Mag165, 4/21/13, On Impulse

                                                              Monhegan's Schoolteacher, 2004 by Jamie Wyeth 






 It was a moonlit night, she could not sleep.
In her journal she had written a henna rinse 
recipe for her hair. What a perfect opportunity! 
  Close to midnight she sat by the window
drying her hair with a soft cloth. Reading the
following paragraph in the original book;
she became concerned.It mentioned a little known
herb- that was also difficult to find. 
Oh my I hope this rinse works well without it
There was mention that sunlight could turn hair 
orange in some instances...

Izzy your are already a "standout"...and now, orange haired? About your henna rinse: I used to drink something like that when I was broke...LOL!

I can totally relate to your delightful hair coloring take...

Karen S. said...

Oh no not orange....but then orange may be much prettier than green! I like the way you went with this, because actually her drying of her hair nearly distracted me!

Lyn said...

Love this...funny, mine turned green one starry night! You never know with henna.

Yours is the only Mag I've read so far and it's a goodie. I used henna rinses in my hair from high school through college, always with good results. Can still remember the metallic smell of the brand my sis and I used. Fun memories. Thanks.
