Henna after hair dye
Hi, everyone.  I had my hair dyed copper/auburn last month at a salon.  I am debating using henna to cover my patches of gray.  If I do that, how long should I wait before using the henna?  Thanks in advance for the help.

Provided the henna you use is 100% pure and safe, you don't have to wait!

It is.  I'd ordered the Rajasthani Twilight a couple of months ago.  I was hesitant because I heard henna can change your curl pattern and I don't want to do that.  Should I only use it a certain number of times to prevent changes to my curl pattern or is that just a rumor, anyway?  Thanks for the quick response.

Henna can definitely change your curl - it can loosen it. Sometimes it takes multiple applications, sometimes it only takes one. If you want to avoid a change in your curl, you'll wanna use amla. 25g per 100g henna, use water as your liquid as amla is acidic. And then you'll want to do roots only after your first application.
