Can I go get highlights after hennaing?
I am just curious if anyone has any experience going to get highlights after using the henna.  I did the twilight/indigo/cassia mix that was recommended from this site.  But now I am wondering if I abandon, will my hair turn some strange color?

If you used indigo, you run the risk of the hair your highlighting turning green. You can always do a strand test to see, but the short answer is yes, your hair may end up a strange color.

I used 50% cassia, 25% henna and 25% indigo........

 

You think I still run the chance of turning green?

Yes, any mix that contained indigo runs the chance of turning green or blue with highlights or chemical lightener. Just as Ashley mentioned, it is best to perform a strand test to find out the results you will receive.

If I do a strand test and it turns blue, am I able to henna back over that section?

You can henna over the section. That is the only to get rid of the green after lightening.
