Changing orange/red henna results to rose red henna colour.

My initial plan was to go strawberry blonde. I made a big mistake to leave Yemen light/cassia sunshine mix on for 4 hours.  The result was a very potent orange/red.  There is no chance of going strawberry blonde (unless there is a way of removing or fading henna?). 

I would then rather prefer to be a rosy red than orange.

Would Sudina over Yemen light push the colour towards rose?

Does Sudina cover grey?

Thanks

Re: Changing orange/red henna results to rose red henna colour.

Repeated henna will darken the red tones. Suggest a strand test using the same henna or another one, for 4 hours. If it is still too orange, add 10% indigo to the henna.

Higher dye content hennas are better at giving deeper red tones on gray hair. Even a lower dye content henna gives orange color on gray unless the gray is quite dye resistant.
