Henna and a Steamer

Post by newday on 4th December 2010, 2:31 pm

I bought a steamer a few days ago and I want to henna my hair. I usually leave the henna in for six hours then rinse and condition but this time I want sit under the steamer with the henna. I have heard that the steamer will help with the penetration and lessen the time. I have a few questions.
Has anyone henna and steamed before?
How long did you steam with the henna?
Did you just steam and then rinsed or did you leave the henna in for a few hours, then steamed?
Also, did you use a plastice cap when you steamed?

TIA

Henna and a Steamer

Post by Miss A on 9th December 2010, 2:38 pm

I use my steamer when I henna ...sometimes. I usually stay under the steamer for an hour without a plastic cap. I them put on plastic cap and leave the henna on for another 2-3 hours, depending on how much time I have.

I have also used a heat cap when apply henna. I apply the henna, put on a plastic cap and sit under the heat cap for an hour.

With or without henna the steamer also leaves my hair moisturized. Just be careful not to have your henna mix to liquidy (don't think that is a word) or it will run down your neck.

Good Luck

I completed my henna treatment over the weekend using the steamer. I henna'd for two hours total, one with plastic cap then the last under the steamer. After rinsing, I applied the indigo and steamed for 20 minutes. I think I will increase the indigo time to 40 minutes next time but here are my before and after pictures.

Before henna and indigo:

Looks great!

Henna and indigo can be a little drying. It's a good idea to dc after a henna treatment.

I recently tried indigo in my mix for the first time. I mix the henna, let it dye release overnight, mix in a little Amla. I mix the indigo in a separate container. Then I mix the indigo and henna together, mixing very well. Then apply.

The results were much darker (more brown) , less red that just straight henna.

Thanks Miss A. I agree about the henna and indigo being drying to the hair. I deep conditioned overnight with condish, honey and olive oil but I plan to DC again soon. I bought the Butter-n-bars masque and am dying to try. I hope it helps especially since it feels like I've been living in Michigan for the last week.

I know the feeling. It takes several dc sessions for my hair to feel fully moisturized.

I have to try this. I used the steamer after I rinsed out the henna and I deep conditioned my hair by using the steamer. Thanks for the info ladies.
