I finally took pictures of my hair in the sun this morning and I loovvveeeeee it. *Insert all the heart eyes*

My henna hair May 2016

I tugged my hair out of my ponytail while on my morning run and snapped these.

This color is the result of 3 henna applications:

♥ First: Rajasthani indian henna + indigo (recipe posted here, application posted here, and results here)

♥ Second: Jamila henna (recipe posted here, application + resulted posted here)

♥ Third: Jamila henna (application + results posted here)


  1. Love the color! I’ve been wanting to try henna and thanks to your post I’ve decided to try it this summer.

  2. I would like to wear my hair out. I never do, I always wear buns or box braids. Its easy, but kinda boring I guess. I tried a twist out with diy flax seed gel once, but my hair didnt dry in time so I had to bun instead :-). I love watching you enjoy your hair!

      Buns and box braids are great, simple protective styles. I bet your hair has flourished from them. And aww thank you!!! ?

  3. Your hair looks absolutely beautiful Jen! Gorgeous color!
    My scab hair phase is over but I’ve only been bunning as usual. I will take your example. It is way past time to switch up my look.
