amla not helping to preserve curls

I really miss my naturally curly hair. Henna/indigo/cassia has made it straight as a board and limp and I don't feel like myself. Yes, I use amla every single time and it does not help.

Thinking of switching to straight cassia. Does cassia have the same hair straightening properties.?

Straighter, Oily Hair

Hi Everyone,

Two things:

First, I'm wondering if anyone else has had henna turn their hair greasy? It's always been that way, and when I've gone back to my natural colors, or in the few horrid times I went back to artificial hair colors so I'm certain it is from the henna. I normally mix with water and just a  couple of teaspoons of vinegar, or a splash of lemon.  I'm curious about why this happens and if something can be changed.

Henna in blonde hair

Hello everyone,

I need help to clear some facts.

My hair is natural medium blonde, but I have bleached highlights, and I wanted a red hair similar to Julianne Moore and Sophie Turner, that looked natural.

I wanted to know what tone would it be if I put Henna 100% natural in my hair.

Is it going to be too different the bleached part from the natural part?

And will Henna dye my natural hair without needing to bleach it before?

Thanks

 

 

Where can I buy the darkest henna?

I'm looking to explore new suppliers. Ive been relying on jamaila for years and it seems to be losing its kick for me. Not as deep of a stain that I'd like to see. I'm not sure if its my supplier or the jamaila. Itself. What is everyone using now adays ?

Help! Quick advice needed...

I use Henna for Gray Hair (medium brunette) from time to time, last time was almost a year ago. I have a lot of new gray to cover up so I ordered a new box. Normally I mix henna with apple juice, wait for dye release, usually four hours or so and then then go ahead and make the indigo mix and apply to hair.

In my new box I found a packet of Malluma Kristalovino powder and new instructions. The new instructions say to combine with henna and distilled water, mix and let sit for 8-12 hours!

Questions re: mixes with beetroot, hibiscus powder, red clay, etc.

My grays are getting too orange for the rest of my hair, which is a deep, gorgeous wine red (Monsoon + Copperberry) with highlights (bleach). Some of my bleach highlights, as well as my grays, have become brassy orange.  I know they will darken with repeated henna applications, and leaving henna on for many hours.  Still, I am curious to know if I could get red tones by mixing beet root, or hibiscus powder, or red clay with my Monsoon so I don't have to use up so much henna.  If not those relatively cheap options, would diprotic acid help add the rose tones (as opposed to orange tones)?

How to adjust my colour from deep reddish brown to ash brown?

I've been using henna for many years now.  I love the deep reds I get from Rajasthani henna.  I used to use it with a bit of indigo but the last half year I have used it on it's own and still got a deep red on my grays.  I've now decided the reddish hair just isn't suiting my face and I want to go back to my natural gray (which is a salt and pepper with dark brown & gray)  Before I do that I want to turn my hair colour as brown as I can get it.  That way it will blend in a little better with my dark brown coming in and I won't have 3 colours in my hair.  I have amla, indigo , & henn

Cassisa for covering/tinting/dyeing gray hair

Very confused about cassia.

If I want to use it to tint/cover gray and white hairs, do I let it sit overnight for dye release? Should I use an acidic liquid and if so, what? Could I mix amla with water and if so, in what ratio? How long do I leave on hair?

 

 

Advice on henna paste

Hello everybody!

 I used to be a member of this forum years ago but after I decided to get a pixie cut, I left my hair with highlights and kept going blonder over the past few years, and now my hair is very long again.

Orange roots help please!

I normally use 50/50 twilight and indigo one step process. The indigo fades so quickly on my grey roots so I did an experiment to see how my hair would look without indigo and used twilight and amla on my roots. It is way too orange so I need to go over again with henna and indigo. My question is how long should I leave it on for?  I don't want to go black. I was thinking an hour? Normally I leave on for 4 hrs but that is on grey, now it's orange I'm not sure. Thank you!!
