Dear Student,
We regret to inform you that the class you enrolled in, as outlined below, has been cancelled.

Seriously??? I get this email the day after I buy my books. SERIOUSLY? I got one of these emails a few weeks ago, but it was followed immediately by a "oops, disregard that email" a few minutes later. The same class too. And the alternate classes they suggest don't work with my schedule. Bastards.

Anyway, today I found my sample of henna I requested many months ago, and I decided to do a strand test. I got some hair from some brushes and mixed up a batch of henna. Mmm hay smell. It's a little watery than it should be, I didn't let the dye release long enough, and it's sort of old, but that shouldn't be a huge problem. It's an experiment anyway. If I like how it turns out, I'll consider buying Caca Rouge or Caca Marron or some grams of pure henna from the site I got the free sample from.

I have no idea what color it's going to be. From a distance, it's quite dark. Sort of up close it's a little lighter. Individual strands are surprisingly light and are sort of red. SO CURIOUS!! BE DONE HENNA!

Either way, I won't do anything now (besides Lush is out of stock) because I hate my hair now. It's a stupid length and blerg. It's just taking too long to grow. I think I'll like the length come February though. Maybe I should pay the money to get it trimmed.

Getting back to the henna, it's sitting in cling wrap by a heat vent keeping warm so the dyes will be released. I also added some lemon juice, paprika, and camomile tea to encourage it. It's been soaking for three hours, so another three hours to go! Hurray! I'll post pics when it's done! Yes!

You know, doing henna would be a fantastic excuse to sit around and watch all million hours of Pride and Prejudice. Maui, loves it!

3 hours....? seems a bit long? I have dark brown hair and when I used henna ( a vvvvv long time ago, it turned my grey hairs (started at 16) a brassy orangey red. you can get different colours though.

I've read anywhere from 2-6 hours, but I'm not sure when I'll rinse it out. It's also old henna so I don't know how potent it still is. And like I said above, I have very dark hair and I wouldn't want to go through all of the trouble and have almost no difference in color

Whatever, it's just hair! I'll probably bitch and moan about it if it doesn't turn out how I want, but whatever. I'll probably pull it soon and rinse it out because I don't think I could sit still for six hours with a poo helmet so it's a little unrealistic to keep the test sample on so long.

mmm, and it's an ONLINE class too. The two classes they offered instead aren't and they just don't work with my schedule.
Also: the henna didn't work out that good either. I was too impatient and didn't make it properly or use it quick enough. I'll try to get some more samples or just bite the bullet and try it.
