that in order for people to think I'm half as clean as they are I have to be twice as clean as they are. Most of the crap I've gotten has been from white people who bought a line of bullshit that people who had dreads didn't wash or comb their hair.

    As for after care do a deep clean with Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda about a month after you start them. You can find instructions online. The ones I do often include Lavender, Tea Tree, and Rosemary essential oils and I repeat them once my dreads stop smelling like them. Other than that I washed my hair at least twice during a shower and washed my hair every second or third shower as I shower daily. Keep them dry and periodically separate them at the roots on a regular basis.
