Cassia and Henna for highlights.

 

Hi

I have mid to dark brown hair with 15% grey.

I have just pruchased a packet of cassia and a packet of henna.

I want to mix the two to hopefully make my grey strands look like highlights.

I have tried cassia with apple juice before, but this did not change the greys at all, so I thought by adding some henna this time with cassia it would give more color.

How much henna would I need to add to the cassia to turn the greys to a strawbeery blond color.

Also do I still need to mix with something acidic or just water?

Many thanks.

Strawberry blonde highlights

Hello,

I would start with 4 parts cassia and I part henna. You can increase the henna amount if you want more reddish tones, or add a little indigo if you want more of a deeper neutral blonde.

Have a good day!

You'll want to mix with

You'll want to mix with something acidic and let it sit for 8-12 hours covered at room temperature. Apple juice is a good choice.
