Hi, thanks so much for sharing recipes. Can you do one for a leave in conditoner. This would be great.


Curlyproverbs is very familiar with henna amla etc. You might want to try the amla it is said to darken and strengthen hair- I 'm considering going that route. As stated henna is strengthening like protein. deep conditioning is ESSENTIAL! Also it is said to coat and protect and smooth hair cuticle. Good luck

Interesting post. It's actually my first time to hear about henna + indigo. Thanks for sharing. I would agree about the use of conditioner after.
