Yogurt used to lighten/remove henna

Has anyone ever heard of this or tried it? I read that a yogurt containing lactobacillus applied to dry hair then covered for an hour could remove henna but only if the henna has been on the hair for longer than 5 weeks.

Ordering more henna on Friday and plan to use it just after it arrives as I need to get my roots even with the rest of my hair. I really want to pull some of the darkness out of the length first. If I can't do it naturally than so be it I'll deal with the slighlty darker hair.

I read about the vit c but wondering if anyone has tried this method. Been googling lactobacillus trying to figure out how it would breakdown the henna. I keep picturing it eating the henna. LOL

Re: Yogurt used to lighten/remove henna

Here's a thread about lightening. There's a yogurt method and some others...

You may also want to try the search box in the upper left and see if you can find more. Its a topic that comes up a lot, and every one seems to have their own ideas about how to do it.

I used plain full fat yogurt mixed with about 1/4 cup amla powder for this purpose when I had about 4 full-head hennas in my hair. It lightened it a couple of shades after several of these yogurt/amla treatments.

Honey lightening is another method to consider - see the Long Hair Community forum for full info on that method. It isn't removing henna but will lighten the hair due to the peroxide honey forms.

Re: Yogurt used to lighten/remove henna

Thanks to both of you! I would have never thought to mix amla in the mix.

 

I tried a search but nothing came up for yogurt with lactobacillus. Guess it is all trial and error.
