I just used Logona Henna on my hair on Friday night. The only problem that I am having now is that I cannot get a brush or even a wide tooth comb through it. My hair feels a little crunchy (which I've read is common) but I've conditioned over and over again with no help. I'm still tangly. Help!

what kind of conditioner did you use to solve the problem? It should be a no-protein one with lots of slip (Mega Moisture comes to my mind - I use Nivea conditioner, but I'm not sure if that is available in the US).
Could it be by any chance that you didn't rinse well enough? Did you try using lots of light conditioner after you rinsed out the henna, worked it into your hair and combed (fingers and wide toothed comb) it through the hair to remove the last bits of henna?
My hair is a little harder to comb after henna for about two washes, but I've never had problems as severe as you describe ... :(

It sounds like you may not have rinsed all the henna out of your hair. I had to learn the hard way to rinse thoroughly, and use conditioner to get all the henna out, as Madeleine suggested.
Even with rinsing well and a moisturizing conditioner, it usually takes a day or two before my hair feels normal again after a henna treatment.

I just henna'd for the first time a couple of weeks ago and had the same reaction. My hair was a tangly mess all the way up to the next wash day. I rinsed really carefully by dunking my head in a bucket of water first, then standing under the faucet for at least 10 minutes, then conditioning and rinsing thoroughly twice. After the shower when I noticed the horror that was going on up top, I slathered on some leave-in with 'cones and spent a while finger combing it, which got it to a nearly manageable point :rolleyes: . I guess it's one of the downsides to Henna we just have to learn to work through, eh?
