Henna for Blondes

The more I read about hair dye, the more I think I can do without.

The thing is, I don't care about having perfectly highlighted hair. I think a lot of people's hair looks fake anyway. I hate that “frosted” look. I like a more natural look — and I don't really care all that much about my looks. I never have.

Also, I really hate going to the salon. So I wait and procrastinate until my roots are super dark and then I finally go. But I hate the whole process. I'd love to skip it and do something more natural.

But since my hair's blonde, I didn't think I could find a natural alternative. Henna is great for reds — but I look HORRIBLE with red hair. My coloring is all wrong for it.

Anyway, someone just posted on my blog about henna for blondes…

I'm going to look into this. I could just order some and see how it goes. Worst case scenario, it will look like crap — in which case I'll wear a hat for a while.

It's worth a try. Better than bladder cancer. ;-) And better than wasting hours at the salon.

I used henna mixed with indigo (from Lush – called Caca Noir) for a while to make my hair black with a hint of red and it was gorgeous! Made my hair so soft and shiny. I hate that look too, when someone is trying to look all natural and they’ve got these big blonde and brown stripes in their hair. I go for the total fake look – blonde and pink – that’s me at the moment! Don’t think any amount of henna is going to make my hair the colours it is now! I’ve all for giving these things a try – it’s fun! Good luck!
