It turned out okay. I did it in the bathroom, definitly needed a mirror to do it.lol The henna did not like to stick near my roots. It was icing consistency, maybe a little thicker. I have dark hair and that didn't pick up much of the colour, but I had blond(they were supposed to be red when she did them,lol) which was done in March all over the top layer and that is a brighter red/orange. I added paprika to the mix to make it oranger.
I did it at 10:30pm, wrapped it in saran wrap and then a towel to sleep(with a towel under me to catch anything through the night). I rinsed it out in the shower at 9:30 am. It took 2 shampoos & 2 conditioners to get it all out which I had expected.
The only bad part was the smell. I had been reading and people were saying it smelled like hay or straw, they lied. I grew up on a farm and have been around both my entire life and it did not smell anything close to either one of them. It actually made me(and dh) sick, I could not stand it. I had tried putting TTO in after the dye released to try and cover it up, it didn't work. The only time it smelled good was when I was shampoo'ing. The mix of the henna & shampoo smelled like pineapple which the shampoo does not ever smell like. It stopped stinking bad yesterday afternoon and now smells the tiniest bit like straw.
