Henna for Black Hair with 10-80% grey

My hair is Type 2C Wavy and thick (Fii– meaning if I tie my hair into 1 pony tail it will be about 4 inches in diameter)…it is quite long (tips reaches just below my breast– near the liver area…so without lighting it looks drab and almost scary looking.. I hope to add shine and highlights aside from covering the grey on my fringe.

Roots of my fringe (lots of grey)

My hair color is black with about 10% grey.. see# 5 below

My hair is similar to #5 (black with 10% grey). My mother's hair is similar to #6 (black with 80% grey)
My hair is similar to #5 (black with 10% grey). My mother’s hair is similar to #6 (black with 80% grey)

If I apply pure BAQ (body art quality) Henna, it will turn out like the below #5

If we will apply the same type of BAQ Henna, my hair will turn out like #5 and my mother's will turn out like #6.
If we will apply the same type of BAQ Henna, my hair will turn out like #5 and my mother’s will turn out like #6 (so I will add Indigo to her henna mix).

I am going to follow this procedure to apply Henna on my Hair this coming Friday…

For Light BRown highlights effect (Grey will turn light brown- while my black hair would be warm black?)
Ratio is 2/3 Henna to 1/3 Indigo
• Mix henna with lemon juice, grapefruit juice, rainwater, or other mildly acidic liquid, and let it sit
for 12 hours at 75F or 24 C. Add enough liquid to make a paste about the consistency of stirred up
•Mix indigo with warm water and let it sit for 1 minute. Mix them together. The more indigo you
add, the darker the brown. The more henna you add, the redder the brown.
• Section your hair, and apply the paste to your scalp, and gradually work it into all of your hair.
Wear plastic gloves, because the paste will stain your hands. Carefully wipe the paste away from
forehead and ears, because it will stain skin.
• Wrap your hair in plastic, and wrap a towel around that to reduce mess, and increase warmth.
• Leave the paste in your hair for 1 to 5 hours. If you put a dryer bonnet on over your wrapped hair,
and heat it, you’ll get more stain faster.
• Rinse the paste out.
• The stain will darken over the next 2 days. If there’s a slight green cast, that will go away in 1 day.

I saw this on flickr.. it seems we have the same natural hair color (black) but hers is about 50-80% grey mine is only about 10%

Pre Henna 2012

and this is how it turned out after she hennaed her hair (pure Henana no Cassia no Indigo):

Post Henna - Day 3 - Final color

My mother also have 80% grey on her black hair, but she prefers dark brown– rather than black with red highlights so I will add indigo onto her henna mix.

You may think.. what does Henna have to do with Fasting and Cleansing? well aside from vanity (covering my grey hair) .. there are also some health benefits..not that i have headlice, ringworm or dandruff though.

From http://www.hennaforhair.com/health/index.html:

    Henna has been traditionally used as a safe and effective effective cure for head lice, dandruff and ringworm, remedy, but may not appropriate for everyone.
    Henna has been demonstrated to be an effective analgesic for hand/foot syndrome from chemotherapy, and appears to be a safe and effective remedy, but is currently being clinically tested, so verification and FDA approval have not yet been granted.
    Henna has been traditionally used to treat fingernail and toenail fungus, and appears to be a safe and effective remedy.
    Many people find that henna can be therapeutic when used on palms and soles before dancing and drumming.
    Though henna tea has been traditionally used as a therapeutic for stomach upset, it is NOT safe and effective to do so.

A word from MH and from his customers

From MH himself:

People do have some degree of choice, but that choice was known before they were born, so there is never a surprize or chaos in the universe.

Success comes by way of acceptanace that all is God’s Timing and those that wait, are always busy living life to the fullest education.

NEVER TRY to do anything on your own, it will fail……..wait until God directs, because what God does is always done perfect the first time. Accept what God brings into your life, because “all” is done for a reason. Don’t think “you” need better, because as long as “you” are choosing, you will choose wrong…learn to accept what God provides and not the world.

It really is that simple—–just acceptance. If you accept your earthly education your ship will finally sail in…if you fight it, you will drown in sorry and despair.

From one of MH’s customers:

You’ll find a hodge-podge of stuff in natural medicine that doesn’t hold water. It’s very mixed up, some of it is crap for the supplements, and too difficult to put the pieces together. It won’t work on a toxic body, anyway. The more toxic the body, the less any natural supplements will work because the nutrients can’t get to the cells. It’s the cells doing their designed function that says whether a body is healthy or not. Especially if the supplements aren’t food based, they will not work or are mirror images of the natural found in plant life. Like MH has said, the key to health is clean blood. In order for that to happen, you have to eliminate the “dirt” your body has collected over the years in the colon and in the liver. That would be the bugs and stones and chemical poisons ingested as well as dead cells. once that’s accomplished, the lymphatic system automatically drains and it’s bug and other debris has to be flushed out of the liver. The liver filters the blood AND the lymph. Then the blood can clean out the tissues. Blood is a tissue. If the order of cleansing isn’t followed, the junk that comes out of tissue and goes into the blood will make you sick for a while until it goes back into the tissue. You wont’ be able to et rid of it IF the channels of elimination aren’t opened up and working right.
Natural iodine. Ryan Drum, PhD has some good information or do MH’s plant iodine.

My thoughts in just a few words:
Lugol’s Iodine and even Vitamin C are chemically made in a laboratory! Its toxic!.. What we need are natural Iodine and vitamin C from plant sources.

Let thy food be thy medicine! God made plants and trees for our sustenance and healing.

