I had a Harley Davidson audition in El Segundo so I found a henna place on the way home to #DTLA. I wanted to go to the first place I went to get henna but Artesia would have been too far to get back in time.
I was impressed by her design and detail. The henna seemed different but I didn’t think it would be when it came off.
After she was done with the design, she blow-dried my hand and put a lemon juice ointment thing on it.She said it would help make the color darker.
I paid almost triple what I paid last time ($25 + $10 tip, 1st time : $10 + $10 tip) and I get it… It’s the time, effort, design, detail and all that stuff but if it’s not great quality, none of that really matters!
As I was paying (which at the moment, I didn’t care how much) the lady told me to not wash it off and to leave it alone for 3-4 hours!!! I shrieked because I told her I had to be somewhere at 7pm and I needed to go home and curl my hair.
I hoped that by the time I got home, it would have stained more than the last time. I assumed everything different they did would make it look darker than the first place.
When I got home, it started to crack and I could see the stained design on my skin. The surprise was, it wasn’t dark. It was light and I needed to curl my hair!
I ended up curling my hair with one hand, which btw, it is impossible and I’m more grateful NOW, to have, two hands. I washed it off and was supremely disappointed in the outcome. It was faint and from afar, it looked like I got a burn on my hand. It was orange and not cute. I was leaving to a party shortly and I was actually embarrassed about showing my hand. :(
The place I went to was Daxa Beauty & Threading Salon, don’t go here.
How it looks now…
