Just a guess - if it's pure henna presumably it would fade with several washings and sunlight and time?

But let it dry cool lest it set the dye.

Do you mean after I've washed it, Mr S? I'm having a thick day... Embarassed Laughing should I wash it in cold water?

Felt a right plonker last night... it's always been really hard to get into. never could quite work it out, as once it was on, it fitted beautifully..
On it's removal yesterday I thought I'd busted it, as there was a massive rip in the side too... Shocked as well as the henna stain.. Shocked Rolling Eyes that's when I discovered there was a side zip.... Very Happy Laughing Embarassed Ah well, I've only had it a year.... Rolling Eyes

I'm guessing that Mr S means don't tumble dry it or dry on a radiator (and don't iron it.) You could wash it cold with one of those 30 degree washing powders - it would certainly be safer.

That's just what I was getting at, Dandy. Thanks for clarifying.