21 days of True OJ fasting – eating 1 meal a day starting Day 22

Epsom Salt Foot soak (not just for the magnesium but also sulfate transdermal absorption)
Well first of all, I celebrated my Day 21 by doing mini – diy spa treatments.

– epsom salt foot soak followed by an olive oil foot wrap
– my facial oil cleansing

I must admit its really hard to do the true OJ fast (nothing but OJ) while working. There is so much distraction and temptations.

So, from Day 22 started eating 1 meal at night, which MH also suggests for those who are doing the 40 day OJ fast who have a day job. So, whats the result when I started eating 1 meal a day? I started feeling that dull ache on the liver area again. Which was relieved by chiropractic adjustments and also the epsom salt foot soak.

plus Orange Juice and other juice blends

I am also doing another Liver Flush this coming Friday- Day 26 (I will start Friday afternoon)= as I do not want to miss Sunday worship service …

Thats why am doing another liver flush (this will be my second flush of a series of 5 flushes -2 weeks apart — for 2013). This is to address the ache/pain on my liver area, which I believe is due to inflammation/gall bladder stones.

Read this curezone thread to understand why I think juice fasting, 1 meal a day (to build up the bile), and then doing a series of liver flush makes sense to me:

In between my fasting and flushing, I will try to be as close to the 80/10/10 diet only with the addition of plant fats (avocado, olive oil, coconut oil or nuts) and also herbs.

I will also be adding the following juice blends in the next 21 days

Basic Blend (as the foundational part of all the other blends)

Base Juice
Fresh Coconut
Fresh Soy Bean
Fresh Almond Milk
Black Molasses
Baked Sesame
Raw Ginger

Brain Restoring Blend

Fatty Acids
Flaxseed Oil
Wheat Germ Oil
Pumpkin Seed Oil

Fiber / Other Nutrients
Green Apple
Raw Carrot
Fresh Mango

Blood Replenishment Blend

Black Grapes
Black Berries
Black Bean (raw & sprouted overnight)
Black / Red Dates (raw & sprouted overnight)
Raw Spinach

Digestive Aiding Blend

Lemon (skinned)
Lime (skinned)
Oranges (skinned) – of course ! its a staple

Green Apple
Pineapple (including the core)

I also just want to share my daughter’s notes for last Sunday’s sermon.. This is precisely the reason why, I do not believe in faith healers or faith healing per se…
The healing miracles performed during Biblical times were performed by God himself or men specifically chosen to spread God’s message of salvation. But healing itself is not the sole focus of those miracles.. it was the actual message. So, yeah I do believe in God’s saving grace (as it relates to sin) and that still God works in our midst so that we will heal.. but we can never escape the consequences of breaking the natural law.. and God allows us to suffer through those consequences but He also allows and lets us know the way out (not through miracle healing anymore though).

Day 19: Clearer skin with fasting, oil cleansing and lymph drainage massage for the face


Aside from OJ fasting, I also do oil cleansing for my face with castor oil and olive oil. Notice that the pores on my cheeks and my laugh line is less noticeable now. Overall my skin also looks clearer. Last Sunday I also tried lymph drainage massage as part of my oil cleansing.

I did the oil cleansing every other day at night before bed. I dont use soap on my face. Every other day ( the day after oil cleanse), I scrub my face gently with the orange pulp, then put a tiny bit of olive oil as moisturiser before I go to work. I enjoy the smoothness and softness of my facial skin throughout the day.

excerpt from :

There are however two things you should not do.

1. Don’t use cheap olive oil, it doesn’t work. Only buy extra virgin olive oil from Spain. It’s the purest olive oil, with no blends of different oils and no additives, so there’s nothing in it to irritate your skin. It’s slightly higher priced than olive oil from Italy or Greece, but well worth the extra dollar.

2. Some people make the mistake of cleaning their face with olive oil and then washing it off with soap. If you do that, you have just defeated the object of the exercise and, likely, your skin will remain acne-ridden and poor.

Olive oil not only cleanses, it moisturizes and protects. The antioxidants in it improve your skin, help to fade old acne scars, and the oil balances your skin perfectly so, eventually, what was once ‘oily skin’ will be normal like almost everyone else’s. Using soap destroys that balance and destroys all the positive effects of the olive oil. Don’t use it. Your skin does not need it.

I added a bit of castor oil though, as castor oil helps to pull dead skin cells and also toxins.

a few words from MH:
.it would be very “EASY” to blend a potent plant oil formula specifically for the treatment of acne and be ‘fun” for anyone…..but they should never ignore the colon and all of the elimination organs and get the worms and waste out…..because the skin never lies…it shows an internal problem if the skin is not perfect…..people who have perfect skin are all beautiful….always….nature never lies. While bad skin is never attractive and in nature, it is all about attractiveness….survival of the fittest….the desirable people make the next generation, while the outcast fade away…that is NATURE.

Day 13: woohoo! Storm is over

The calm after the storm thats exactly how I describe how I feel today. You know how it is when you walk outside after heavy rain? The air seems cleaner and the water drenched vegetation seems greener and healthier too? Thats exactly how I feel now…

Immediately after i drank my first dose of epsom salts the body ache is gone..by midnight I broke into a sweat and I know this is it! i am about to have a break through..I feel ill about the taste of epsom salts and the grapefruit/olive oil potion (who wouldnt) … But I pushed through… I still felt very weak in the morning but gained my strength by eating a few fruits at a time every 2 hours… Now am fully functional
Again! Wheew!

By the way I expelled about 600 stones today.. I will do another flush 2 weeks from now.
