Love Is Enough by William Morris Love is enough: though the World be a-waning, And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining, Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder, Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass’d over, Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter; The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

Fresh Henna Collage

A collage of my freshly #hennaed #hair. I did put some #sunin on it first…partly to see if it affected the condition as last time I tried it I didn’t rinse well and it was hard to tell if I had powder residue or if there was a dryness. The thing is, with peroxide (or honey) lifting the cuticles there are some benefits…the henna penetrates deeper and lifts the natural pigment so it looks redder. But also, for good deep conditioning you need to lift the cuticles a bit so the oils can permeate. Often soaping agents are used for this…I wonder if peroxide may do the same. It is used in hair dyes to fix colour by doing this. And henna acts naturally to smooth the cuticles and improve condition. This week’s experiment I would have to say was fabulous. The colour is a perfect copper and as you can see from the collage, in different lights, henna changes colour. It looks very natural. And no dryness at all. It is a little frizzy in places because I went to bed with it still damp but it’s come out lovely :) It’s a good hair day!

In Gratitude from Maya (ALM)

Thank you to all those following my page(s). I really appreciate it. And to those who read my articles and follow my work…as well as my professional work as spiritual facilitator and in spellcrafting for assisting others…I get such lovely emails…not just thank yous and stories of how energy healing and meditation have assisted someone in a personal situation or as part of their development goals…or even spells for increasing prosperity or health (which often manifest in ways we don’t dare dream of!). But also…lovely emails about my corsets…my modelling and dancing…my eloquence in articles about metaphysics, aspergers, subculture fashion and so on. It is heartening that the people I work with see me as I am and that I am able to inspire them in different ways through different aspects of my soul expression, work and creativity. It has always been my goal through Mayastar to provide the guidance and support students and clients need to help them move to the next level…whatever that is for them. I can use magick and tuition to assist, but my teaching is nothing unless applied by the student and so it is vital that what I provide is coaching and feedback…helping you to reach a state of feeling empowered and experiencing success and fulfillment in any whatever direction you are taking. I am truly grateful to be working with people to realise their dreams and goals…and to develop confidence in themselves and their potential as they realise it. It is inspiring for me to see such change and to know that I have been able to offer the kind of assistance tailored to each individual client and student. All are different…but my experience is that those who are ‘seekers’ and liable to work with me, a those that have something in common with me. Even if they don’t feel it or consciously recognise it at first, they are taking control of their lives and plotting a course to achieve that destination (destiny) they instinctively know is where they should be. It is a real honour to be part of that process. So, a big thank you to all! I couldn’t do it without you!

Henna Hair Blog Update

I have been doing some experiments with henna mixes. So far my experience… #CacaRouge from #Lush - good…but miss the natural henna smell…and can’t rinse it out well. V hard work. But good colour. Good condition. Good price. I used a semi permanent #Casting for my roots in an emergency…good colour and condition. Good price. Convenient. But colour didn’t last like henna does. Surya Henna Cream. I tried this as a herbal hair colourant…v natural…easy to use and good condition. But colour faded fast. And price v high for what it is. Won’t buy again. So my mix…I use #BAQHenna (#BodyArt Quality), with hot water. I don’t use lemon juice as I found it drying. Add two spoonfuls of #neem oil for deep conditioning. Add about 200mls of honey. And about 100mls of #AubreyOrganics conditioner (#conefree) for super conditioning. The mix is the consistancy of cake mix and it goes on smoothly without flakes of henna powder mess. I apply to dry hair for six hours. Great colour. Good price. Doesn’t fade. Amazing condition. Totally great. But I like to henna every two weeks. Not just for the condition but so my roots get a good build up of colour. The trouble is, my hair is a medium brown naturally and as henna builds up, the ends can become so deeply red they look burgundy. I quite like the mix of tones but it does mean the longer my hair gets the darker the ends…the more noticeable the redder shade at the root. So I did some research…honey, olive oil and lemon juice are all used as natural lightners as they produce peroxide or increase sensitivity to sunlight. The thing is…none of this can be quantified. It is quite hit and miss. And I find lemon juice v drying. So I tried something else…3% peroxide #SunIn…without heat applied (heat is applied to accellerate the lightening effect). I applied it once before I hennaed my hair so it was on for 6 hours then rinsed off with the henna. Peroxide fades the pigment within the hair and also fixes the henna more deeply in the outer part of each hair. Henna naturally smoothes the outside of the hair…peroxide makes it rougher. So I was concerned it might reduce the conditioning effect of the henna. It didn’t. It came out great. And after that I sprayed my hair with Sun In and left it on for 24 hours (no heat applied) and then washed and conditioned. I use silicone free conditioners from #Lush…#Jungle, #HappyHappyJoyJoy or #Veganese - and so far not only has the colour lifted but I think it takes the colour more deeply at the root and gives a good even and lasting colour. I will continue to use it just when I henna my hair…perhaps measuring a quantity into my mix…and from time to time spray it on and leave for 24 hours if the colour is becoming uneven. I am putting some photos up on Instagram, Flickr, Facebook and Tumblr showing the difference.
