Henna in my ears...

I bit the bullet and dyed my hair last night. I was trying to NOT color it, but I am so grey now! My hair was orange on the ends where the old henna was coming out and turning red as it did- brown in the middle and white on the roots about four inches down! Ick. Plus- at the Girl Scout fall event on Saturday a friend I hadn't seen in awhile thought I'd sprayed that colored white hairspray in my hair (THAT is how white headed I am!)

So, this time I didn't try the cassia obovata like the last. It turns white hair blonde, and didn't quite look right on me. I used a mixed henna product called Light Mountain Natural. This does look better, but it's pretty dark. I'm hoping it lightens up in a day or two. It did cover ALL the grey and it's really soft and healthy.

Maybe I won't look like such a dork in Disneyworld. W
Well, maybe?

I've never heard of coloring your hair with henna, but I'm very intrigued! It is like a permanent color, or does it wash out over time?

April,
I'm not sure what you call it. It wears off, but doesn't leave a line like if you dyed your hair. The last kind I used "Cassia Obovata" lasted about 50 days, maybe a little less. This one I'm not sure about yet! Here is a good website that tells you about it: http://www.mehandi.com/shop/hairhenna.html
