Bleaching roots as they grow then henna for strawberry blonde advice

Hi all! I have had a forum rummage but thought now would ask for advice. This is for someone else:

Her hair is light mouse brown with a lot of grey that of course doesn't hold dye.  She dyes her hair blonde using L'Oreal or other such. She wants to henna because of it's grey covering talent. On a strand test of 4:1 cassi:henna she gets the perfect colour over her already bleached hair, but how to do the upkeep is the question. Wait for roots, bleach, then henna after a days rest or so? How to avoid horizontal stripes? Any information gratefully received!

Bleaching roots

 Hello,

 Yes you can use Ancient Sunrise henna and cassia over bleached hair. There is not need to let the hair rest for a few days. You can bleach the roots and then henna the same day. You could also use the henna/cassia mix and then bleach highlights into the hair to create some dimension.  Read this chapter on bleaching hair and henna : http://www.tapdancinglizard.com/AS_henna_for_hair/Chapter_10_lightening_... To avoid horizontal stripes, I would have a licensed stylist bleach the roots or the highlights so you don't have uneven coverage.
