I have had hair henna from LUSH sitting around my apartment for at least a couple of months now. I finally got around to doing a strand test this afternoon. I hate doing them and usually skip them altogether but after trying to dye my hair the last time I was pregnant I decided to put up with the inconvenience.

When I was pregnant with Riley I wanted to dye my hair a really nice, rich dark brown. However, it turned out blonder than when I had started. The colour looked fine on me but it was not what I had wanted or expected. Pregnancy hormones!!! This time I thought I would try a more natural route and see what happens.

For the strand test I wrapped the test section in plastic wrap. According to the directions this makes for a redder result. Leaving your hair exposed results in a browner result. I am aiming for browner but wanted to see what would happen the other route and I also wanted to protect the surrounding hair in case the colour was a no go. The wrapped section turned out a nice bright auburny shade. I am hoping that unwrapped I will get a deeper shade. I am going to dye all of my hair tonight and find out!

Here is a before picture of my messy, partially highlighted hair. (Partly due to highlights put in in March and partly due to Ontario sun a couple of weeks ago.)
