Mud Head Again

Who remembers the last Mud Party? Here we go again!

This is the in-progress picture! I've still got three more hours with this cake of henna on my head. I think I did it a little better than last time, but I'm still not sure if I got everything. My hair is so very hard to section (I think I mentioned that last time).

But I've got plenty to do to occupy my time while it sets! I've got crocheting and some macramé, and yes, I did manage to find both sets of the Defenders of the Earth series. We also go the Transformers Movie soundtrack that needs converting to mp3's. And then there's laundry. Plenty of things to do.

Tomorrow is kayaking, then I've got eight more work days until I leave for Idaho. Wow. It seems like I was lamenting about my trip being four months away not too long ago. Two weeks from today, I'll be at Goddessfest. Time flies! And we knew it would.

It'll fly while I'm there too. But hey, at least my hair will be red!

Cute picture! Do you like the henna better than other types of hair dye? I love my blue hair but it's killing my natural curls. See you soon!!!...

I like what it does to my hair better than the commercially available chemicals. But, it's not an easy process to go through. Section hair to be sure to get all roots (hard!), slather on mud like icing a cake (goopy!), wait four hours (tired!), soak head in bathtub (heavy!), condition and complete!

Otherwise, yes, I like the color, I don't mind the smell, and I really like that it's not a bunch of really reeking chemicals. I bet henna would work well with your curls!
