New to Henna and want to know what to do with my awful bright blue black hair dye

Its an awful color of blue and seem drying and almost like a fuzz ball ontop of my head. What would help get the color a darker black and give my hair life back?

Purchase a henna from mehandi.com (recommend one of the higher dye content hennas like yemen) and indigo. Purchase about 100 grams more than whats recommended (just to be safe).
 

Mix with a gentle acid such as apple juice or a tea such as chamomile. Once you have dye release, mix in more liquid till smooth, apply, cover with plastic wrap then a beanie and leave on for at least 3 hours (overnight would be fine if you think you can sleep in it).

Rinse and shampoo. No conditioner.

Mix the indigo with warm water and a tablespoon of salt. Apply right away and leave on an hour.

 

Rinse, shampoo (something very gentle) and condition.

 

 

Voilà! Raven's wing black. No blue.
