walkingwiththemoon said: how does henna work on dark hair? does it lighten it or change the color completely? i'm think about doing it soon.

Henna doesn’t lighten hair. Its a translucent dye, meaning it adds a reddish/copper tint to your existing hair color. The darker the hair, the less visible the color change will be. Dark brown hair turns dark auburn. The intensity of the color increases with each henna application. On really dark, almost black hair, the reddish tint will be subtle and will show up best in the sunlight.

If you like your hair to be shades of brown, auburn, or red then you’ll absolutely love what henna does for your hair. The more times you apply henna, the shinier and softer it becomes. The color is permanent, but as long as you use 100% pure body art quality henna, then you will have no problems using chemical dyes on top of it. 

If you’re concerned with growing out the color, then I would suggest starting with a low concentration to see if you like what it does. That way when it grows out the difference will be subtle. To do this, just mix your henna paste with conditioner (I recommend a silicone free one like V05) to dilute it (maybe do 1:1 ratio) and apply that to your hair. Let it set for a few hours and you should have a slight reddish tint that will develop over the next few days.

Hope that helps! :)

There’s no way to lighten your hair using just henna. You’ll have to use a chemical bleach to lighten your ends. You can deepen the intensity of the ginger color in your hair with henna and leave out your ends…that’s the only way I can see henna being used for this effect.

My red ombré hair with henna! (Before, I only used neutral henna and this is my first  henna color ever, so I didn’t “take” well on the hair, but now it is a bright red color! :) )image

Yes after several applications of henna, you will notice it get considerably thicker and stronger. If you want to get the same benefits without the color, I would suggest using cassia (another plant).

Anonymous said: what do you know about the no-poo method of washing hair, and is it good for henna'd hair?

I use the “no-poo” method to wash my hair. I just use VO5 conditioner to clean my hair. It is good for all types of hair, henna’d hair included. Your henna’d hair color will not fade even if you use shampoo though, because the color is permanent. CO (conditioner only) washing is just my preference because it is less drying than using shampoo. Hope this answered your question?

Anonymous said: i have dyed red hair and i was wondering what my hair would look like if i used henna. any thoughts? thanks!

It would probably add more red tones to your hair! Keep in mind though, that the red dye in your hair right now will fade over time even after using henna, so the color you get after hennaing might become a bit less red as that dye fades. Still I think it would look good!
