Well, I knew about the dik diks. Homeschooling and curious kidlets, doncha
As to henna, used to use it back in the dark ages. Loved it except that it
stinks. Of course, I have dark hair, so I could a lovely auburn with almost
bright burgandy like highlights. It is a natural product, so it doesn't
give you Barbie hair.
Might not do such a hot job unless you can get some "body art" henna. Most
henna sold for hair use is "compound" henna and they have metallic salts in
them. Compound henna plus dyed or permed hair = dead hair. As in shave
your head and start over dead, brittle, breaks off, gone. If you can find
"pure" or "body art" henna, then do a test patch to see if you are going to
look like a stop light or a strawberry blonde or something inbetween.
Back in the day we only had the pure henna and you mixed it with lemon juice
or vinegar, hence that really yucky smell. With the "pure" or "body art"
hennas your hair comes out really shiney, silky and no split ends.
