Water only in hair henna

I've been henna-ing my hair for several years now, and have always used tea, coffee or apple cider vinegar in the mix. Last night I forgot, and simply added water. The resulting color was gorgeous, a rich pure red. My natural color is ash brown and about 40 percent gray. Is this a fluke, or is there some science to this mystery?

light brown henna ratios

I am a newbie, first let me say that I am very impressed with Ancient Sunrise website as far as the quality of the product being sold and the provided resources, this is why I choose it.   I just did my first sample henna from a hairbrush sample, I have probably 80% grey at temples and been chemically dying my hair for atleast 15 years and it is dry.  I used the Henna for Gray Hair Medium Brnette, Cassia and Indigo to acheive light brown, I used orange juice to mix since the Cassia did not have the Malluma Kristalovino in it.

Different colors of twilight henna in packets

this is a test

Light Brown with golden highlights


I'd like to achieve a colour that is close to "Light Brown with golden highlights".

What ratio of Henna-Cassia-Indigo should I use to get close to the colour?

I have about 60% grey hair. And I would like to apply the dye to the roots only.
