This woman is wonderfully braided! I especially like the one lock that comes forward. I suspect she has silk threads woven into her hair, but without better focus, and color printing, I can't really tell.

I think she also has a chin tattoo and a forehead tattoo, though the photograph isn't as well focused as one might hope.

Gray Roots, Red Strands

I am going to apply henna/indigo to my gray roots.  However, I have some random red strands throughout--gray hairs that I henna'd and applied indigo previously, but the indigo didn't take.

I want to try again and dye these red hairs with indigo, but do I need to re-apply henna, or can i go straight to indigo?  Thx.

two tone henna

For the two tone do you just put on a thin layer or do you have to take it off after a while?  I wanted to use a paint brush to do a lighter base coat and then put the detail on with a cone.  Will that work?

Can demised henna condition hair?

I read somewere that demised henna is not useless overall, that it can still be used to condition hair even if it does not stain or stains very little. Is that really true?
