First time henna user


 I did just the very front of my hair because I am starting to get gray hairs around my edges. After having it on for an hourI I washed it out. About 15 minutes after washing it out I got a massive headache. I did this yeaterday evning and I still have the headache.  I just took something for the headache to see if it goes away. Does anyone no why it caused me to get a headache.

I don't think anyone knows for sure why this happens to some people. I've read speculation about tannins being a migraine trigger for some folks, and some wonder if it's related in any way to G6PD deficiency. But I have not seen any definitive answers.

here is an old thread discussing indigo and headaches:[]=12025
