November 24, 2021 2 min read



You've done it! The henna is in and your hair is covered. The hard part is done. Your henna and YOU TIME are now both ACTIVATED. Time to enjoy every. last. minute. of. it!

"Erghh, henna takes so long". This seems to be something that comes up every now and then when the topic of henna application is discussed. Here at KNOT OKAY., we are all about self care and get excited at the thought of taking time out for ourselves. But we get it. Sometimes it's difficult to know what to do in the time your henna is doing its thing. That's why we've put together our best picks for what to do when you henna your hair!

1. Clear your space

Marie Kondo isn't famous for nothing, right? The art of decluttering has peaked in popularity and we know we feel 100% better when our things are neatly packed away. Why don't you try some decluttering whilst you henna your hair? Your future self will thank you and there is something deeply satisfying about learning to fold a fitted sheet... Cue an instagram post.

2. Indulge in a big cup of tea

We are weeping with joy at the thought of sitting with a cup of tea, quietly breathing in a moment of calm. We guarantee that you will feel 100% more productive sipping tea with your hair full of earthy henna too!

3. Hopin' for a soak'n

Get out the bubble bath, your favourite podcast and enjoy a deep soak. Not only is taking a bath a great option whilst your henna your hair, submerging yourself in water at chest height can positively influence your lung capacity helping you breath easier, calms your nervous system and gives your muscles some much needed love. Sounds too good to be true!

4. Did someone say mini dance break?!

Oh right... it was us. Time to shake your booty in the comfort of your own home. That henna hair isn't going to stop you from turning up your favourite tunes and showing us what your mamma gave you. You could even start a Tik Tok account - 'Dancing Lady with Henna Hair Dye' has a nice ring to it!

5. Become that loving plant parent you've always wanted to be.

Maybe it's time to step up to the plate as a #plantparent. Check out our article Why you need more plants in your space if you need more convincing.

We are all very familiar with the impact that single use plastic is having on our planet. If you are not aware, then perhaps some may say that you have been 'living under a rock'. But even so, you have probably been under the rock with either a plastic water bottle, a couple of straws and 10 lollipop sticks.
