First time Coloring graying dark brown hair with Yemen Henna and Indigo

Just mixed the henna with orange juice (100% juice from a carton).  Now I'm wondering if I should have used something else for this process.  I did the strand test with pure lemon juice.  Any advice or recommendations?

Its fine. So long as the liquid you use is acidic to some degree it will produce the same amount of dye and the same color in the end - I have used LJ and now use chamomile tea, I didnt notice a single change safe for that tea is easier on my hair. Heavily acidic liquids like lemon juice will continue to gradually oxidize over time - this is so slight you probably wont notice it for several months. I believe OJ is the same, but I could be wrong on that.

 

You will get dye release a little faster with OJ than you did with LJ.
