Instead of a full strength henna I did a henna gloss with pre-made henna from a couple of months ago. I kept it stored in the freezer wrapped in saran wrap. I let it thaw out and mixed it with a conditioner I wasn't really that fond of. It left a little color on my hair but henna glosses are more so for conditioning as you are added in more conditioner than anything else. After rinsing I didn't need to deep conditioner, I just conditioned and went along my way. 5 napps up to henna gloss!!
