Black berries?
I think I posted this on the wrong page first. Newbie excuse! I was wondering if anyone has added black berries to the brew before straining to change the tone of henna. Any thoughts?

Re: Black berries?

The dye molecule in black berries is pretty big, meaning it won't penatrate the way henna or indigo can.  The resulting color change would be superficial and very temporary (if noticeable at all) on both skin and hair.  The acidity from the fruit might help dye release, though, depending on what else goes into your mix.  I once used home-bottled cherry juice with fantastic results, but chalk it up to the right acidity, not the color of the juice.
