Random blogging: Henna Hair

So I have been long overdue to rid of my pesky gray hairs that have been coming in.  So I decided to use Henna and Indigo from http://www.mehandi.com. I let the henna set for about 12 hours for the dye to release from the henna leaves.  Then added the indigo and voila I have a medium brunette/brown tent to my hair. It is a very busy process, so it is best to do when you have nothing else on your agenda.

Henna is good for your hair because of its natural herbal leaf properties.  It is organic and helps to coat and protect your natural hair follicles.  It also gets into the pores of the roots of your hair, so it is healthy and natural.  The mix of the indigo and henna is very goopy and a muddy texture, so you feel like you are putting mud on your head, but once the process is done, your hair will feel so refreshed and you will feel good that you have not used harsh chemicals on your hair and scalp.  I would recommend henna to anyone needing to color their hair.  The color treatments vary depending on your hair color.  Dark black or brown hair may not see much of a change of color. It does cover your grays though.  Overall I love the outcome of the henna process and will henna again in about a year. I plan next to color a very light color to my hair in the next three months. I’ll let you know how that turns out.

New Beauty Find: Studio 35 Beauty Hair Remover Face Cream

So I found an awesome facial hair remover product that I love.  It’s by Studio 35 Beauty.  It is a hair remover face cream. This stuff is awesome.  I use hair remover for my eyebrows since I don’t use tweezers and I use it for shaving my legs.  I have been using Nair which is also an awesome product, but if you leave it on too long (over 3 minutes), it will burn you and turn your skin red.  Nair does have an aloe vera alternative also which smells good, but you still can’t leave on longer than 3 minutes.  Well I just decided to try Studio 35 Beauty Hair Remover Face Cream, I applied to my eyebrow area carefully and left on for exactly five minutes.  Then wiped off with warm water, then cold water to cool the applied area like I did with Nair Hair Remover and it worked splendidly.  No redness after-affect and no burning, but most importantly, it took just the right amount of brow hair and my brows looks smooth and practically perfect as if I used tweezers or brow threading.  I am such a happy Studio 35 beauty customer.  I paid $4.29 for the product at my local Walgreens for a 2 oz. bottle, though If you catch Nair Hair Remover on sale at Walgreens, you can get it for $4.99 or five and some change for a 9 oz. bottle which is actually good, otherwise the Nair Hair Remover is $8.99.  Target also has good prices for its beauty products which are usually slightly lower for some products, but not for all.

However, the main point is that the Studio 35 Beauty Hair Remover and Face Cream is a superb product that I highly recommend.  Just test it on your skin if you have a tendency to be allergic and get rashes easily.  Other than that, it’s a winner for me!  See image below.  Not a paid advertisement.
