Fringe!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!

Got my hair cut today! Decided to change things up a bit and got a block fringe. :)

For everyone asking, I dye my hair with Henna! It’s 100% natural, made from plants, and gives a fantastic colour. What’s more, it doesn’t damage your hair – it actually conditions it – and gives it a beautiful shine!

My natural hair is a mousy light brown colour, but Henna makes it a luscious dark red. It’s unbelievably inexpensive (£4 a box!), although if a little messy to put on.. I fully recommend it to anyone who wants red hair in great condition!

I last dyed my hair with Henna about 6 weeks ago, so the colour isn’t that strong at the moment, it needs doing again soon. :)

    It looks so pretty, the color and the cut. I’ve been thinking about coloring mine too. I like the idea of henna. I saw some at the Japanese market, but it was pricey. I have been playing with my hair a lot, as far as cut also.

      Thanks! :) Henna really is fantastic. As I said, it’s a bit messy, but some hairdressers will actually put it in for you if you don’t want to do it yourself! It’s definitely worth the mess.

      You should be able to find it for quite cheap somewhere. Any kind of wholefood shops normally sell it, or depending where you are, you can often get it online for really cheap prices.

      Do you have a LUSH cosmetics near you? They stock henna in solid cubes. I personally prefer the powder form, but the LUSH stuff is really good too. It’s a little but more expensive £7ish, but still much cheaper if you put it on yourself or get a friend to do it, than having it dyed in a salon with damaging chemicals! :) Have at look at their website: https://www.lush.co.uk/product/78/Caca-Rouge-Henna

    Love the Henna (Wrote about it too; http://dlcsmanagement.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/conscious-colouring-natural-and-plant-based-hair-colouring/ )
    but over here in the Netherlands there’s no way to get it that cheaply!

    Such a cute haircut! I love the fringe. It definitely makes you look older and ready for university!

    Love your hair. I’ve been debating doing mine. Is there any specific company you get your dye from?

      I’ve used the solid henna cubes from LUSH cosmetics in the past, and I’d probably recommend them to start with. Although I personally prefer the powder form, because you have to chop/grate the LUSH henna, it can be difficult to get hold of, and the LUSH stuff is really good too. It’s very popular, and chances are you have a shop near you (especially if you’re in the UK). Here’s their website to take a look at: https://www.lush.co.uk/product/78/Caca-Rouge-Henna

      I’ve bought Henna from lots of different places over the years. Any kind of wholefood shop will normally sell it, I have one nearby me and I often get it from there, but again it can be quite difficult to get hold of. I recently bought some online, which is especially good if you know which Henna you want to buy (it comes in lots of different forms and colours). Buying it in bulk online actually turned out much less expensive for me, but I’m a big fan of Henna and bought 30 boxes.

      Let me know if you have any more questions! :)

    I used to henna my hair. It’s great for improving the condition as well as the colour. You look good :)

      Thank you!! :) I love yours in your display picture there, we have quite similar hair actually! :)
      At the moment I’m using a pure henna powder called Henna Masria in ‘fiery red’. It’s a bit more of an orangey red, but I love it, and I can get it from a shop near me so it’s easier :)
      I’ve mentioned LUSH solid henna cubes in the comments above; I’ve used that quite a few times before and found it really good, but it’s a bit more expensive and not quite as easy to use as you have to grate/chop it yourself first!
      Thanks for visiting! Hope to see you again :)
