I am making a few changes to my life not because I want but because I have to. I stopped using eyes make-up about two months and I am trying to cover my gray roots with henna. About two years ago, I found out that I suffer from Excema and that the chemicals on hair products and make-up are some of the triggers. I spent about two months with my eyelids swollen and red. My eyes got so sensitive that even washing them to try to get the water-proof mascara made them red and swollen. I like to wear mascara and eyeliner so this is a big adjustment for me. I am not ready to show my gray roots on my hair either so I am trying henna to cover them. My first experiment with Henna was long, messy and did not give me the results I wanted. My hair looks healthy and natural but the gray hair only got a yellow tint. I know dying with henna takes time to see what works with each person so I will give it another try. I will keep you posted. In term of make-up. I will some natural products but in the meantime I want to give a rest to my eyelids and go natural.
