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!

can indigo be used on level 9-10 blond to create grey?

after many years of using henndigo, I decided to let my grey go and I am really enjoying the process. I've had my hair that was dyed bleached all the way to a level 8,  9 or 10 and have tried different blue tints to get it to grey. I'm wondering if indigo can be used in this way. I'd be so psyched if it could! Anyone out there tried this?

Oiliness after henna for hair

HI I've been hennaing my short fine hair for a few months. Is it normal for hair to become super oily? I need to wash it every two days now due to the oiliness. If it were longer hair I probably wouldn't need to but it looks awful if I don't wash it. Also when I do wash it, the longer parts of my hair feel very course and crunchy. However once it is dry it appears very healthy and shiny. Does anyone have a solution to the oiliness. I don't use any other product in my hair for styling. Just use a no cone no sls shampoo and conditioner. Thank you! Kaybee

Amla "Solo"

Hi everyone.   I have a question about amla.  

If I use amla only on previously dyed henna hair, will it tone down the orange/bright red?  If so, how do I do the application?  And what is the most likely result? 

(I'm looking for a light auburn-brown, but I'm currently VERY red.)

Thank you!

Where to buy buxus?

Hi.  I checked Mehandi's website for buxus, and I couldn't find it.  Am I missing it?  Could someone please post a link to purchase?  

Thank you!
