And I’m back + Air Eater Goes Red (Again)

  
  
What a fantastic week off, it was great to just bum around at home and… who am I kidding, I got things done while I was at it. Mat and I scouted locations for our Vegan Bloggers Unite! Conference (2013).

Also, a variety of chores/errands that are too boring to really mention. No one wants to read about how you had an oil change.

I enjoyed having time to meet with a client for Concept Branding as well as start talks with another client for a US project. Really enjoy the vegan love, it’s a great feeling when people want to come together and work within the community. Vegans helping vegans makes my heart warm.

On Wednesday we had dinner with our friend Laurie Sadowski. Laurie has been featured on VBU! and she is an author of a fantastic vegan/gluten free bread cook book: The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread.

 

I’m not the greatest when it comes to gluten free baking, so getting to pick her brain about what tips/tricks don’t translate from regular baking really was fun. On the plus side, she is a lovely person and incredibly entertaining to boot.

Then, the moment you’ve been waiting for – drum roll please!

Air Eater goes red (again)!

Here is the red henna mix as per the instructions from Morrocco Method Int’l:


I painted the colour on with an actual paint brush I bought from the dollar store, it was incredibly helpful with covering my head evenly. I let the mixture sit on my hair for an hour and I plastic wrapped my head in BPA plastic wrap. Mat had to help with this one. You can imagine the laughing and the squeals.

Yes, here I am in my dorky splendour:

As I didn’t like the way my hair was behaving afterwards in terms of style I will leave you with a close up shot of the colour. I went from a brown to copperish:

I’ll most likely change my Twitter/Facebook avi soon, I am adjusting to the new colour and I do believe I need an actual hair cut.

As for the process as a whole, it was a bit of a challenge as I didn’t expect there to be so many steps.  I do love how soft my hair feels. I believe I have found a new addiction of hair care, I haven’t found a vegan product that makes my hair feel as soft as Morrocco Method raw vegan shampoo. Seriously, I know what I’m buying myself for Christmas already.

There you have it! Now, back to recipes and product reviews.  I’ll leave you with Scooter “Good to be back”

  1. Thanks for the shout-out! Dinner with you guys was great (both food AND company).

    Your henna makes me crave peanut butter.

    I’m going to try the Morrocco Method hair products and I also want the try the henna, but I am so afraid. I have never used henna before and i heard it can be tricky to get the color you want. I work in an public office setting, so a funky outcome would not be an option… I have brown hair and have been buying dark blonde hair dye to get the brownish color without going too dark. So I am wondering if I can use the light brown henna. Were you overall happy with the coloring achieved with the henna red? Would you use it again? You stated there were multiple steps. Was it worth the effort to avoid all the harsh chemicals? Thanks for your response.

      Hi Kathy,
      Thanks for the comment. I would suggest trying the MM henna just because it was worth it to avoid chemicals. I do trust them for running an ethical company as well. I can’t say the same for other big name companies who test on animals. I know what you mean by not wanting the funky hair colour outcome. I didn’t have a strange reaction, I can’t imagine a light brown going wrong either. I’m sure you know when your hair starts to grow out and the roots show you’ll have to do a few re-touches, but the colour won’t fade as badly as I have had happen before. I would try it again, perhaps if I had a friend to help me with the saran wrapping my head part. That was a bit odd I’ll tell you that much, but the product didn’t drip, didn’t smell harsh and that was a big bonus for me. overall, I was happy with the colour.

      Let me know how it turns out – I’d love to know!
      Lidia :)
