pH question about water for mixing henna

Hi.  I've been curious about the pH of my filtered drinking water, so I bought pH testing drops ( "pH Perfect" brand).   After discovering that my filtered water is slightly alkaline (it tested at an 8) , I got curious and decided to test Dasani bottled water and also CVS brand distilled water.  Both the Dasani water and the distilled water tested at a 4, which is quite acidic. 

darkening hair question

Hi there -

For about a year, I've been using a cassia-henna-indigo with copperberry mixture to dye my gray roots. The proportions are:

100g Cassia + 2tsp henna with 25g copperberry
12 hour dye release over night
add 1/2 tsp indigo in AM
apply to wet hair for 3-4 hours

indigo sticking to hair that wasn't dyed?

Hi, my henna recipe for my 75% gray/25% dark brown roots is 80% twilight henna/20% cassia mixed with amla.  This is giving me great gray cover, and a beautiful copper red (my goal color) in indoor lighting but outdoors, oh my goodness, it's very orange, even weeks after oxidizing.  I'd like to tone it down a bit, meaning brown it up just a tad.   I tried several different solutions over the past year to try to achieve this, but nothing really worked till I added a very small amount (10%) of indigo to my recipe.  I was scared to try that, since I'd had an indigo mishap in the past, but that

Understanding Measurements

Hello ~

I feel like this is a basic math question that I should be able to figure out, but for some reason it's escaping me.

Looking at the powder weights -

If I want to use a henna / alma mix, would I use 3 TBSP henna + 1 TBSP alma, or would I go by the weights and use 21 grams of henna + 7 grams of alma?

Hopefully that made senese?

 

Thanks in advance!
