The postman just delivered my Henna I ordered from Lush!
I'm so excited! This stuff is really green & scary looking!!
Shoot, I have pomade in my hair, I guess I really should shampoo my hair or would I be able to get away with a baking soda & conditioner mix? My pomade is water based, if that makes a difference.
If anyone has suggestions for a first timer go ahead and throw them my way!! I'll go wash my hair as it takes a couple of hours for it to dry!!
Yippee! I'm going to henna my hair today!!

I forgot to ask! Is it better to henna on wet/damp hair or completely dry hair??

I'm currently doing my strand test, I also have a question.
The directions say to cover with a plastic cap to get more red highlights or not to cover so there will be more brown as opposed to red highlights.
The question is, shouldn't henna remain damp on the hair to get its full benefits?

Don't let the green scare ya. It'll turn your hair, skin, clothes and any wayward animals red if you let it.
I find the henna covers better when I apply it to wet (but not dripping) hair. It's easier to spread for me. I don't know what kind of hair you have, but mine is on the thick side so I need all the help I can get to get the coverage.
Enjoy and let us know how it turns out!
I've always put a plastic shower cap on my hair. I can't imagine going without one, I'd have plops of henna everywhere. Unless you are planning on sitting in the tub nude for 6 hours. :?

If you don't want red tones, don't cover it, sit in the tub with a towl under you so your comfy, bring books, magazines and a bath pillow and the clock.
If you do cover, you'll have an easier time of it.
I think Lush henna directions say to apply to dry hair. I don't buy Lush anymore, it's too much work having to grind the blocks to a powder.
I'm excited to know how your turns out.
