Cover your head: Use a plastic bag, a shower cap or ceran wrap to cover your head. This keeps the moisture and the temperature up. For comfort and additional protection of the process you can also wrap a
towel or a scarf around it. Make it fairly stable since you will wear this for a while.
Processing time: For best results consider to be called „mud head“ for four hours. You can theoretically also leave it on over night and sleep with it, but I am not sure if that would contribute to a
very restful sleep and clean pillows. In the end the processing time depends on the intensity of the color that you want and on your STRAND TEST.
Rinse, Rinse, Rinse! Warm water, lots of it, together with some patience on your side and no panic in the shower will get all of the henna out of your hair. It is important to rinse well.
Your hair will have a very herbal smell for a while, which is of a pleasant earthiness, however some people are not happy with it. It will disappear after a few washes.
If things do not work out as expected and you are not happy with the results, please check out our instructions for removing henna from your hair.
But that won't be necessary. If you do your diligent preparations, your own research, so that you are fully aware of what to expect and what you want, then you will soon be flaunting your new spicy and firey mane!
