No More Hair Dye | Why I am revisiting henna for hair.
No More Hair Dye. About a year ago, I decided to give henna a break since I have not gotten the best experience. My hair would always appear to feel dry, even though my hair color and shine were beautiful. I would condition my hair weekly then follow up with my occasional root touch-ups, hair moisturizing, and oiling. Still, I had dehydrated hair. So, I decided to give up on henna (after seven years of using henna) to figure out what I was doing wrong. During that time, I turned to commercial hair dye.
