Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

I love looking at the pictures of real people's henna and indigo hair on the Henna For Hair website.  I swear I have looked at every single one at least twice!  I have noticed though that they almost always take the picture after their first henna, and right after they do it.  I would really like to see or read experiences with long-time (more than one time:) henna users.  Just wondering if anyone out there would like to share pictures of their hennaed heads.

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

Well, you might like this... its a gallery of my various henna pictures and kinda follows how I've gone from copper-orange on bleached hair to an auburn on my natural ash brown roots, and some of the multiple hennas I've done on my previously bleached length. I need to snap some new pictures though, I think, since my bangs are sadly no longer blond due to my job.

I need to add better pictures, but for now, these are what I have uploaded. I listed some stuff under each one regarding my henna history on the various parts of my hair.

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

Henna and Indigo on "darkest brown" hair with a few grays--pictures show almost three years' worth of full-head hendigoes at different ratios.  The resulting difference is very subtle on my very dark hair; other than the degree of "red glow" in different lighting, most people can't see much change between the 2:1 indigo:henna, the 1:1 indigo:henna, and the 1:2 indigo:henna...but I swear I do!

Enjoy!

But you're also the one applying, xyz... you know the differences in the mixes, what that means and you're *looking* for them, so you're gonna see them.

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

 Wow, thanks guys!  I enjoyed the pics.

ACNW, I love the color!  Do you purposely bleach and then henna your hair or are you hennaing over old bleach?

Amyhenna, I used Purity too and also have previously bleached ends, a hendigo mix middle, and staight Purity on top.  Here are my pics. photobucket.com/kellishenna  I am interested to know what happened or will happen with your hair because I myself am concerned with my hair being too dark in places and trying to even it out.

xyz, you have some beautiful, shiny hair, girl!  I understand about being "fickle".  I am always changing my hair color!

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

I used to bleach, then henna over it - which resulted in the orange colors. I no longer bleach and the first couple of pictures in my gallery show the results of that. My previously bleached length has finally reached a shade close to my roots, but it is still very orange in certain lighting.

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

This is the first time trying to post pictures so sorry in advance if I mess it up. These pics are almost all the same. Taken at the same time. I was trying to show someone how henna doesn't fade. I've been using henna for over three years and haven't done the lengths in over a year at least. I only do roots.

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

Thank you :) The very longest strands are at waist length but it's tapered so most is a tad shorter.

I only use henna and I think the last I used was Jamila and before that Punjabi Prime. My next batch will be Celebration which I haven't tried yet.

Gothiccat, your hair is AWESOME! Looking at just one of these pictures made me want to go whip up a batch of henna for tomorrow.

What is your starting hair color? How do you get streaks?

 Hi amyhenna. Thanks :)

My starting hair color is medium brown/auburn. The streaks are probably from the sun in the pictures. Like most everyone else's henna my hair just glows in the sun like it's on fire :)

 flesh58chevy can you please tell me the details about the Celebration.  For ex what did you mix, how long wait for dye release, how long on.  I love love love your color and your starting color is close but darker than mine.

flesh58chevy, your pics prove you can get actual red color on med/dark brown hair! I'm bookmarking them.

Re: Hennaed Hair Pics, Anyone?

Hi venusfire, I mix my Celebration with Chamomile tea.  I use about 6 tea bags in 2 cups of water, let it cool to room temp, mix into my henna and let it sit for about 3 to 4 hours (do hand test to check dye release).  I typically leave my henna on for about 6 hours.

One call out on the Celebration, it takes about 7 to 9 days for it to fully oxidize to red on my hair (instead of flaming orange it starts out with), the other types I've tried only took 3 to 5 days to fully oxidize. 

 

Carrie, with my multiple Henna's I've been able to get a really pretty rich red on my chemically treated hair, a bit darker/more brown on my virgin hair but I still love it.  Finding this site and discovering Henna has made my hair very happy :)
