There's a little history with that knife. It was my mother's favorite knife and was passed down to me so it's pretty special.
Note that the slices are pretty thin; they'll dissolve a lot easier that way. Always always always cut AWAY from you if you slice soap! Did I mention to always cut in the direction away from you?
I used a Blonde Options bar because last time I used straight Chestnut self mix henna and it was just a touch darker than I really wanted. The Blonde only contains cassia and gives a very light blonde color.
The Chestnut is an equal mix of cassia, henna and indigo. It gives a lovely dark blonde to medium brown, depending on your starting color.
Pop chemistry question: Who can tell me why the temperature lowers?
We actually got involved in a movie and I left it on about 2 hours. I got fantastic color! :) The formerly gray hair is now a rich gold color, while the rest of my hair is a dark blonde.
