Thank you Alhaimy. This is a lot of useful information. I will look into haircolors with henna. I definitely want to do more research on it before I put henna in my hair. I'm a little worried about the resulting color.

I have a long time experience using henna and I do agree that henna makes the hair just lovely-hidratated,lively,shining,healthy and soothe the scalp.
Nothing like henna,it's the best hair care.It's also colors the hair very beautifully,in a natural way.
Unfortunatelly,henna can not covering the greys.It makes white hair turning kinda orange.I'm adding indigo for black hair,sticking to the directoins,but it just does not work.Please,share your experience if you know how to color the white hair into dark brown/black.
There are henna mixes for brown,black hena,which work simply because there are p-Phenylenediamine (PPD)in them ,reported to cause allergic and skin reactions,cancer,asthma etc.Still,i can't say for sure which one is the lesser of the two evels-PPD or hair dyes(which often contains PPD too)

Hi Elena, I've been colouring my hair with henna for a few years, I have never had any luck with covering greys with indigo and find it just so messy that I just skip that step.

What do you use for dye release when you mix your henna? I use half acid ( ie lemon juice or cider vinegar) and half water. By doing this I find that the white hair doesnt turn hair a bright orange, rather it is a dull orange which settles down to a dark brown after a couple of days and I can live with that. I also add a couple of teaps of olive oil to the mix which I think also helps tone down the end result

Also how long do you leave the henna on for as I think this determines how orange your hair goes, I leave mine for 2 to 3 hours. Remember that grey hair is more porous and so takes in colour quicker, in which you may want to consider playing around with how long the henna is on your hair

Hope this helps

Thank you! I was just thinking about this and my friend told me about henna too!
does it also work if you use lemon??? She said that if I put lemon juice in it, the color will get lighter or reddish...

hi yes you need something acidic in it to activate the dye release, how much you add is up to you ie all acid ir an acid and water mix, all acid gives you a more vibrant colour but lemon juice can be very drying so you can use vinegar or orange juice instead

dont forget that after when you colour hair with henna it coats the hair shaft rather than penetrating it so anything you do to it afterwards colourwise is affected. this is okay if you keep using henna forever but if you choose to bleach hair or use a chemical dye for example then it would not work effectively due to the henna.

for example if i go get highlights added to my hair i am always aked if i have henna on my hair as its dark red. this is the explanation my hairdresser gave me so i always bear it in mind now. although id love to use henna as its natural.

has anyone used walnuts to darken their hair btw? apparently they create a dark brown tint to the hair and eally help with the greys? i think you boil black walnut shells with rosemary herb and make a decoction.
