Names withstanding this is how the conversation went:


I was born a redhead - auburn, actually. And about 10 years ago, I decided I was not ready to let it go dark brown & grey. I call it "henna-assisted living."

So, I'm sitting here with the goop on my head and it's got another half hour or so to go, and I'm browsing here remembering why I go through all of this. I might be ready to quit it in a year or few, but I have decided that I am willing to be grey or overweight, but NOT both. So I have some work to do before I am ready to let the henna go.


Just chatting. Nothing important.



Hi... I've tried Henna myself a time or two.... didn't get the color i wanted so went back to the "box"...... Just wondering how you prepare and use the henna? I looked online and their suggestion was to mix it with lemon juice and let that sit, covered, over night in a warm place. Then put it on your hair and let that sit for 3-4 hours....... I did make sure I used the body art quality, so I didn't end up with green hair....LOL

Just curious....... Maggie :D



I just follow the package instructions on Light Mountain Henna, Red.

No, I don't use lemon juice.

It has to be hot when you put it on and blow drying is a must to keep hair pores open to absorb color. It stops working when it gets cold. I leave it on for 2 hours.

Here are a couple of links on "how to"

I use either firey red or dark red depending.

I mis mine with hot water and lemon juice and sometimes some other red herbs and leave it on overnight. It fades over time for me, being really vivid at the start but softening to a copper brown after a month or so.

I am naturally a light borwn/blonde.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
