With my first marathon completed (February 19th 2012) and almost a full year of my healthy hair care journey acheived (May 2012)...my goals now are to stay vegan, stay running, and continue forward. I can already see ultramarathons and trail marathons in my future. Plus lots more interesting vegan and hair experiments. So I hope you continue to stay with me and join in. You all help to keep me honest.
This time around it was faster and I had a more even application to the strands. It was still a mess though! I'm convinced that this will always be a messy process.
Next time around I plan to:
Do it overnight.
It is SO BORING having to be in the house all day with this stuff on. Plus it's heavy! As long as I wear a robe with a hood and protect the pillow I'm sure I'll be OK. The day I applied it, it was raining all day so I was lucky. But on those nice days coming up soon I'm not wasting a weekend! Once I start training I'll just have to reshuffle my long run once a month to make room for the treatment.
Add more water.
I did this time as well, which made the application process easier. But I think making it just a tad more pudding like, and less mud like, will help. It's hard to measure though because you don't want it too runny or it will leak.
It's amazing though how Henna makes you feel like you have so much hair!
My next wash day will be in two weeks. This works out perfectly, yet again, because the next two Saturdays I have to work.
