    Hi. Is it the henna that has your hair two-toned or  is that au-naturale. Also does the henna "loosen" you texture somewhat?

    ------------------

    Hi there. This is my natural hair colour. The 'henna' I use is Cassia also known as 'neutral henna' which I specifically chose because I didn't want to alter the colour of my hair, which i love. That being said, with the flash from the camera (and very bright sunlight) the red/auburn/gold tones in my hair appear alot brighter than they would in regular lighting. 

    I do the cassia treatments to strengthen and thicken my hair. I was having a problem with breakage because of some meds i was on, and since i introduced cassia to my routine I've noticed alot less breakage. I don't think it is loosening my hair texture, I certainly hope not...

    Yummo!
    Yummy.  I had some avocados and considered for a minute to use some in my hair.  My stomach won so I ended up eating them all. lol.

    -----------------

    LOL @ "for a minute"  I can understand totally, avocados are so yummy! I think that's probably why this is only about the second or time in my nappy history using avocado on my hair...I usually eat mine too!

    As a thick-haired natural, I struggle with puffs. Do you have any tips you could spare? (Or hair? I do take hair donations, lol j/k)

    ----------------------------

    *hides hair under scarf* no hair donations today, sorry! =)

    As my hair got thicker and longer I had to change my technique for doing puffs. I have my technique here in my "Hairstyle how-to's" Album:


    This technique shows how to go from night time plaits to a puff and gives me a neat, smooth puff. I find that if my hair is already loose and i want to go to a high neat puff i usually just divide my hair loosely into a few manageable sections and start in the middle to form the puff just like the tutorial shows. Let me know if it helps...
