In January last year, I realised I was getting wiser. Big time. There were more greys on my head than I could count. Whoohoo. Honestly, I don’t mind. If I did, I would have rushed outside, bought a dye kit and hid my new signs of wisdom from everybody. But I’m wise enough to know that those dye kits are filled with chemicals that damage the quality of your hair.
So I asked someone even wiser than me for some advice. My mum. She taught me all about henna. For a long time – say 6000 years – henna’s been used to dye skin, hair and fingernails.
