Swimming in bathing pools and sea.



does swimming in bathing pools which have chlorine in them have an effect on cassia/henned hair,  can sea water effect it also?

Thank you.

Regular Hair Dye after a year of henna

Hello, so I tried to keep doing henna but my gray shows up after a week and the henna process is so long I can't do it anymore ;( I have been using indigo henna from Rainbow and I was wondering if that was safe to go back to regular chemical dye to cover my grey ? 

Thanks in advance !

Will an olive oil treatment strip color from my henna+indigo+amla in my hair?

It's been four days since I dyed my hair with henna, indigo, and amla I mixed as instructed on the tap dancing lizard's pdf for a cool medium brown. I love the color that it's left in my hair, but now I'm looking for a way to add more moisture and relax the fizziness. 

indigo vs. buxus

Hi, I'm a first time henna user.  Getting close to taking the plunge and about to order supplies.   I'll be starting off (after application of Color Oops) a patchy strawberry blond / light brown shade, with roots that are 80% gray 20% medium brown.  My chemically processed hair could really use a conditioning boost, so I kinda want to include cassia in the mix, which I'm thinking should work out color wise too, since I'd like to wind up some variation of golden copper.  So I was thinking a mix of henna and cassia would work.  But I'd rather it lean brownish than pop up bright orange.

Lightening Before Henna

Hello! I am brand new to Henna but after hearing that that's how Grace Coddington dyes her hair ..... I have been introduced to a whole new world. Also chemical dyes have not been getting my hair red enough! And it certainly doesn't stay. 

Using henna on POROUS processed hair

Hi! I've never tried henna but plan to give it a go after I do some more learning about it.   I'm 52, so my hair's been around the block!   It's just past my shoulders and actually in pretty good condition, but it's always been porous, partly just due to genetics I think, and also due to a lifetime of traditional box color and/or salon visits for chemical colorings.  

Henna + Indigo + Acacia Catechu

Hi henna friends,

I have been a fan of henna for many years- always using 100% henna on my naturally medium brown hair and getting a red ( especially in the sun) deep auburn result which I love but am slightly bored of now. 

I am looking now to get a mid brown result, more in line with my natural hair colour. I don't mind if there is a hint of red. 

I've purchased henna, indigo and something called katha ( or acacia catechu ) from hennaboy in UK. 

Shampoo and Conditioner to use with cassia and henna.



What is the best shampoo and conditioner to use when one has used cassia/henna mix on the hair.

Thank you.

amla not helping to preserve curls

I really miss my naturally curly hair. Henna/indigo/cassia has made it straight as a board and limp and I don't feel like myself. Yes, I use amla every single time and it does not help.

Thinking of switching to straight cassia. Does cassia have the same hair straightening properties.?

Straighter, Oily Hair

Hi Everyone,

Two things:

First, I'm wondering if anyone else has had henna turn their hair greasy? It's always been that way, and when I've gone back to my natural colors, or in the few horrid times I went back to artificial hair colors so I'm certain it is from the henna. I normally mix with water and just a  couple of teaspoons of vinegar, or a splash of lemon.  I'm curious about why this happens and if something can be changed.
