Henna Mix w/ Safflower Oil Results

This morning I did a henna treatment with henna mixed with lemon juice an 1/4 cup of safflower oil. I let the mixture set on my hair for a little over 4 hours rinsed out with Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deep Moisture Conditioner and used JCWDC as a deep conditioner for an hour. After I massaged my scalp with Wild Growth Hair Oil and applied my leave in conditioner mix with the light version of the WGHO. The results???

1. When I rinsed out the henna I noticed immediately how easy it was to rinse. In the past it took several applications of conditioner to get the henna rinsed. This time I only had to apply conditioner twice and rinsed. There was still some henna in the hair but when I rinsed after d/c it was all gone.

2. My hair didn't feel dry or brittle after rinsing. However it looks as though my hair did get darker. Not sure how or what caused this but I don't mind it. I also noticed little springs of curls at the ends of my twists. My hair felt pretty good.

3. After the deep conditioning and leave in my hair looks and feels awesome. No dry, crunchy, brittleness. My twists feel soft and moisturized. There is even some shine creeping in.

Final Judgement: Looks like safflower oil is a definite go for my henna treatments. I'll be using this again and again. I'm glad I came up with the idea!
