Oil is for henna tattoos not for hair!
I have seen and talked to way to many women that are stuck in the vicious cycle of putting oil in there hair. It takes a long time to get away from it and most don’t have the patients to wait.
Do your self a favor and throw it out and get on henna hair dye. We are talking a year maybe 2, however once you do you will break the chains of oil. Your hair produces oil naturally and most of you have fried your hair with chemicals. Hair grows slow and takes time to grow out. When you put oil in your hair, it stops the natural process and your hair drys out again, thus needing more oil! It is a vicious cycle and one you can get out of, you just need be patient and persistent. Once your hair regrows it will produce natural oils, unless you keep using chemicals.
One thing that is important when it comes to mixing henna is henna oil. Some call it essential oil, I call it henna oil. Oil is primarily for henna tattoos, however in some cases it can be used with henna. The only case is with pure henna. Lawsonia enermas loves oil, however any other henna hair dye color does not. It will strip indigo and clay leaving you with a natural red orange.
I recommend henna oil for henna tattoo mixes and for use of taking henna tattoos off. Some like to use henna oil on the spot they will apply the henna tattoo.
