Bleaching hendigo; covering the green...

What an awesome forum! Thank you for it!

I rue the day I discovered hendigo! My hair looks like a weave made with calico cat. I am HOPING to eventually just use cassia, to tint my greys. But I may be dead by then! 

In the meantime I'm trying to seguey from this dark brown/light red/weird roots hodgepodge to a LIGHT-MEDIUM BROWN. Which is my my natural color minus the gray. 

Highlightening Cap.



I have henna and cassia and want to create highlights.

Has anyone used a hair cap that allows hair to be pulled through and then used henna and cassia mix to create high lights, if so how did it work out?

Thank you.


Trying to get Brown Hair


Indigo on hair that has been bleached, then henna-ed

Hi there folks,

I used to do henna all the time but decided I wanted a change and bleached my hair and put in a semipermanent blue, which has now mostly washed out. I'm planning to strip the rest of the colour out and then apply henna like I normally would (I just do a straight lemon juice mix) to see what kind of red I get (my natural shade is a medium brown, so I get a nice auburn normally).

Cassia and Henna for highlights.



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?

Help: Can I re-terp my henna?

Hi everybody,

I just made a batch of Jamila 2016 henna paste, used KISS recipe. Yesterday I tried a design on my hand and realized that perhaps I haven't terped it long enough. I left the paste on overnight. Now the paste has been off since 12 hrs and the colour is so far only a light brown. The weather is cold right now where I live (inside home temperature average 18 deg C) so I'm thinking maybe I should have let the mixture sit out another day (3 instead of 2). 


KInd of giving up on henna

Hi.  I so love the idea of henna and the other natural products available on the AS website and all the forums and the PDF book chapters are so wonderful for learning.  It's been a few months now and three applications of the AS henna for gray hair to auburn kits, following instructions given.  Sigh.  The hint of orange just doesn't go away and it's just not good with my skin tones, making my age look more than it needs to.  It's never really gone to auburn.  I am just about to turn back to chemical dyes to get the mahogany I like on the main part of the hair shaft with a nice medium brown

Grey Turning Very Orange

I have been using the same mixture 1 part henna to 2 parts indigo of Rajasthani Twighlight and Sudina Indigo for several years and have noticed a much more orange color that doesn't deepen with time lately. I follow this procedure. 

Cassia for conditioning over henna without colour change... what I want. Have had a bit of a scrummage through the forum topics but thought now I would just ask direct.

I dont do a full henna head very often, maybe once a year, but wanted the strengthening/conditioning benefits of cassia. I really don't want a colour change.

Maybe simply doing a full head of henna more often might be better for this, but am wary of it getting too dark and weighed down. 


Fake Jamila Henna "Jameela"


I got very excited today when I found some Jamila henna locally.

I bought a box, the package was green, there is a batch number 15052015 and an exp date 04-2018

Mfg date 05 2015

Premierè qualité Henné

Then I realised it is spelt JAMEELA

I had added hot water and lemon juice and its already looking very bright and I would not have suspected a thing.

Can anyone tell me if this sounds suspicious?

Thankyou in advance!
